Ever wonder where that little fly with the big black wings came from? Or how those cockroaches keep getting in the house? Well you can quit blaming the grocery bags because the most likely source is your home’s plumbing system.
The source of those two insects in particular is usually a dry trap or a hole in the plumbing waste and vent system somewhere.
Think about unused fixtures like sinks or tubs. Sometimes a floor drain in the basement might be dried out from lack of use. Or a toilet might have a broken seal.
Sometimes roaches will hide and breed inside fixtures once they have gotten in and after the dry trap has been refilled with water.
You know that little overflow hole in the bathroom sink? The one you see when you look in the mirror? Roaches love that place because it is a good source of water. They always go for a place with water and that’s why they are usually found in kitchens and bathrooms.
We’ll leave pest control to the experts. But they are useful only after the source of the opening that’s allowing them into your home has been located.
Yes! Plumbing has just the trick to source that location. We can perform a non-toxic smoke test on your home which will help to locate the exact place(s) through which those pesky critters are coming into your home.
