Pests such as rodents, cockroaches, mosquitoes, flies, termites, silverfish, bed bugs and other insects are not only eyesores, they can also pose as health hazards and can even damage your property and belongings. Because of this, it would be wise for you to call experts in pest control in Sydney the moment you experience itchiness or see bug bites whenever you use your furniture or find obvious signs of pest presence in your house. After the process was successfully conducted, consider doing the following things to ensure a safer home environment.
Wash clothing materials
If you were inside the house during the extermination process, it would be best to change your clothes along with other clothing materials that may have been exposed to pest chemicals. Wash your clothing, pillows, curtains, bed sheets and similar materials no matter how safe the solutions used may be.
Clean/wipe your furniture
Pest solutions used on the process can permeate the air through vapour and could settle on your furniture especially the upholstered type. Steam-dry your furniture to disinfect them after the pest control in Sydney was conducted. For leathered materials, consider wiping them with damp washcloth for cleaning. Another way to remove chemical residue on your furniture is to take them outside and leave them out in the sun for a few hours.
Carpets are some of the most susceptible items around the house in terms of absorbing chemicals from pest control activity because of their fuzziness. Fumes and chemical residue are absorbed by carpets through its lint. Dry wash your carpets after the process to disinfect the materials. In addition, fuzzy stuffed toys and children’s toys in general should be kept during the pest control process.
Mop the floor

This will also eliminate the stench or foul odour caused by dead pests or from the chemicals used on the extermination process. Make sure to wipe or mop your floor dry after cleaning it.
