This can leave you with an infestation of ants and even roaches. Rodents from outside may also take over as well. Clean up as soon as you can by cleaning with a grinder brush, and soft cloth.

After each meal make sure that you are wiping off the counter top, stove tops as well as tables to remove crumbs and spills that may have happened. Be sure to sweep as well to pick up any of those small particles to stop dirt and food from accumulating.
