Commercial Pest Control for a Restaurant Hotel and Warehouse
When it comes to commercial properties such as schools, hospitals, hotels and restaurants, there is a need for utmost cleanliness and zero tolerance for pests. Unfortunately, pests can be a problem anywhere in the world, pests and insects can infest commercial properties too, which will not only affect business productivity but may also damage customer service experience.
The presence of even a single pest (cockroach, or a mouse) is enough to drive away anyone visiting a business, degrade your business reputation and ultimately bring loss to your business. Pest problems will also affect your employee’s wellbeing.
In this article, we’re going to discuss some of the businesses where pest control and management is a must to implement, before pest infestation occurs. And if you do own or manage any of these types of businesses, you should not delay in contacting a professional pest control company to keep pests away.
Pest Control for Restaurants and Food Handling Businesses
When it comes to dealing with pest infestation, the most vulnerable of all public places are the food outlets and food processing businesses. Pests are always in search of easy access to food and water, and what could be a better place than a restaurant to find food. Most business owners believe that pest infestation is due to not keeping the property clean. But unknown to most people, even if you maintain utmost cleanliness, it is not enough to keep the pests out completely once they have found a source of food in a restaurant.
Ants, cockroaches, and mice are some of the commonly found pests associated with food handling businesses. It is extremely important to ensure preventative measures are in place to completely get rid of them. Meaning, if the infestation has already occurred, then, exterminating them is rather easy for licensed pest control technicians such as Maximum Pest Control Services. But to have a safe, hygienic and disease-free environment, you must focus on prevention so that the problem doesn’t happen again.
Your job as a business owner is to serve your valued customers food that is safe and delicious. Our job is to make sure that occurs without pests interfering with your business.
Pest Control for Warehouses
Warehouses and other storage spaces which are often quite during the night are an ideal environment for pests to nest and breed. With minimal disturbance and at times new products packages coming in consistently can mean regular food sources for pests.
Some species of pests are also known to damage packages such as cardboard boxes or plastic wrapping to access the food. Rodents and cockroaches are the most common pests that invade warehouses, but others such as birds, beetles and flies as well as wildlife animals such as Raccoons. Contact our wildlife removal experts for removing Raccoons from your Oakville, Mississauga, Burlington, Milton, Scarborough, Hamilton property.
Rodents and cockroaches may often carry diseases which can be very serious to human health. Pests can spread diseases through damaging product packaging and eating away food sources, especially when the warehouse stores food items for prolonged periods which is then consumed by certain pests (Rats). No warehouse owner/manager would want to deliver live insects, bugs, or pests along with deliveries, nor you would want to damage your business’s reputation. Talk to us if you own and operate a warehouse (including cold storage) business in Hamilton, Oakville, Mississauga and other locations nearby.
As soon as you realize that pests have made a residence at your warehouse, do not delay contacting a licensed pest control company.
Pest Control for Hotels
Any and all types of businesses are in reality in customer service business. Especially true for hotels and lodging businesses around Ontario Canada since each year, thousands of tourists visit our wonderful country. As a hotel, motel accommodation business owner, you already know the importance of the business reputation and positive feedback from guests is required to grow the business.
Any incident of pests found by staying guests is bound to affect the business, so thus, any business that offers accommodation to guests must maintain strict hygiene protocols and also conduct regular pest inspection throughout the property. However, despite all your efforts, certain types of pests such as bed bugs may go unnoticed till there is a large infestation (or complaint from a guest about being itchy after a good night’s sleep). Delays can result in the multiplication of pests such as bed bugs, cockroaches, rats and others and they can infest every corner of the hotel including rooms, garden, kitchen and other common areas.
Your business may be subjected to regular audits by regional municipality authorities, any pest problem found could mean dealing with unneeded fines, or worse, temporary shutdown of the commercial premise. No business or hotel owner would ever want to see their hard work wasted or business reputation damaged. Just as you would conduct room cleaning daily, thorough property inspection performed by a professional pest control company should be on your to-do list.
