Commercial Pest Control in Atlanta & Surrounding Areas
The stakes are high when it comes to pest problems in commercial facilities. The condition of the place of business has an impact on business image and public perception of the company. Additionally, commercial facilities are subject to specific health and safety regulations, depending on the nature of the business.
Pest Problems in Commercial Facilities
Commercial sites are typically high traffic areas. With employees, customers and various suppliers and contractors using the site on a regular basis, it is important to ensure that the site is suitable for public access at all times. Any hint of an infestation of ants, roaches or rodents can put the business in a bad light and drive customers away. Moreover, places that are licensed to serve food are required to conform to strict standards of cleanliness and pest-free conditions or face severe penalties such as fines and business closure.
Unlike residential properties, commercial buildings have to deal with delivery of supplies and equipment from diverse sources, providing pathways for non-local pests to enter the site. Without regular inspection and extermination strategies, pests can quickly establish colonies that could be difficult and expensive to eradicate.
With constant traffic, it is difficult for commercial facilities to ensure 100 percent sanitation of all areas at all times, increasing the likelihood of a pest infestation.
Benefits of a Pest Management Strategy for Commercial Facilities
Severe pest problems do not happen overnight. Businesses that do not have a proactive pest control plan in place are more likely to face difficult but preventable infestation problems.
Prudent sanitation practices such as keeping garbage containers and dumpsters sealed, cleaning and disinfecting food service areas, and proper building and landscaping maintenance are all crucial in controlling various forms of pest infestation in commercial facilities.
However, a pest management strategy without timely inspection by a professional is not complete. Early signs of an infestation can be missed or misdiagnosed, leading to incorrect treatment. Pests that cause structural damage, such as termites or property damage such as ants and rodents, can be costly for property owners and their tenants.
