Often overlooked until such time as it’s too late, commercial pest control is best managed on a regular basis before reaching crisis levels. Pest control is the thing nobody wants to talk about, until it is a problem; then it’s all that’s talked about. It can ruin reputations and undo all the hard work businesses do establishing themselves in the public eye. This is why the larger corporates tend to place greater importance on their own Pest Control policies.
Reputation is as important to the local bakery as it is to Coca Cola or McDonald’s; no business is ‘too small’ to make pest control a priority within Facilities Management.
Reputation aside, pest infestations can pose an extreme health risk. Failure to carry out the necessary precautions may result in some severe consequences for employer, employee and customer, depending on the nature of the company.
No company, whether SME or global corporation, can afford to overlook its FM responsibilities and commercial pest control is certainly no exception. Gaps as small as ballpoint pens are large enough for baby mice to fit through and are common in new builds just as much as old buildings. Simply taking small precautions such as filling in these gaps will go a long way to a cleaner, healthier and pest free environment.

We will be on hand quickly to deal with this and can provide a rapid response from anywhere in the UK to make sure your pest problem doesn’t last any longer than it needs to.
