Protecting Profits With Commercial Pest Control
If you own or manage a business, maintaining high standards in operations, products, and services is always a top priority. Whether you’re running a retail store, restaurant, warehouse, apartment building, or hotel chain, a commercial pest control problem can negatively affect all three areas, creating issues that cost businesses dearly.
An infestation has a detrimental effect on employees working within the premises, as well as customers either entering the business or using products the company manufactures. It is a health concern, can cause structural damage to the building, make you vulnerable to hefty fines, and ruin a business’s reputation. Ensuring your business is protected against pests is key to your business’s stability and profitability.
Consequences of Pest Infestations
Pests such as rodents, roaches, bedbugs, and termites are a few of the pests that require ongoing vigilance. Every business owner is susceptible to the need for pest removal.
The International Facility Management Association (IFMA), in an article from its publication FMJ, had some startling statistics outlining the consequences of pest infestations:
- More than 25% of businesses suffered a loss of one week’s work due to a pest infestation.
- S. businesses experienced $13.2 billion in lost revenue.
- Once a business has had an infestation, they are more likely to experience another one.
Prevention Is Key
Commercial pest control is not something to be addressed only when an infestation has been discovered. The best approach to pest control is to institute a preventive component so that if your business does experience a pest control problem, it can be addressed with a minimum amount of disruption and distress.
