In brief: You don't have to

Silverfish are called thysanura and are passive prehistoric insects common to most all households.
They don't bite and don't transmit any diseases. So while a little creepy, they aren't a big problem. But if you must, you can call a professional exterminatior or use those "bombs" that you set off while you are away. Careful around pets, children and fish.
