Any cockroach would love to hang out in your kitchen. After all, it’s where they can find all that they need to survive. However, the last thing any homeowner would want is to see roaches lurking in the corners of their kitchens. In fact, the sight of roaches compels most people to enlist the help of a roach control West Palm Beach professional.
Be sure to have your sink and kitchen counters wiped down regularly to remove all traces of food on them. Don’t forget to clean the small kitchen appliances that collect crumbs including your toasters and microwaves. In addition, make sure that your food is stored in airtight containers. Since roaches are nocturnal creatures, avoid leaving dirty dishes in the sink overnight. Also, be sure to have garbage bins tightly sealed and take out your trash regularly.
Fix leaky faucets and make sure that there’s no excess moisture beneath the sink. Use caulk or other sealants to seal holes that are in and around the pipes. Moreover, don’t let food particles build up in the drain. When you clean out drains, use a drain cleaner. To keep roaches at bay, use a drain cover.
Roaches have flat bodies that make it easy for them to get inside your home through very small spaces. It’s best to make a thorough inspection around your kitchen to check for holes, gaps, and cracks that could potentially become portals of entry for these pests. It’s also a good idea to add weather stripping around doors and seal the areas around windows to keep the roaches from entering your home.
