Most people don’t have to put much thought into getting residential pest control. It’s an obvious win. You want to protect your home and your family from unwanted pests and a pest control service is an easiest and safest way to do so. But, we’re often surprised how some commercial property owners don’t make the connection when it comes to protecting their commercial properties in the same way. While you and your loved ones may not live in commercial spaces (or perhaps you do), you likely have significant resources tied up there and it’s important to protect them.
If you’re considering an investment in commercial pest control but haven’t pulled the trigger yet, we think there is no time like the present to get started. Each day, month or even year that you wait might be giving destructive pests free rein of your building or property. If you’re still not convinced, we have compiled an incomprehensive list of some of the primary reasons our commercial clients are happy that they have invested in our services.
Prevent A Loss Of Income Due To Infestation
Can you imagine how your business would suffer if your team had to evacuate your facilities due to a pest infestation? When you hear the word infestation your mind might go directly toward an event of apocalyptic proportions. And while you’re unlikely to suffer from a pest issue of that severity it is very common for commercial buildings to become infested with termites, fleas, cockroaches, rodents, and more. Once your building has been infested you’ll need to have it treated. Most business owners turn to fumigation services which require your staff to evacuate from the building, remove items that could be contaminated, and potentially halt your productivity. All of the staff efforts that are redirected to prepare for fumigation are efforts and time that would otherwise be spent doing business that makes your company money. When you invest in regular commercial pest control you protect your investments and avoid the serious interruptions that come along with pest infestation.
Avoid Health Code Violations
Depending upon the kind of business you have, a facility that is overrun with pests may be a serious health code violation. If you own a restaurant, food processing or manufacturing company, or any other business where you’re responsible to keep up with health codes, you ought to be investing in commercial pest control. Bad news travels fast, and bug infestations in restaurants, spas, or doctor’s offices are not the kind of news you want your clientele to hear about your business. As fellow business owners, we know how important reputation is. When you commit to regular professional pest control you can rest assured that your reputation for a clean, healthy business will stay intact.
Protect Against The Destruction Of Property
In addition to the frustration of having to evacuate your commercial property so that it can be treated for a pest infestation, you also run the risk of suffering serious structural damage. A common foe of commercial properties is termites. There’s a lot to know about termites, but one of the most important things is that they are extremely hungry. Once a termite colony decides to settle down in your building they will eat and eat, all day every day. A single termite colony can have up to one million termites in it. Can you imagine how quickly a termite colony could destroy a building if it isn’t caught in time? Termites cause tens of billions of dollars worth of structural damage in the United States every year, and we’re guessing that you don’t want to be part of that statistic. We don’t know about you, but we’d rather invest in commercial pest control than have to pay the cost to have your warehouse or office building rebuilt. Of course, termites aren’t the only pest you have to worry about. Bed bugs, ants, bees, squirrels, rats, and other rodents can all create damage in their way when left unchecked within your commercial property. Let’s avoid the guessing games, and help you get a good night’s sleep by taking a proactive step against potential pests in your commercial buildings.
At the end of the day, as a business person, you have to make the investments that you feel are best for your commercial property in the long term. We think if most people knew the stakes there would be no commercial property owner going without pest control. If you’ve avoided pest control until now and are facing a serious problem, we are here to help. We are experts in fixing problems just like yours and we’ll do so with the highest customer service around. But the best time to call our team is before the pest infestation strikes.
