Maybe you’re struggling with a pest infestation or just don’t have the time or energy to deal with all the cleaning. In this blog post, we’re going to provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to clean your house after a pest spray. From dusting and vacuuming to mopping and sweeping, we’ll cover it all so that you can finally relax and enjoy your home again.
Wipe Floors, Walls, and Windows
Housecleaning can be tricky after a pest spray. Wipe down walls, floors, and windows with a damp cloth to remove any residual pesticide. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area.
Throw Away Uncovered Food
If you have had a pest spray done in your home, now is a good time to clean up. Here are some tips on how to do so:
1. Cut off the power to the area: If there has been an infestation, the bugs may still be around and active. Turning off the power will help make sure that any remaining pests will be eliminated.
2. Remove all furniture and items from the room: Anything that could conceivably be used by pests (like particle board furniture) should be removed. This will reduce the amount of surface area for bugs to crawl on, and it will also make cleanup easier.
3. Vacuum or sweep everything: Once all furniture and other items have been removed, vacuum or sweep everything floors and walls including baseboards, crevices, behind pictures, etc. This will remove any debris or bugs that were missed when cleaning up furniture and items.
4. Get rid of any excess water: Make sure all areas where water was used (to spray bugs or clean surfaces) are dried before leaving them alone for long periods of time. This includes doors, windowsills, under cabinets, around plumbing fixtures and anywhere else water was spilled or used during the cleanup process. Droplets left behind by pests can contain eggs which can hatch into new bugs if not cleaned up promptly
How Can We Help You?
Cleaning your home after a pest spray is both important and time-consuming. Follow these tips to make the process as easy as possible:
1. Immediately isolate any areas that are sprayed. Close all windows and doors to prevent pests from entering the house, and turn on all fans to help circulate the air.
2. Remove any loose objects that could become projectiles when sprayed with pesticides, such as curtains or furniture.
3. Wet down all surfaces that will be touched by water, including walls, floors, and ceilings. This will help distribute the pesticide evenly and prevent it from staining surfaces or carpets.
4. Fill a bucket with warm water and dish soap, and soak items that need cleaning for at least 10 minutes. Scrub surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in the soapy water mixture, then rinse thoroughly with clean water. Repeat if necessary.
