Commercial Pest Control for Business
To comply with health and safety regulations, most businesses are required to implement appropriate pest management practices. Having a regular contract with a pest control business is the easiest and most effective way to prevent pest issues and ensure ongoing compliance with the law.
Why Have a Pest Control Contract?
Peace of Mind – Working with a professional exterminator can keep your business, premises, employees and customers safe from pest-related problems such as health hazards, bad publicity and potential legal consequences. Instead of waiting for them to appear, prevent future pest problems with effective pest control methods.
Professional Pest Management – Certified technicians are well-versed in the latest pest prevention and eradication methods, including integrated pest management (IPM), which enables them to achieve great results while minimising the use of pesticides. Pest controllers can implement a long-term pest management strategy tailored to your business, monitor its effectiveness and improve it when necessary.
Law-Compliant Pest Control – Failure to comply with health and safety laws and regulations concerning pest prevention and control by commercial property and business owners can have serious consequences, ranging from the closure of business premises to fines of up to £20,000 and even up to 6 months in prison. A good contractor will be aware of any changes or implications linked to pest control legislation.
Reliable Business Reputation – The local Environmental Health Department, regulatory bodies and your customers will appreciate knowing that your company is proactive and responsible with regard to pest control. In some cases, customers might even insist on proof that a contract is in place before choosing your services.
What to Look For in Pest Control Services
