Call on Melbourne’s Experts in Fumigation Solutions
We offer a range of fumigation services in Melbourne:
Shipping Container Fumigation
We conduct comprehensive shipping and cargo container fumigation services. We fumigate shipping containers using one of the two following methods:
Pressure Decay Fumigation – This involves pressure testing the shipping container to ensure it is ‘Gas Tight’. Once it is determined that it is ‘Gas Tight’, the container is then fumigated without the use of a tarp to seal in the fumigant.
Tarped Fumigation – This method is used when pressure decay cannot be used. The container is covered with a fumigation tarp that is gas-proof. It is weighted down on all edges to achieve a gas seal and then the container is treated.
Flexible On-Call Service
Dawson’s are available for fumigation in Melbourne 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We’re here to help.
