Cleanliness is incredibly important. We wake up – brush our teeth, wash our faces and comb our hair before we start the day. We must also make sure our homes and office spaces are clean to! The constant removal of garbage bags, emptying the kitchen sink, sweeping and mopping the floors are all crucial to keeping your home a bugless space. If you follow common sense and both physical and spatial cleanliness - you are bound to see the results and enjoy a pest-free environment! It is also important to keep in mind that a technician can only treat an area if it is clean and empty. The chemicals they use to eliminate the pests can damage cutlery, food & other household items if left exposed during treatment. Various bugs and critters especially like to hover around open food as well as dirty dishes and/or garbage. Maintaining a neat and clean-living area can be tedious, but with a small amount of effort, you will be ensuring a clean and healthy home.
Keep in mind that pests like to live in the comfort of our bedrooms & kitchens, but that certainly doesn’t mean we need to treat them like guests! A great tip is to get into the habit of a quick clean-up every morning and evening. It could take as little as 10 minutes to clean your kitchen or dining room and we promise it’s worth it. Having daily awareness of your surroundings and keeping cleanliness in mind will become a preventative measure well worth your time!
Knock, Knock: Are You Home?
A friendly professional face greets you, tote in hand and a belt with various tools to exterminate, wearing a suit – it’s the exterminator! The chemicals he has are to ensure radiation of pests. He walks into your office or home and assess the situation, letting you know what to expect in the service and treatment options. There are a few instances when a technician may walk into your space and acknowledge what is there, explaining he will need extra time or an additional technician to help him rectify the pests or vermin you are pestered with.
After the initial inspection, the technician will inform you – the customer – and us – the office – what he found present, allowing us to determine if the customer needs a preparation sheet in order to gain maximum service. With heavy infestations and winter nearing, it is important to notify a local extermination company and let them know what you see present, to begin eradicating the pests or vermin before the snow begins to fall at our toes.
