If you’re about to vacate your rental property, you can find out about All Corners affordable and thorough end of lease pest control treatments Brisbane here.

According to the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA), if the rental property was pest-free when you started living there, you must ensure it meets the same standard when you depart.

If you need to rid the property of pests to ensure you’re eligible to get your bond back, speak to the professional team at All Corners Carpet Cleaning and Pest Control.

Learn more below or book in your pest treatment now by calling 0439 722 914.

End of Lease Pest Treatment

No one wants to walk into a new home that’s crawling with vermin or covered in filth. Plus, you may need to get a pest treatment to ensure you get your bond back.

At All Corners Carpet Cleaning and Pest Control, we use the latest in pest control techniques and treatments to rid your home of those unwanted guests.

Typically, our end of lease treatments target fleas and cockroaches.

But if you’ve had other pests settle in and call the property home, we can get rid of those as well.

Not sure if a professional pest treatment is required to hand your keys back? It’s best to check with your real estate agent and rental agreement.

Requirements for Vacating Your Rental Property

When it comes to pest treatments AND carpet cleaning, the RTA says: “At the end of a tenancy the tenant must leave the property in the same condition it was in at the start of the tenancy, apart from fair wear and tear.”

We find many of our customers make the most of our combined services discount and have both carpet cleaning and a pest treatment done at the same time.

Typically, our clients who utilise the combined job discount save anywhere from $55-$77, depending on how many rooms are being cleaned.

Some people also request tile and grout cleaning when vacating a property, too. This is another great service we offer and saves you a lot of stress and hard yakka getting the flooring looking the goods again.

Common household bugs Australia

Common Household Bugs Australia

We’ve got our fair share of common household bugs in Australia, but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with them inhabiting your home.

In this blog, we reveal the 5 creepy crawlies we see most often in our travels completing pest and termite inspections during the hot Summer months across Brisbane’s northside, including:

  • Cockroaches
  • Fleas
  • Termites
  • Ants
  • Spiders

We also discuss the issues these bugs can cause, and the treatment options the qualified team at All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control can help with.

5 Common Household Bugs Australia

The heat and the moisture in Summer creates the perfect breeding conditions for many household bugs.

1. Cockroaches

Cockies creep into our homes looking for food and a place to breed. In doing so they spread germs and can even cause damage to electrical appliances.

There are 5 main species of cockroaches that we find infesting homes in South East Queensland, including:

  • German Cockroach
  • American Cockroach
  • Australian Cockroach
  • Brown-banded cockroach
  • Oriental Cockroach

Pest Treatment for Cockroaches

We use the latest techniques, including a combination of gel and spray treatments, to get rid of creepy crawlies, and target cockroaches in our full pest control treatment. Find out more here.

2. Fleas

Fleas find a host (often our beloved fur babies) and feast on their blood, before jumping onto other animals – and even people – to satiate their appetite.

A flea bite can be unpleasant and cause swelling and itchiness.

Pest Treatment for Fleas

Usually, we treat fleas with a full internal covering spray, as well as an external yard spray. We can also add in insect growth regulators if need be.

You can also take preventative measures to keep fleas away.

They include:

  • Frequently washing your animal’s bedding (and yours if they jump up for a snuggle in the night)
  • Regular vacuuming (and professional carpet cleaning annually), and
  • Carrying out flea programs from your vet.

3. Termites

Termites might be tiny, but they can cause expensive structural damage in just 3 months of an attack. Not only is this a frustrating experience, but it can be very expensive and lead to a costly repair bill.

Pest Treatment for Termites

Homeowners should have their properties inspected for termites at least every 12 months.

There are a range of ways to treat termites, and treatment does differ depending on the termite species.

At All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control, we will offer advice about the best treatment and management for your situation.

4. Ants

Ants are annoying – there’s no denying it! We commonly find them in Brisbane kitchens and bathrooms looking for food and water.

The nest in dark places, including switch boards and electrical appliances, which can potentially cause damage.

Pest Treatment for Ants

Our experienced technicians target ants and their nests during our full pest control treatments.

To learn more about our pest control packages, click here.

