Cockroach Infested Laptop In Need of Repair

laptop repair shop
Hi,
After my last stint on campus, I have been staying with the parents for the Summer. Unfortunately, their home has been crawling with critters, including cockroaches, and I am afraid that they may have gotten in there an caused the problems I have been experiencing.
Having no luck repairing the PC myself, and in fact failing to diagnose the problem at all, I'd like to take it to a shop to get it repaired professionally. However, it is definitely infested with cockroaches.  My question is, will I be denied service because of this? If it depends on the place, do we know of any places that will provide service?
OH and it is out of warranty.

    Very unusual problem.. You could always pass it of as you don't know why and let the repair shop tell you. Did you actually find them inside your machine when you tried to repair it or is this just a guess.

    Just thought I'd add this. It might be a bit of an inconvenience but get yourself a laptop bag or backpack. Put the laptop away when you are done using it for the day. I go through this routine nightly. After dinner I get my laptop bag and set up my computer. Play games for about 2 hours. Turn it off and put it back in the bag. The reason is like you mentioned. If you leave it out in the open, a bug or who knows what else,  may detect it as a heat source and try to find it's way in through the ventilation system. It takes no time to do really, I can set up and put the laptop away in under a minute.
