How Long After A Pest Control Inspection Can I Clean?
December 7, 2018
Having pests in your homes such as roaches, rats and spiders can be quite an irritating problem, especially if they seem to just be growing more and more over time. Not to mention that aside from creeping us out, these pests can also be carriers of different types of diseases. Which is why we strongly recommend that upon the first sign of a pest infestation in your home, you immediately call in our team at Go-Forth Pest Control.
Cleaning Your Home After A Pest Control Inspection
Now, you’ve probably heard of how pre-pest control inspections and pest control treatments take place. But you’re somehow asking, what happens after the pest control treatment? What are the things that you’re supposed to do? Is it like a business-as-usual type of thing or are there things that you should consider before performing any activities again in the place where the treatment has recently been made. Here are some of the things that you should look out for after the pest control service has been initiated in your home:
And by that we mean “wait”. If the pest control team advised you to vacate the premises then it’s probably expected that you give it a little more time before going back to your house after they’ve done the treatment.
Throw Away Contaminated Food
Yes, if you somehow unintentionally left that box of pizza in the kitchen counter prior to the treatment, then it’s probably no good to your anymore to still eat it. Any exposed food during the treatment process are most probably contaminated with harmful chemicals so no, don’t eat that box of pizza anymore!
Do Not Clean Right Away
Yes, you read that right. While we understand how you want to go back to your place and have your normal routine back, we strongly advice for you not to clean your place right away. While our team at Go-Forth are trained well enough not to leave a place looking like a mess, we understand that there are just some things you want done your way. But for this one, sit it out and let the treatment take effect first before cleaning and spraying other chemicals in your home right away.
Repair Any Leaks
If you were not able to fix any broken pipes and sinks, then this may be the time to really fix those stuff. As pests usually like moist places and so the goal is not to make an inviting environment for them to dwell in.
Store Papers Properly
Yes. Apparently, paper can be a great source of food for some pests. Wet paper, brown paper, white and basically anything else that is paper. Likewise, do not store too much old newspapers and magazines in your home to prevent further nesting. Here at Go-Forth Pest Control, our goal is to provide you the safe and pest free environment that you deserve. Which is why you can trust us to do things the way you want it and the way we know works best for you and your family.
