Cockroach Control in Singapore
Cockroaches are hard to kill as they possess extremely strong yet flexible exoskeletons. They can endure a powerful stomp or a hit with your bedroom slippers. To make matters worse, cockroaches are nocturnal insects and are active mostly at night. If you see cockroaches during the day, it may mean that you are facing a potentially significant infestation. A cockroach infestation can be a nightmare for every homeowner and business.
Apart from being a nuisance, cockroaches are damaging in many ways. They transmit a range of dangerous diseases including E. coli, Salmonella, Typhoid Fever and Dysentery. Cockroaches are a health hazard in both residential and commercial spaces. Not only are cockroaches able to trigger allergy and asthma symptoms, but they can also contaminate food and cause serious food poisoning. Therefore, it is extremely important, especially for food-handling businesses, to adopt an effective cockroach control and prevention programme in Singapore.

The Life Cycle of Cockroaches
A cockroach egg case contains 10 to 50 eggs, which explains why a cockroach infestation grows rapidly. Generally, it takes 2 to 7 weeks for the egg to hatch.
The nymph molts several times and grows every time they shed their skin.
The cockroach can start reproducing at this stage and start to infest your property.

How often should we disinfect a place?Regular cleaning helps to reduce pathogens including bacteria, viruses and fungi on commonly-shared surfaces. This helps to reduce the risk of transmission from surfaces including keyboards, door knobs and switches. Therefore, it is recommended to carry out cleaning daily to get rid of contaminants that may land on the surfaces. Besides cleaning, you may consider a professional sanitisation and disinfection misting treatment to thoroughly cleanse your property. This may be done as one-off service or regularly based on your needs.
How do i disinfect a house with COVID-19 exposure?Household bleach and alcohol (70% to 90%) can be used for surface disinfection. You should first wipe down the surfaces with water and detergent to remove any traces of dirt before carrying out the disinfection. In addition to surface disinfection, a professionally-conducted disinfection misting service can help to get rid of viruses lingering in the air. This treatment is suitable to be carried out not only for residential homes but also ideal for businesses with COVID-19 exposure.
What is the price of a professional disinfection service?The cost of disinfection services may vary depending on several factors such as the scope of work, size of your property and frequency of treatment. It may also cost more to disinfect premises with confirmed COVID-19 cases as there are more prerequisites to the service including the need to don full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to carry out the service.
