Spring Cleaning Your Home Can Keep It Pest-Free

Spring cleaning can do more for your house than just make it look presentable. It can also keep your home pest-free! Keep reading to find out why pests are less likely to invade a clean home.

The Kitchen

A messy kitchen that has leftover food on the countertop will only entice pests such as ants, house flies and cockroaches to chow down. To prevent this from happening, remember to store food in airtight containers. It is also a good idea to take your garbage out frequently because pests will even eat food scraps in the trash.


Bed bugs tend to congregate in bedrooms–hence the name! Having clean sheets on your bed will make it that much easier to spot these unwanted critters. Remember to clean the other pieces of furniture in your bedroom as well, since bed bugs could be hiding there too.

Attics & Basements

Pests such as termites and cockroaches are attracted to moisture sites. Unfortunately, attics and basements are particularly susceptible to moisture buildup. To keep termites and cockroaches at bay, be sure to get rid of moisture sites in these two areas of the home.
