Pests and fungi can be a source of disease transmission for residents. For that, do some activities such as pest control to prevent or repel pests and fungi from our homes.
First is cleaning the floor regularly. This can be done by sweeping and mopping at least once a day. Having a vacuum cleaner will be more helpful, especially for cleaning dust on carpets. When mopping floors, don’t forget to use a disinfectant, such as carbolic acid. Thus, the floor becomes more hygienic.
Second, consider the walls of the house. Walls that are often exposed to rainwater or close to water sources are usually damp. This condition triggers the growth of fungus. The solution that is often done is to repaint. However, when repainting it is best to use a waterproof coating or weatherproof paint.
Third, drywalls also need to be cleaned so they don’t invite germs. You do this by wiping with soapy water mixed with disinfectant liquid. This step is also cost-effective. If there are stains, they can be cleaned with a soft-bristled brush.
Fourth, after floors and walls, the next activity is checking the condition of the ceiling and roof. If there is a leak in the tile area that causes water to flow into the house, this could be an entry point for pests.
Fifth, apart from termites, rodents can enter through the roof tiles and build nests behind the ceiling. For that, immediately repair the leaking tile, and don’t forget to cover it with a leak-proof coating. If the tile breaks, replace it immediately with a new one.
Sixth, cleaning the yard or terrace must also be included in the routine list. Grass, which is allowed to grow wild, can be an ideal home for pests. Also, cans, bottles, or used containers that can hold rainwater can become mosquito breeding grounds.
