As the collection of dust & clutter becomes more noticeable in a place of living, this usually is a signal that the duster, cleaning gloves, a mop bucket, and some good ol’ elbow grease may be next on your to-do list. And by doing so you will not only be getting rid of clutter & dust…but maybe a few pests.
Pests feel comfortable in homes with the floor space diminished by furniture, appliances, boxes, etc. The items provide plenty of covering & hiding places for the pesky critters. So why not eliminate places for pests & rodents to nest in your home with a thorough cleaning.
Kill two birds with one stone: One, your place is rejuvenated to a more inspiring & habitable living space. Two, pests will have a hard time surviving by taking away their living space & cleaning thoroughly. And you are actually implementing effective pest control techniques in your home…Yup, pest control isn’t all about pesticides & rodent traps. Taking these actions will help resolve a lot of your pest problems.
Other tips to keep pests at bay include vacuuming carpets to pick up hidden crumbs & throwing out expired foods to remove food sources for insects & rodents. And once a year do a “spring cleaning” by cleaning behind and underneath furniture & appliances.
While heavy pest infestations may need to be handled by a professional pest control company, a little feng shui can provide you with a clean home, a happy family, & pest-free environment.
