The lack of Preparation and/or Sanitation can cause continued infestation throughout the entire structure.  Follow through keeps your home or business protected against reoccurring infestations.

  • Cover and store any open food. Wash and put away dishes left in the sink.
  • Remove all foods, small appliances, and other small items from countertops. (Be sure to check small kitchen appliances (ex, toasters, microwaves, etc.) for signs of cockroach infestation, then take time to clean them.
  • Mop/scrub kitchen and other hard floors and woodwork with detergent. Thoroughly vacuum carpeted floors. After vacuuming, take the vacuum cleaner outside, remove the vacuum bag, seal it, and discard in trash. Take a damp cloth and wipe down the entire vacuum cleaner.
  • Discard all excess paper products and any other piles of trash, as these will provide harborage areas for roaches and other pests.
  • Always keep garbage in closed containers and take out the garbage every night.
  • Repair any water leaks immediately upon detection. Damp, wet areas are attractive to cockroaches.
  • Store and/or cover baby toys, supplies, crib mattress, changing table, etc.
  • Prepare birds and reptiles to evacuate the premises. (avg time about 6-8hours)