5. Spiders

Scared of spiders? We’ve got plenty arachnids in the sunshine state.

In disturbed urban areas the biggest concern is the presence of venomous species like redbacks and white-tail spiders.

According to the Australian Museum, the female redback has a dangerous bite that can cause serious illness and even death.

If you believe you’ve been bitten by a redback, it’s important to seek medical attention.

The Australian Museum says white-tail spider bites can cause burning as well as itchiness and swelling.

Pest Treatment for Spiders

In our full pest control treatment, we target ants, cockroaches, silverfish and spiders.

Outdoors we concentrate on all the nooks and crannies of your home, with a full crack and crevasse treatment. We also ensure garden sheds and play equipment are not overlooked!

Inside, we carry out an internal spray on cornices and skirting, as well as roof voids, if needed.

Pest Control And Carpet Cleaning North Lakes

Our family-owned business operates across the northside of Brisbane including North Lakes, up to Caboolture and beyond.

We’ve got many valued clients in the suburb and every September one of them, named Michael, has pest control and carpet cleaning carried out at both his home and rental property.

Michal has young children and likes to freshen up the carpets after winter to help remove allergens that may have built up over that time.

This year we also uncovered a few problems with rodents as well as large cockroaches.

We organised a baiting program to tackle the rodents, and then targeted the high-profile areas for cockroaches including under the dishwasher, fridge and sinks.

Michael has been impressed with our services for many years which is why his family added their rental property on to our service list.

We have our carpets and pest control done every year through All Corners, and they always do a sensational job. This is the only place that I can say will eliminate pests completely. They are also friendly and easy to deal with.

silverfish

Where Do Silverfish Come From?

Have you ever wondered where do silverfish come from? 

The team at All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control has put together this blog with some useful information about the pests, including signs you might have an infestation.  

Silverfish thrive in dark and humid areas, and are often found in roof voids and at the back of cupboards. This is just one reason why they can be hard to detect in your home.  

Unfortunately, they can strike year-round in Queensland, and can infest any property in the state’s south-east.  

Think you might have silverfish in your home? Keep reading.  

Silverfish Infestation Signs  

  1. Holes in your clothes or paper damage:  Silverfish like to feed on starch products such as book bindings, photographs and fabrics.  So, if you notice holes in your clothes, or your stored photographs have been chewed, this can be an indicator of a silverfish infestation. 
  2. You’ve spotted a small grey creature: They are usually about 1.25 cm long, and have a scaly appearance. Their colour can range from a pale silver to a dark silver/blue. They also have two long antennae. Unfortunately, if you’ve seen one silverfish, there are likely to be many more in hiding.  
  3. Droppings: Silverfish have small spherical-shaped droppings. Their waste is often found near items they’ve been feeding on.  

How Can You Prevent a Silverfish Infestation? 

If you want to hang onto paperwork, photos, books, or clothes, it’s best to store them in sealed containers to reduce silverfish activity in the home. 

Another way is to ensure you vacuum your home regularly and thoroughly.  

This way you can get rid of food crumbs and other items that attract silverfish into your property.  

How Do You Get Rid of Silverfish? 

Silverfish can be hard to treat yourself as you may not get a spray into the source of the problem. 

The best way to deal with these clothes destroyers is to call in professionals, like All Corners Carpet Cleaning and Pest Control.  

Silverfish are included in our standard pest control treatment. 

Learn more about our pest control services and inclusions here.

What Are The Main Reasons For Pest Control In Brisbane?

If you’re not a fan of unwanted houseguests, you might be wondering what are the main reasons for pest control in Brisbane? 

We need to manage pests for many reasons but the main ones are to prevent the spread of disease, to help stop damage to our biggest asset – our home, and to stop food contamination from occurring. 

Check out our blog below to find out more about why your home needs regular pest control.  

3 Reasons You Need Pest Control  

It can be unsettling when creepy, crawling critters start taking over your Brisbane home.  

Getting and staying on top of your pest control isn’t just about feeling comfortable again – your unwanted house guests could be causing a range of issues for your home and your health.  

