Preparing your home for cockroach extermination services before our arrival is crucial for the effectiveness of the treatment and the safety of your family. By taking specific steps, you can ensure a smooth and successful pest management process.


1. Clear Access Points

Ensure that all areas of your home, especially those where cockroaches are most prevalent, are easily accessible. Move furniture away from walls, organize clutter, and provide clear paths so that pest control professionals can reach every corner.

2. Kitchen Preparation

The kitchen is often the primary battleground in the fight against cockroaches. Empty all trash bins, clean the floors and surfaces to remove food particles and store food in sealed containers. If possible, move appliances away from the walls to expose hiding spots.

3. Bathroom Cleanup

Cockroaches thrive in damp environments, making your bathroom another critical area to prepare. Fix any leaks, wipe down surfaces, and store personal care products in cabinets.

4. Personal Items and Furniture

Protect your clothing, bedding, and other personal items by covering them or placing them in sealed bags. This step is especially important as this particular pest control involves spraying insecticides.

5. Pet Safety

For the safety of your pets, arrange for them to stay somewhere else during the treatment. Even though we use eco and pet-friendly products, it’s always better to play it safe. If that’s not possible, ensure they are kept in a secure area where they won’t come into contact with chemicals.

6. Provide Access to Your Home

If you cannot be home during the service, arrange for someone to provide access to your home. It’s better if you are home to show us around and point out problem areas.

Pre-Treatment Actions

In addition to the specific preparations mentioned, general cleaning and decluttering can significantly contribute to the effectiveness of the pest control service. Vacuum regularly, dispose of garbage properly, and reduce clutter to minimize cockroach hiding spots.

Post-Treatment Care

After the cockroach treatment, follow the professionals’ instructions for cleaning and maintenance. This may include airing out the property, cleaning up dead cockroaches, and avoiding certain areas until it’s safe.

Regular Maintenance

To prevent future infestations, seal entry points, maintain a clean home, and schedule regular pest control services. Awareness and prevention are key to keeping your home cockroach-free.
