An infestation – be it of insects, rodents or birds – is a nightmare that every business owner or manager dreads. These pesky creatures can cause disease, damage property, force downtime and destroy a brand’s image. With the online and offline directories awash with pest control services, it’s hard to know which one will deliver immediately and get rid of that embarrassing pest problem. Here are four things to look for in a pest control service (to make sure you’re choosing one that’s awesome).
Your industrial pest control provider works around your schedule, not the other way around
So you’ve diagnosed the pest control problem in your office, and now want to get the professionals in as soon as possible – as not only is a cockroach or rodent infestation a health risk to your valued employees, it sends a terrible signal to any clients that happen to visit your workspace. But how do you get the industrial pest control guys in without having to close shop for the day? Simple. By choosing the right pest control company. You know you’ve chosen the right industrial pest control service when they work around you, and not the other way around. With the right service, your staff’s productivity and safety is a priority.
The best industrial pest control service won’t take you for a ride
There’s a commonly held belief that DIY is cheaper than calling in the professionals. This is a misconception: not only do you spend more in the long run, as you buy product after product in a wild goose chase of trial and error, but you risk damaging furniture and property with botched attempts at getting rid of pesky pests. While this might not be too much of a trainwreck at home, damaging office property has far more repercussions. You might suffer through downtime as furniture is repaired, or your business might incur a hefty fine from the rental agent. Not to mention the cost of the time spent trying to fix the problem yourself. Instead of all that hassle, call the professionals as soon as you realise you’ve got a pest problem and let them take care of the infestation swiftly and cost effectively.
Professional industrial pest control services make safety their number one priority
Ok, so you’ve decided to persevere with DIY pest control tactics. You might not have damaged any property or furniture, and have gone a long way in reducing the number of critters in your office, but what about the safety of both yourself and your staff? Unless you’re a pest control expert – unlikely, given you’re reading this blog – chances are you’re unaware of the impact the chemicals have on the health of everyone in the office. Expert pest controllers make it their business to ensure every aspect of their pest management strategy isn’t harmful to anything or anyone in the environment. Calling a professional service guarantees the safety of everyone in your business.
Calling in an expert industrial pest control service helps you comply with HACCP
In today’s age of stringent health and safety measures – a good thing, you’ll agree – becoming and staying compliant is one of the most important aspects of running a business. It becomes even more important when you’re operating in the food and drinks industry. The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points system was set up to ensure that any type of food handling is kept safe from biological, chemical or physical hazards. Biological hazards include all manner of pests who might be attracted to a food-rich environment, and chemical hazards include the very products that help curb these pests. Untrained individuals risk their HACCP compliance by attempting to take care of the problem themselves. Calling in the professionals will help you stay compliant with all pest management audits, as well as saving you the hassle of doing it yourself.
