During these testing times of COVID-19, hygiene is one of the heavily-discussed topics in our families. Suddenly, we find ourselves using soaps, disinfectants, hand washes and sanitizers more frequently than we would have ever imagined. Children remain at home as their online schools are in progress, while offices are also shut, encouraging employees to work from home.
It is not wrong to say that COVID-19 has brought families together. We have all started to spend a lot of quality time with each other, which is a good thing, indeed! However, we have to take care of an important point here. While we take good care of our personal hygiene to protect ourselves from the virus, do we give the same importance to our home hygiene as well?
If you haven’t thought about keeping your homes protected from pests and bacteria, here are some of the top reasons, which will compel you to do so.
- Keep your homes free from bacteria
Getting pest control services at regular intervals is very important, especially during COVID. This is because we don’t want the disease-causing pathogens to enter our homes and infect us. Regular pest control can help you control mosquitoes from entering your homes. Mosquitoes carry diseases such as dengue and malaria, as a result of which, it is very important to keep your homes safe from them.
Professional pest control companies will check the area in and around your homes to see if there is any water accumulation, open drains, waste bins and manholes in the neighborhood. Mosquitoes enter your homes through these sources. Thanks to regular pest control services, you can control the entry of mosquitoes by using mosquito traps, fogging and larviciding techniques.
- Getting rid of not-so-obvious pests
Sometimes, you may face a threat from the most unsuspecting corner of your home. Some pests don’t leave any signs of their presence, but they slowly bite into your belongings, without you knowing anything about it. Termites are great examples of such pests. These termites bite into your wood gradually, and they completely destroy your belongings.
During the times of COVID-19 when all of us work from our homes, it is only natural that we should keep such miscreants at bay. You must take up professional termite control services to keep your homes and belongings safe from these messy pests. Making a protective layer across the borders of your home is a great idea to stop termites from entering inside.
- Controlling infestation from rats
One of the most important reasons why pest control is important, especially during COVID-19, is to keep rats away. Rats have this irritating habit of gnawing at whatever they can grab. When working from home, you are sure to leave some wires and adapters lying around all day long. Rats, usually active at night, can chew these wires and electrical gadgets lying around. This may lead to short circuit issues, and even fire accidents in your home.
Also, rats are carriers of serious diseases like Salmonella, Leptospirosis and Hantavirus. They can contaminate your food and water, causing you to fall sick. Sometimes, when rats get trapped in the holes or crevices behind the walls, they die there, forcing you to stay in a foul-smelling house. To keep all these problems at bay, it is important to get pest control services frequently to seal all the holes, and other areas that rats use to gain entry into your homes.
- Keeping flies away
If you are running a business, such as a restaurant, you must have opened your establishment to customers recently, based on your respective countries’ lockdown rules. When you reopen after the nation-wide lockdown, you want to ensure that your restaurant follows all the hygiene norms perfectly.
It doesn’t augur well for your business’s financial and health aspect when you have flies everywhere in your restaurant. In times of a pandemic like this, people are quite particular about hygiene. Flies are the carriers of many diseases, as they can cause food contamination. So, when they spot too many flies and other insects in your business, they may stop coming to your place to eat.
The best way to develop your business, in this case, is to get the services of a professional pest control service provider to use fly-trap technology, and other techniques to get rid of infestations from flies.
You should regularly use pest control Vancouver services to keep pest infestations at bay from your residential or commercial building. The experts can spot early infestation symptoms and implement corrective measures in place before the issue gets out of hand. They also conduct regular checks on your premises to monitor the infestations, so that you don’t have any regrets later.
In short, pest control and hygiene management should be in sync with each other, so that you can stay away from pests, viruses and bacteria as much as possible.
