Pest proofing and prevention solutions

Pest proofing is the process of preventing infestations by sealing all entry points that pests could use to get onto your premises.

Rodents can gain entry to buildings by taking advantage of structural gaps from drains to doors, windows, pipework and cables, vents and poorly fitted panels and roofing material.

Once inside your building, rodents can pose a significant risk to your business. They carry a wide range of diseases, can physically contaminate stock, damage building infrastructure and can ultimately have a negative impact on your business’ reputation.

Rentokil can help keep your business free from infestations by implementing preventative practices and suitable proofing solutions to block entry routes.

We have over 95 years of experience studying pest behaviour to provide customers with innovative control solutions. We’ve developed the most effective pest proofing methods and materials to safeguard businesses from rodents and other pests at our Global Research and Development Centre.

Entry prevention

Rentokil will fill gaps with rodent-resistant materials, ensure doors are rodent-proofed with bristle strips and further prevent entry via loading areas or roller doors with specially designed barriers.

Damage reduction

Effective pest proofing eliminates damage caused by rodents and other pests from gnawing pipes, cables and doors, damage from droppings, nesting materials and food contamination.

Cost reduction

Pre-emptive proofing will future-proof against the potentially high cost of eradication and damage repair. Preventative measures will also mitigate reputational damage to reputation which can, in turn, result in loss of trust and revenue.

Why pest proof your building?

Our expert technicians are specially trained and understand how to target pest species, know exactly which holes to proof to block rodent entry, how to proof them and use a combination of best-in-class products to achieve effective proofing.

Benefits of pest proofing:

  • prevents infestations and, as a result, reduces the use of pesticides to control infestations and contributes to your sustainability goals.
  • protects your building from costly pest-related damage.
  • safeguards your reputation by preventing pest infestations that could tarnish your brand image.
  • prevents disruption, allowing your business to continue operating at its best.
  • enhances employee satisfaction and retention by creating a more comfortable working environment and increasing productivity.
