Rospotrebnadzor told about preventive and sanitary standards, which should be observed to prevent the reproduction of tropical bugs, the number of which in Russia has doubled in recent years.
“It is necessary to regularly clean the premises, it is better to use a vacuum cleaner, change bedding often, wash it right away without holding it in storage tanks,” the statement says on the agency’s website.
In addition, it is necessary to periodically inspect sofas, carpets and pay attention to dark points in the joints of furniture details, picture frames, on the inner side of lagging wallpaper, and also on blood stains on bedding, this may indicate the presence of bugs.
It is also important to carry out systematic repairs in the apartment, including whitewashing ceilings, pasting wallpaper, sealing gaps in the floor, behind baseboards, at the window sills and door joints.
When checking into hotels, Russians are advised to carefully inspect the bed, and also to keep things in the bathroom or shower room, since there it will be more difficult for the bugs to get into the clothes because of the slippery surface.
After returning home, you must hand the clothes to the laundry or dry cleaning.
