Honolulu (KHON2) – Oahu’s only fumigation preparation services company called VitalPrep is taking the hassle out of getting your home ready for treatment.
VitalPrep gets properties ready by taking care of government and industry requirements that must happen to ensure that the fumigation goes off without a hitch. “We basically take the place of calling several other people such as; a landscaper, a handyman, a cleaning service, an organizer, bonded security and a pest control professional,” explains owner Vinetta Lloyd-Hughes.
The company tackles standard interior and exterior prep. “Inside this means bagging all foods, medicines and other ingestables. Moving plants to safety,” adds Lloyd-Hughes. “Addressing storage bins, appliances, etc. Outdoors includes moving gravel, tying back palm trees, disassembling decks and gutters. Moving any obstacles to a proper tent drop. Besides that, we will conserve stationary plants, clean the home after the fumigation, restore the interior and exterior of the property putting everything you want back, back. We even offer an overnight on-site bonded security to monitor the tenting site.”
The VitalPrep team is professionally trained with the standards set by the product manufacturers, the State of Hawaii and the particular requests of the pest control company administering the gas. This includes industry continuing education and a consistent review of practices. They are knowledgeable on all aspects of termite fumigation and bedbug extermination.
Lloyd-Hughes saw a need for a company like VitalPrep, saying “Pest control companies have come to trust our process and professionalism so they will refer their clients. Businesses like offices, churches and schools have relied on us to take care of large prep needs. We’ve become popular with real estate and property management professionals because we can provide the work needed to close a real estate transaction that is being delayed due to a fumigation. And, although we anticipated being a great help to elder homeowners, we have happily become a great source of relief for our kupuna.”
