Moving Truck Fumigation

Prior to fumigation service and required for BBFS warranty, BBFS recommends that all clients hire an independent certified K-9 Inspection company to insure that their “NEW” location is bed bug free. BBFS maintains a partner network and would be happy to provide several reputable K9 Inspection companies to consider.
BBFS recommends that clients work directly with their Realtor and licensed Pest Control Operator (PCO) to insure an Integrated Pest Management program is adopted at move-in. This insures a client’s overall pest management success and effectiveness, and ultimately a client’s highest satisfaction.
