How to Prevent Cockroaches

Free food at your house!
As a maid company, we sometimes come across some of the most filthy homes and offices. Roaches are often a factor to these places, especially out here in Santa Monica. It's important to know what roaches are attracted to, to best prevent the infestation of your home or workplace. Cockroaches are attracted to water, food, and warmth. Give them a warm home with water, and you've just opened the newest roach hotspot. The number one factor in preventing roaches from entering your home is to keep it clean. Simply put, if they don't have easy access to food and water, then they will have no interest in your home.

Below is a list of tips which can help your home stay roach free:

  • Keep your house clean and dry
  • Empty your garbage regularly
  • Avoid keeping smelly trash in the house
  • Make sure your outdoor garbage bin is not directly touching your house
  • Rinse recyclables because residual liquid and food bits inside can attract roaches
  • Dispose of recyclables similarly to trash
  • Keep pantry foods sealed
  • Use boric acid. Very light amounts can help deter roaches, especially near cracks and under home utilities
