As inevitable as it is, that time of the year is back. As we find ourselves entering our homes in mud and snow-covered boots, digging into dusty storage boxes for decorations as well as bringing in new decorations from outside, and accepting that winter is here. We are already facing cold season, and as the warmth retreats, we spend more of our days inside. This may mean more mess, a more "lived-in" environment, and perhaps kiddos running around trying to tear the house apart as fast as you put it back together. Home health isn't just a chore, but a whole list of chores that can really take it out of you. With all these things combined, the last thing we want to is to worry about is if our home is pest-free, and what kind of diseases and potential catastrophes pests may bring along with them when they arrive.
Keeping our homes as clean as possible helps, even if it seems a never-ending battle. Here are a few things to consider to keep our homes healthy and hopefully free of pests:
Make sure that countertops are wiped down of food remnants
Always rotate dried goods and processed foods
Inspect attics and basements for potential points of entry for pests
Try and keep moisture levels low by checking for any potential leaks in pipes or walls
Always check over anything that you are bringing in from outside including groceries
Inspect any decorations prior to removing them from storage
Inspect all indoor and outdoor pets periodically
This is a lot to be sure, but the benefits are worth it. Fewer colds, money saved in not having to throw away expired foods, and hopefully no pests undermining all of our good housekeeping.
