Spring is well underway and that means spring-cleaning! A task many of us dread and put off for as long as possible. However, getting your home in tiptop shape will not only help clear your mind but it will also make your home safer.
As you clean your home, you may find it is much dirtier than you thought and this dirt is what insects love. People can react negatively to the dust and pet dander allergens hidden throughout their home. Consequently, this dirt attracts pests that can also lead to allergens and sickness in people. For example, did you know that people can be allergic to cockroaches? Allergic reactions to cockroaches include stuffy nose, rash and asthma. Roaches are also known to spread more than 30 different kinds of bacteria, including E. coli and Salmonella.
Our friends at Pest World have created a thorough guide to cleaning your home and eliminating common elements that attract a multitude of pests. It’s a big job but once complete, you’ll be thrilled you tackled it. Happy cleaning!
