With the end of winter quickly approaching, many homeowners are beginning to plan their spring cleaning strategy. By investing the time in cleaning your home, you can make it less appealing to a wide variety of pests that may begin to emerge as the weather changes. If you want to protect your home and limit the chances of pest infestation as the weather begins to warm, spring cleaning is absolutely necessary.
Keep Up With Chores
Improper sanitation is one of the quickest ways to invite pests inside of your home. To ensure they don’t have the food sources and shelter needed to sustain life, it is important to keep up with daily chores, such as taking out the trash, wiping down countertops and cleaning any dirty dishes. Having a regular schedule for vacuuming can also rid your rooms of any dust, debris or pests that may have already found their way in.
Seal Cracks Leading Indoors
During the winter there is a possibility that your door frames, window frames, and other common entry points into your home may have been affected. As these items and your foundation are exposed to the cold they may warp or shift that leads to new cracks that previously weren’t there. It is important to seal these cracks and crevices to limit the chances of pests entering.
Lock Up Food Containers
Your pantry is a prime location for pests because of the wide variety of foods that are easily accessible. In most cases, pests will be able to chew through the cardboard boxes and plastic bags that most common pantry items come in, leading to contamination and damaged goods. To remedy this, place all of your foods in air-tight containers that won’t be easily infiltrated by pests that make their way indoors.
