The storage area in the other side of our 700-sq-ft apartment was apparently harboring fleas. We didn't see any in our place, but our landlord found them in the storage area and decided to bug-bomb both the storage area and our apartment.
There was no talking him out of it, and there was very little notice given. We had to leave for 48 hours, and when we came back I couldn't smell any chemicals but my throat got sore. It's been almost a week now, and my throat is still getting a little sore when I sit on the couch or chair that was nearest to where the "bomb" went off. I've had the windows open and have been running fans and everything.
My military husband says that those foggers contain so much poison that the Geneva Convention has outlawed their use on humans.
I was able to use bed-sheets to cover some of the furniture, but I don't know if it did any good or not. If the stuff is actually a gas, doesn't that mean it permeates through fabric?
Anyway, I need to know the best way to detox my house after this. I've washed all the kitchen surfaces, but what about the walls? Do I need to re-wash all my clean clothes if they were hanging out? What about the mattresses on our beds? Bedding? Dishes in the cabinets? Carpet?
I'm stressing out like you wouldn't believe, over this. Please, I need some encouragement and guidance. I know I don't want these toxins in my home, but I have no idea how to clean them up.
Oh, and the landlord happens to be a close family member. Any suggestions of complaints or anything against him will not be useful. :)
