When Best 1 Cleaning and Pest Control visits a home to eradicate a pest problem, we also try to educate the customer in their responsibilities to help prevent a problem from occurring. This can be done by applying a few simple cleaning rules around your home.
Cleaning Rules For Every Home
Every 6-12 months you should pull out the fridge and give this area a good clean. You can start of by just simply vacuuming. Then a mop over the floor; this will help eliminate any food sources for insects such as cockroaches. Cockroaches will harbour where there is a good food source. The fridge is a great place for cockroaches to look for food. Over time lots of small pieces of food will get kicked under the fridge and this is an easy meal for insects of all kinds’ not just cockroaches. Always keep bench tops wiped down clean and dirty dishes cleaned and put away.
The hinges on cupboard doors in a kitchen can get very dusty and dirty. It is important to keep these clean also as this is one of the places cockroaches will lay eggs. Sugar soap is a good cleaning agent for most general cleaning around the kitchen. Keep the inside of the cupboards clean. Now and then vacuum them out. You don’t have to take everything out of the cupboards; just run over everything with the end of the vacuum cleaner.
The toaster is also a very important item to keep clean around the kitchen. After you a done using the toaster, it should always be turn upside down and shaken over the sink. This will get out the main of the loose debris, and stop it collecting in the cupboard where it is stored. The main thing to prevent insect infestation is hygiene. If you clean around your home on a regular basis, you should only need a pest technician to visit once a year for a general treatment. By doing this, you should never get to the stage of an infestation.
