  3. Mattresses and box springs must be stripped of all bedding and covers.

  4. All furniture along walls in rooms to be treated must be moved away from the wall, at least two feet, to gain access to floor moldings.  Outlet and switch plate covers need to be taken off the walls.

Put clean dried clothes in a new plastic bag.
