Tuesday Tips: Vacuum Regularly for a Pest-Free Home

Welcome back to our Tuesday Tips series! This week, we're focusing on a simple yet effective way to keep pests at bay: regular vacuuming. Here's how vacuuming can help you maintain a cleaner, pest-free home:

Why Vacuuming Matters

Vacuuming isn't just about keeping your floors clean; it's also a crucial step in pest control. Many pests, including fleas, spiders, and ants, can find refuge in your carpets, rugs, and upholstery. Regular vacuuming helps remove these pests and their eggs, reducing the likelihood of infestations.

Tips for Effective Vacuuming:

  • Frequency: Vacuum at least once a week, or more often in high-traffic areas and if you have pets.

  • Attachments: Use crevice tools and brush attachments to reach corners, baseboards, and under furniture, where pests are likely to hide.

  • Empty the Bag or Canister: Always empty the vacuum bag or canister immediately after use to prevent pests from escaping back into your home.

  • Focus on Pet Areas: Pay special attention to areas where your pets spend a lot of time, as these are common hotspots for fleas.

While vacuuming is a great start, it's not always enough to eliminate pests completely. For persistent or severe infestations, professional pest control services may be necessary. Paragon Pest Control offers expert solutions to keep your home free from unwanted guests.
