How to clear pests this spring cleaning? With the onset of March, the on happy thought lingering everyone’s minds is the season of spring. It is my favourite time of the year when there is so much to look forward to in the season. The lawn collections, cricket matches, if you are a student then the few days of spring break!
While there is just so much to do, one of my favourite activities is spring cleaning. There is something so soothing about looking at a organised bookshelf or vanity that encourages you to be more productive in your daily routine.
But while spring cleaning brings so much joy, it is the time we discover pests who made their home in our closets and garages during the winters. Let us dwell into how we can make this spring cleaning season even more productive by deploying significant pest control measures.
Remember to clear out all the spaces. This includes your close fridge, basement, attic, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom! A useful tactic would be to divide the responsibility amidst members of the household. Remember you don’t have to do this in one day so be sure to adequately divide your time so you donot neglect any space. Let us at all the places individually:
Closets: The best part of our room may also be the most susceptible to pest damage. We store a ton of things in our closets, and much of it is no longer of our use. Try not to let moths, insects, or leeches establish colonies on your memorabilia. Following a Marie Kondo approach, if the item in your closet no longer sparks joy you are within your rights to dispose of it. Also, remember to dust out your closet and incorporate a method of organisation that cuts your time in half while you select your daily outfits.
Storage rooms: While clearing out your storage rooms, remember to discard or donate anything that has not been used for over a year. If you did not need the item in the entirety of last year, chances are you would need it this year as well.
Storage spaces also tend to be neglected over time lessening the chances you’ll notice an insect or rodent problem. If there are items in your storage room that are no longer needed and serve as an open space for pests, it is time to clean! Remember to thoroughly inspect for pest infestation or call upon professionals to do it for you. At American Fumigation, we offer free inspection services.

Kitchens: Wipe out your storerooms, refrigerator, and cupboards (not simple nourishment cupboards – ones that hold dishes, as well ). Remove all expired food items, empty boxes, and unused dishes gathering dust in your cupboards. While your cupboards and drawers are vacant, scrub them with a disinfectant and wipe storage shelves. Remember to immediately dispose off the garbage you have accumulated.
Bathrooms: An extremely normal spot for cockroaches, ants, centipedes and creepy crawlies to show up. In some cases, they may even climb up the drains! Routinely wipe down the majority of the washroom’s surfaces, and guarantee that there is no dampness pooling in any zones, for example, behind the tubs or by the bath to prevent algae or fungus from appearing in the bathrooms.
–Remove items that do not belong in the room!
We tend to accumulate most of our daily junk close to our living space. It is therefore pertinent to remove all the junk from our bedroom that we do not need in our day to day lives. Be sure to avoid hoarding any unnecessary items that take up space and serve as probable adobe for pests.
–Remove the drapes or curtains!
Curtains and drapes accumulate the most amount of dust and require a thorough was and clean.
Remember to vacuum under the furniture, remove dust from behind hanging pictures, and to remove dust from your fans.
