What causes house centipedes and how can I get rid of them?

I've been seeing a proliferation of house centipedes in my apartment (I had thought they were silverfish but a Google image search proves me wrong). Sometimes gigantic, sometimes tiny (today one in the bed), they turn to dust when crushed but are fast, scary, gross. I see about two a week. I've never had problems with bugs (including cockroaches) before.
I live in NYC, by the way. It's been rainy here recently, but the weather was steadily warm August beforehand. I haven't moved a lot of things around and keep things generally very neat and clean.