Regular pest treatments can help to avoid: 

Spread of diseases: 

Pests carry different diseases which they can spread when they’re freely roaming around a home.  

These diseases can cause illness, skin irritations, respiratory issues and other health problems. 

Damage to your home and belongings: 

Termites are the biggest problem when it comes to home damage, but wood borers also cause structural damage by destroying the timber in the home. This damage is not covered by insurance.   

Rodents can nibble their way through water pipes or cabling. You may also experience air conditioning or power shortages if there are black ant nest build ups.  

It’s also worth keeping an eye on your clothes because insects like silverfish can chew holes in them. 
 

Food contamination:

Cockroaches, rodents and other stored food product pests can be found in the pantry. They typically gnaw their way through packaging and eat your non-perishables.  

ANY item which might have been contaminated by a diseased pest needs to be thrown out.  

How Often Do You Really Need Pest Control? 


As the temperatures and humidity start to increase, insect life cycles will also start speeding up, and they’ll be out looking for food and shelter – so Spring is a really great time to book in your pest control treatment.  

We highly recommend annual termite inspections and pest treatments to help keep the bugs at bay.  

Properties which are more prone to pests may need more regular treatments every 3 to 6 months. 

What Are The Main Reasons For Pest Control in Brisbane? 

Keep the unwanted pests away with regular pest control in Brisbane.

North Lakes Carpet Cleaning

If stubborn pet stains or messy rugs need a bit of attention in your home, we can take care of your North Lakes carpet cleaning. 

We understand how easily carpets can be marked and soiled – especially if your kids have walked muddy prints through the house, or your new pup is toilet training.  

All Corners Cleaning and Pest Control will have your carpets looking pristine again in no time with a thorough cleanse.   

Find out more about our cleaning process in our blog below, and hear what one of our happy customers had to say.   

Carpet Cleaning Pet Stains and Odour 

A dog or cat can bring great joy to any family. However, it can take a little time for the toilet training to sink in for every new four-legged friend.  

One of our clients from Brisbane’s Northside has recently experienced all the highs of having a new puppy, but unfortunately the toilet training process left three of their carpeted room heavily soiled.  

They weren’t confident carpet cleaning would fix the stains and stench but said they were very happy with the results.  

I was almost positive nobody would be able to get the heavy soiling out of my carpet, but All Corners definitely proved me wrong! I am very happy with the results and the pricing was also very affordable considering the state of the carpet. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great carpet cleaning company and I know I will be using your services again. Thank you so much for doing an amazing job!

Emma

Affordable Carpet Cleaning Brisbane 

As part of the cleaning process for stains and smells, we adjust our pre spray mix, depending on the soiling in the carpet. We also have professional spot stainers we use as well.  

Our truck-mounted machinery heats the water and we can adjust the pressure to give the carpet a really deep clean.  

We know no one wants to pay an arm and a leg to have their carpets cleaned, so we aim to provide a service that effective and affordable.

line of ants

How to get rid of ants inside

If tiny ants have invaded your home and you want to know how to get rid of ants inside, All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control is here to help.  

These nuisance pests like to make themselves comfortable near food and water – just like humans.  

And while there is no sure-fire way to completely eliminate them, our expert team uses safe pesticides to reduce their numbers and keep the ant army at bay. 

Keep reading our blog below to learn more. 

Why do ants come inside?  

Ants are commonly found nesting in electrical appliances, like air conditioners. They also get into food products and can even crawl into bed with you!  

Why? Well they like to be inside to be close to a food and water source such as sinks, dishwashers and food cupboards.  

How to get rid of ants permanently 

Unfortunately, you can never get rid of all ants, and their nests, completely.  

However, reducing numbers around the home helps to keep them away for a longer period of time.  

When it comes to dealing with ants, it’s best to call in the experts. 

At All Corners we:  

  1. Locate the ants’ nests,  
  2. Eliminate the nests, and 
  3. Eliminate any trails to reduce ant activity on your property.  

How to get rid of ants naturally  

The team at All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control uses a range of safe pesticides to cull ant numbers. 

