Best Ways to Control Cockroaches In Your Home

The cockroach population in Sydney has an interesting lineage with German, American, Australian and native species of cockroaches residing amicably.Warm and humid places such as kitchens, bathrooms, and cupboards are the favorite hide-outs for cockroaches. They also inhabit places where food is aplenty, like under fridges, toasters etc.


Cockroaches are not choosy when it comes to what they eat, but they have a distinct liking for starchy foods. Pests tend to flock to areas where they can have easy access to food or where there is garbage. Your pet’s food bowls are an open invitation to cockroaches as well. So how can you rid your home of these pests? Here are some tips from the experts at Fair Dinkum:


Cockroach Baits And Traps


A simple way to effectively get rid of cockroaches is to use cockroach traps and baits. A single bait is often sufficient to attract the cockroaches. The breeding cycle of cockroaches is broken as the bait kills them.


Cockroach Bombs


It is not always easy to track down a cockroach infestation or their nests. Bug bombs are useful and you can use these as a preventive measure in areas that are presently cockroach-free. Here are a few things to remember about these bombs:


  • Read instructions about their use and precautions
  • Their residue lingers for 3 months
  • People allergic to chemicals and fragrances should avoid using bug bombs
  • It is important to cover children’s toys when these bombs are used in the home


Cockroach sprays are fast-acting and you can use cockroach repellents around all the entry points into your home to repel these pests. If none of these methods work, it’s best to call in professionals like us to handle cockroach control for you.

Different Types Of Professional Carpet Cleaning Methods

Carpet cleaning is a crucial aspect of maintaining these features. But every carpet is different and needs different care. Professional carpet cleaners examine the material and fibre of carpets before deciding which cleaning methods and cleaning agentsto use. Somematerials are easy to clean while others can be more tedious and time-consuming.

When the dust and debris are removed from the carpets on a regular basis, it saves your carpets from damage.  Cleaning experts like us at Fair Dinkum ensure that your carpets are cleaned thoroughly to prevent damage.



In vacuuming,only the surfaces of the carpet surface get cleaned.But it has certain advantages such as:


  • It is an affordable solution
  • You can clean your own carpet with a vacuum cleaner


Unfortunately, you can’s remove all dirt and dust with just vacuuming. Our professional cleaners remove the dust and debris more efficiently with their high powered vacuuming equipment and cleaning methods. They ensure that your carpet gets a deep clean.

Chemical cleaning


Chemical cleaning is also called dry cleaning or low moisture cleaning. It is a carpet washing method in which chemicals are used rather than simple vacuuming. The process is pricieras it involves:


  • More time and effort
  • Cost of chemical solutions

Steam Cleaning


The steam cleaning method uses steam as a powerful agent to clean carpets. Its benefits are to:


  • Effectively remove of dust and debris from the surface and the deep fibres
  • Deodorise by removing odours and musty smells
  • Sanitise by killing germs


We provide customised carpet cleaning services at very cost-effective pricing.
