Heating up phase
During this period the areas under treatment are heated up to a temperature range of between 50°C to 60°C. The temperature increase takes between 16 to 30 hours to avoid any kind of damage to the building. The duration of this phase depends of the materials and the building structure. (concrete, steel, glass, etc.)
Perfect growing conditions for insects are between 20°C to 32°C. Once the room temperature is higher than 40°C the insects become more active due to the stress caused by the heat.
At this stage insects will get visible while looking for cooler areas.
During this phase the room temperature will be between 50°C to 60°C for approximately 12 to 24 hours. Termico Heaters are designed with safety in mind to avoid damages on heat sensitive equipment while saving energy through the automatic temperature control system.
After the Active Phase the temperature of the room is slowly reduced to an ambient temperature, to avoid stress in the building structure. Fresh air is recirculated into the room and Termico equipment is removed from the area allowing the cleaning process to start.
