What’s the difference between residential and commercial pest control?

How can we Help?

When people think of pest control, they often think about how it applies to their home. After all, none of us want creepy crawlies causing problems in and around the house. However, it’s also important to consider how pest control applies in a commercial setting and why it’s essential to have a plan in place for your business.

Commercial pest control

When it comes to residential pest control, it’s generally a fairly straight forward process. You contact your pest control service if you notice an infestation and can then have regular inspections to make sure your home remains pest free. Other than keeping kids and pets away from stinging or biting pests, there’s not much you need to worry about while waiting on pest control. However, things can get a bit more complicated in a commercial setting and there are a few more things you need to consider when it comes to unwelcome pests in your business.

One of the main reasons why effective commercial pest control is so important is that an infestation can damage your business reputation. If customers spot pests, particularly rats, mice and cockroaches, it can be seriously off-putting and result in word being spread about the hygiene of your premises. For businesses in the food and catering sector, it’s especially important that this situation is dealt with. The last thing you need is to receive a damning report from health inspectors.

Pests in a commercial setting also need to be dealt with promptly due the health risks they can cause and the legal and insurance implications this can bring. Pests can spread disease and employees and customers can be at risk from illness if pests are left unchecked. Some pests can also be very damaging to stock you may have in storage.

As you can see, there are a number of reasons why pest control in a commercial setting is so important. Don’t leave contacting pest control until you have an infestation – get a service plan in place which suits the needs of your business and means you can prevent issues before they happen.
