Kids find plenty of ways to get dirty on their own, they don’t need to live in a home filled with filth and clutter. A healthy, safe home is one factor in creating happy, well-rounded children. Vance Hardinger, owner of Pest Control Las Vegas, says “With just a few ways to make a house more safe and healthy for kids, little ones can be free to play, explore, and be themselves in a secure environment”.

Hire A Pest Control Pro

Pests carry countless germs and different diseases. Allowing them to remain in the home will only spell disaster. A messy home can easily attract pests, making it necessary to keep a clean house that leaves nothing out for insects or rodents to get their mouths on. Parents don’t have to wait until bugs are seen to call pest control. Call a company specializing in pest control in Raleigh or in an area near you, to learn about preventative measures that will keep pests at bay.

Get the Ducts Cleaned

Dust particles in the air spread easily, which children breathe in. This can actually cause symptoms of asthma to be exacerbated, making kids cough, wheeze, and have a difficult time breathing. It’s important to have the air ducts in your home cleaned regularly to ensure healthy air quality. It will help keep asthma symptoms at bay and avoid other illnesses brought on by poor air quality.

Declutter your Home

Especially when a new baby arrives in the home, more and more items take up space in the residence. From swings to diaper pails, clothes to toys, the place can quickly become overrun with baby gear. As children grow, this doesn’t change. Their toys and socks only seem to accumulate more, along with school papers, art projects, soccer trophies, and more. This makes it necessary to declutter the home often and find a way to downsize on belongings. Go through and see which items have been used in the last month or two. If they have been used, they obviously need to be kept. If they haven’t, there really may no longer be any use for them. They should either get thrown out, donated, or put into storage where they are not taking up space.

Involve Children in Chores

Kids need to learn the importance of cleaning, and that doesn’t mean watching mom or dad do all the work. It’s best to involve children in chores, as long as they’re age appropriate. It will help them get used to handling the tasks and perhaps even allow them to see some joy in doing it. Start them out at an early age by buying them the toy cleaning sets found in stores. Toy vacuums, brooms, dishes, and cleaning products are all available to get kids interested. There are shorter-handled brooms available that kids can start to use to help sweep, and a stool comes in handy so they can stand at the sink and reach the dishes. Mom can wash while the kiddo dries to make for some healthy bonding time.

A healthy, safe, happy home is created when parents do all they can to keep it that way. By engaging children in chores, decluttering the home often, getting the ducts cleaned, and hiring pest control, parents can keep the house clean and healthy for the children and themselves. Some stress stems from a cluttered mess of a house, so keeping things clean can make the entire family feel more at ease.


  1. Good morning everyone.

    I have problems with cockroaches at home and I do not know what to do, because I read in the forums and there are so many remedies that one does not trust anything.

    My problem only comes from the bedroom, since 95% of them appear there.

    I live in an interior apartment on the 1st floor that overlooks an interior courtyard and the bedroom window overlooks that courtyard.

    Since we bought the house, 3 years ago, in summer, only in summer with the heat we have the same problem and we spend the summer in a daze and impotent with this problem.

    The ones that appear to me are big and dark, I don’t know what kind exactly.

    They appear one or two, and we believe that they enter through the hole of the box of the blind, since we never open the window because of this problem.

    It is also curious because they almost always appear in the same corner of the room.

    Last year I sealed the box of the blind and I fixed the built-in closet that we have since it had a double bottom and some of them came from there…and since I did that they stopped appearing.

    Well, since the heat has begun to come back….ya of the closet we are almost sure that they do not come since we did a work and we put plaster, but it gives me that comes from the box of the blind and I feel helpless as they appear in the room where we sleep and it is traumatic to the point that sometimes we have left home to sleep outside or in another room we have.

    We have ordered a mosquito net and we are planning to remove the shutter box and the shutter and leave the window without the shutter and cover all the hole of the shutter and the cord of the shutter.

    I tell this more than anything to know opinions of people that something similar happens to him, since the solutions that I see here do not convince me (sprays, ultrasound and home remedies) that kill them, but what I want is to prevent them from entering.

    Greetings to all and thanks for reading everything I have just posted.
