Pest Control & Home Cleaning Before Diwali

Diwali is round the corner. We have often seen people getting Pest Control & Home Cleaning before every Diwali. We sometimes wonder why?

In India People visit each other’s homes during this festive season. No one would prefer to go to a neighbour’s house full of spiders or a house filled with bed bugs. There is nothing scarier than getting into the rest room that has a cockroach or a lizard staring at you. Imagine you are sitting on a sofa at your friend’s house and you have a feeling that a mouse has just crossed over your foot and is hiding right beneath the sofa. You can’t even sip the tea peacefully and interact normally. Or imagine when you are walking through you hear a creaky sound from the wooden floor which had been half chewed by the termites. But still we haven’t found strong logic why always before Diwali and not other festivals.

This was a very scientific way of pest control because the cow dung has bacteriophage a virus that infects and replicates within a bacterium. FAO and many other reputed global institutions have recognized the ancient Indian practice. Search on Google and Wikipedia and you will find ample proof.

How to go about Pest Control?

Pest Control makes sure all the germs and infestation that monsoons brought with them get eradicated. Cleaning along with painting and polishing ensure that there are no cracks and crevices left on the wall and furniture to allow them to breed, harbor and multiply further.

1. What If only cleaning is done and Pest Control Services left?

Effective Pest Control requires lots of trained mind, experience and resources to tackle them. As you know pests also have brains and they are clever and smart. You may clean physical dirt but pests will immediately get into hiding in cracks and crevices. And the next day, you will again find their droppings, hairs, grease marks etc. So, just cleaning and avoiding Pest Control would be a big mistake.

2. What if Pest Control is done but Cleaning not done?

A professional cleaning includes removal of not just dust particles but cleaning of grease and slime material, food residues, pest droppings, clogged drainage etc. It is important that pest do not find their food and water. A clean house is actually a hostile condition for pests. Nobody whether human or pest wants to arrive as guest to a hostile environment.