While it’s recommended to call in the experts to deal with an ant problem, there are a few natural repellents you could try in the lead up to your appointment.  

  • Baking Soda – It is one of the most popular natural treatments for common insect pests. Just mix it with some powdered sugar and place it where you have seen ants. 
  • White vinegar – White vinegar helps to disrupt the pheromone trail. You can mix it with some water and spray the solution on and around the ants, and anywhere you want to stop them coming into your home. 
  • Cinnamon – Cinnamon essential oil has a strong smell that repels ants. Spray a solution of this oil and water around your home.

If ants are invading your home, book in for your next pest control treatment today.

5 Reasons you should get your carpets professionally cleaned

5 reasons you should get your carpets professionally cleaned

If dirt, stains and other mess have you turning a blind eye to your carpets, it’s definitely time to get them taken care of.

Not convinced? The experienced team at All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control have put together the top 5 reasons you should get your carpets professionally cleaned.

See all the information in our blog below! If you need to ask questions, or you would like to make a booking, please get in touch with the All Corners team on 0439 722 914 or send an online message here.

5 reasons you should get your carpets professionally cleaned

If it’s time to freshen up those carpets, here are some great reasons to get it done professionally – other than just the nice clean look and smell!

  1. Best choice in cleaning products: Our professional carpet cleaners use high quality cleaning products, including carpet detergents to help remove stubborn sediment, that won’t cause any damage to your carpet.
  2. Carpet sanitation: We clean with really hot water (100 degrees celsius!). This provides better sanitation of the carpet and removes cleaning products more efficiently.
  3. Stain removal: We can remove stains using specially formulated spot cleaners that won’t damage the carpet.
  4. Appearance and feel: A professional carpet cleaner uses products that will leave your carpet feeling softer and cleaner for longer.
  5. A longer carpet life: We recommend having your carpets cleaned at least every 12 months to keep them fresh and prolong the carpet life. Some people who have kids and pets at home may need their carpet cleaned more frequently.

Expert tip: Regular vacuum cleaning will also help your carpet stay cleaner for longer, as it will also help to remove loose dust and sediment before it becomes ingrained in the fibre.

Client Testimonial Carpet Clean Clontarf

One client who contacted us thought her carpets were in such a bad state they’d need to be replaced. However, after we’d finished, she was so happy with how her carpets had scrubbed up that she’s vowed to get them cleaned more frequently.

Here’s what she had to say about her experience:

“We just had All Corners Carpet Cleaning out to do the dining, lounge and hallway carpets, they were in a horrible state from the kids. They have done a fantastic job and were very professional and courteous. I highly recommend and will continue to use this company in the future. Thank you All Corners Carpet Cleaning!”

Pest Control During Winter Brisbane

Pest Control During Winter Brisbane

We may not experience much in the way of cold weather in the sunshine state, but you still need to be mindful about pest control during winter.

Taking care of pests in and around your home is something that needs to be done all year round, no matter how hot or cold it gets.

In our experience, we see different pests and behaviours more active throughout the different seasons.

All Corners Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control can help eliminate the bugs from your home with our quality pest control services.

If you need to ask questions or you’re looking for advice, please get in touch with the All Corners team. Call us on 0439 722 914 or send an online message here.

Pests and Cooler Weather

As we don’t have really cold winters in Queensland, most nuisance bugs are active all year round. Their breeding cycles do tend to slow down so there is less of them around but they can still be seen around the home, so it’s important that we don’t become complacent.

Rat and mice activity does tend to increase in the cooler months. They will enter roof spaces and venture inside the home to get out of the cold, forage for materials to nest in and look for food sources.

See more about the signs of rodents and what treatments are needed in our blog North Brisbane Winter Rodent Treatments here.

Tips for Preventing Pests in Winter

  • We recommend maintaining regular pest treatments even throughout the winter months to prevent infestations building up.
  • Check around your home and fix any spots in and around doors, windows and the roof that may provide easy access for pests.
  • Keep an eye out for unusual activity like marks from teeth gnawing or scratching, droppings and whether you hear any odd sounds in the walls or roof, particularly at night.
