Every week once a week treat your drains with InVade Bio Cleaner and over time it will clean out your drains and floor drains reducing the decomposing and grease build up in your drains, you can also use it to mop your floors removing the buildup of grease in your tile and grout. Insects like roaches will feast on the on all that little crud and breed inside your shop. Once done pour the dirty solution down the drain.
This is a slow process so if you have dirty drains you can use a drain brush to clean it out and then use the bio gel to maintain it, if your drains are very slow you may have so much build up that you will need to call a plumber to clean out all your lines with a high pressure line cleaner.
Performing these simple steps can greatly reduce your pest problems.
