How to Get Rid of Cobwebs for Good

Wednesday, August 03, 2016

One of the unpleasant aspects of cleaning is finding spider webs in all nook and crannies of your home. The presence of this sticky substance represents two things:

a.      Your home is a sticky mess obviously
b.     There are spiders in your home (yikes!). if you are looking to get rid of the roaches in your home, spiders may be a welcome roommate as they eat those bugs right up. 

A lot of individuals would rather not have long-legged creatures running about in their homes. In that case,you are going to have to get rid of those webs

Some of us are not so bold as to go face to face with camps of spider webs, broom in hand, ready for battle. If you are one of those, there are other alternatives:

Use a vacuum cleaner
Your vacuum cleaner is not only to keep your Persian rug dust-free. You can use it to suck up the spider webs in all corners of your house. You can also use them on curtains if you see spider webs on them.

Use a duster
If you are not all about getting your face in the nest of spiders, you have to get a duster with long handles and just run them along the sides and corners of your home.

Preventing spiders from coming back.

Dust weekly
Don’t wait until the end of the month to get out your duster. By then, the spiders have already gotten pretty comfortable in your home. Dusting weekly will almost guarantee the absence of cobwebs and spiders in your home.

Use bleach and water
Mix equal amount of bleach and water in a spray can and spray the areas where you found  cobwebs. The mixture will get rid of any spider eggs that may still be in the web and prevent your home from having another sticky outbreak.

Use citrus.
Lucky for us, spiders taste with their legs (a little weird but okay) and dislike the smell of citrus so they won’t step anywhere with scents of lime and peppermint. Dab these flavors on a cotton ball and stick them in those open cracks in your home.  Or you could just use citrus based cleaning products. It would leave your home spider-free and fruity.

If you are not about to get anywhere near those spiders, book a tasker and we will help you get rid of them.
