Pests in a commercial building can be devastating. Tenants who are renting out space in your commercial building may not want to renew their lease if there are pests; customers who visit your building could be disgusted if they see pests; and they can cause damage to the structural elements in your building, which is costly to fix. Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to keep your commercial building pest free.
Empty Trash Regularly
One of the best ways to keep your commercial building pest free is to keep it clean. Unwanted insects and animals are attracted to food. Regularly cleaning your building deter pests. In addition, be sure to empty the trash regularly. People in commercial buildings tend not to empty their trash as often as they do at home. However, if there are food wrappers or leftover food remnants in the trash, you could attract pests. Routinely removing the trash prevents this issue.
Eliminate Wet Spots and Moisture
Another way to discourage pests from making your commercial building their home is to eliminate wet spots and moisture. Most pests prefer damp, moist places. If you have damp spaces, this encourages pests to build a nest nearby. In addition to this, damp or wet spots can lead to mildew and mold growth. Some types of mold are harmful to those in your building, while both mold and mildew is costly to remove. Eliminating moisture prevents mold and mildew and decreases the chance of pests living in your building.
Utilize a Pest Control Company
Lastly, utilize the services of a pest control company who has experience with commercial buildings, even if you don't have a pest control problem. A great company can audit your building for potential problems and eliminate these issues before they turn into a problem. In addition, a pest control company can spray around the perimeter of your building to keep pests at bay. A pest control company will also eliminate pests if any issues do arise.
