Shipping fumigation

At Rentokil, we provide specialist ship fumigation services which may be a requirement when importing and exporting goods.

With years of experience and highly trained technicians, you don’t need to look any further than us for the highest quality fumigation services.

It is important to have the whole vessel clean and pest-free to ensure product that is stored on board is not infected and not at risk of contamination.

How shipping fumigation works

Shipping fumigation involves the treatment of the holds of a ship (whether they be full of commodity or empty) or the treatment of certain areas within the superstructure of the ship itself.

Treating export goods

With exports, the holds of the ship have to be inspected for cleanliness and insect activity prior to loading. If any pest activity is found, fumigation treatment may be required.

The product going into the hold may also be infected which could require fumigation treatment.

Treating imports

With imports, the consignment may have been infected prior to loading offshore and as part of Australia’s import requirements, the consignment (as well as the vessel itself) must be pest and disease-free.

Call Rentokil on 1300 306 494 to schedule an appointment to discuss your requirements for shipping or other fumigation services.

Silo fumigation

Silo fumigation is a cost-effective method to treat large amounts of grain product within its storage vessel (e.g. a silo). It is a viable, alternative service to shipping or container fumigation.

The use of Rentokil’s silo fumigation service can help your business comply with strict food guidelines.

Key benefits of silo fumigation

Most silo fumigations are done to save time and money due to the fact that large amounts of products can be treated in one hit for a relatively low cost compared to container or shipping fumigation.

Pressure testing silos

The silo must meet similar protocols as the pressure decay fumigation for the product to be suitable for treatment within it.

A pressure test on a silo does not have to be done every time the silo is used for treatment but it is recommended that it is inspected every time before use and pressure tested every 6 months or when modifications have been made.
