Bed bug services for businesses

A bed bug infestation in a commercial business can have severe consequences. Just a few bed bugs can spread quickly from unit to unit and lead to loss of income. An infestation can also cause irreparable harm and distrust in the brand that you have spent valuable time building with your customers. If not properly treated it can lead to costly remediation and potential legal action against your facility. 

The hospitality industry is most commonly associated with bed bug problems, however, it is essential to note that almost every industry is susceptible to a bed bug infestation. Multi-family housing, educational facilities, offices, retail stores and more are all at risk of these sneaky pests because bed bugs are present anywhere their food source, human blood, is readily available.

If you suspect your business has a bed bug problem, don’t panic. Call the Rentokil experts at 1-877-690-2115 right away!

How to keep bed bugs out of your business

Since bed bugs are extremely small in size and travel on items such as clothing and furniture, it is nearly impossible to bed-bug-proof your property. However, there are steps you can take to protect your employees and customers from experiencing a full-on infestation.

  1. Remove clutter: Clutter makes it difficult to detect bed bugs and provides more places for them to hide. This is especially true of storage areas and utility closets.
  2. Develop policies: Develop and implement protocols for employees to report bed bugs in your business.
  3. Perform regular inspections: Before cleaning, perform a thorough scan of the room and examine bed bug hotspots such as all upholstery, around and under desks, along baseboards and beams, in electrical outlets and surge protectors, behind the artwork, or in electronics such as computers, phones, or clocks — all of which are common hiding places for bed bugs in business.
  4. Avoid used items: Although finding gently used furniture items at second-hand stores is an affordable option for most businesses, it is best to refrain from buying used items as there is a risk of bringing infested pieces into your building.
  5. Keep cleanliness a priority: Vacuum and clean your business regularly. You may want to invest in a professional cleaning team to clean the hallways, kitchens, lobby areas, public bathrooms, and storefronts daily.
