A facilities manager needs to act quickly at the first sign of a pest problem to prevent an infestation from spreading throughout the property and neighboring buildings. Rat and mice populations increase rapidly and cockroach populations can explode, spreading through ventilation shafts, piping and cable trays to infest entire properties in no time.
Pests pose a serious health and safety threat with the potential to contaminate food, transmit pathogenic germs and cause extensive damage to property, equipment and buildings. Below are just a few of the negative impacts pests can have on your facility:
Rentokil has been serving thousands of commercial property management companies worldwide for decades. As industry experts, we know exactly what it takes to protect your property portfolio against a wide variety of pests. Some of the most frequent pest concerns in facilities maintenance are:
Birds - Bird excrement is corrosive and can erode structures. Their feathers and droppings can also clog HVAC units and affect air quality. Rentokil offers advanced, non-toxic bird repellents to humanely and safely eliminate birds from your property – including bird spikes, bird netting and electric bird deterrents.
Bed bugs - Capable of crippling your property’s reputation, bed bugs are on the rise throughout the United States. Rentokil’s PROTECT+ System provides an integrated approach to controlling these pests in your facility, allowing us to respond to your bed bug issues in hours, rather than days. Our unique program offers multiple levels of protection and utilizes a combination of environmentally friendly products to provide ongoing protection that keeps working long after treatment.
Rodents - Rodents such as mice and rats can cause food contamination, spread deadly diseases, and cause property damage by chewing electrical wires and causing fires. Rentokil's Multi Rodent Trap Connect is an innovative, wireless electronic monitoring system that provides 24/7 remote monitoring and protection for your business.
Cockroaches - Cockroaches carry an alarming amount of bacteria and diseases, so cockroach infestations on your properties are a major threat to occupant health. Rentokil offers bait and exclusion solutions to ensure the safety of your tenants. Our treatments will eradicate these filthy pests from all of your properties, no matter the severity of the infestation.
There has been an increase in rat infestations in recent years due to a number of environmental and sociological factors. Find out more here.
A major part of Rentokil’s Integrated Pest Management approach for facilities management is pest prevention. We do this by setting up traps and monitoring devices in and around your properties. Additionally, our Specialists will advise your team on proper sanitation methods to prevent pest issues from becoming a full-blown infestation. Simple steps such as removing garbage and making sure that weeds and vegetation are not encroaching on your properties will discourage pests from invading. We work to seal up external access points to limit their ability to enter your buildings. We also make sure to replace screens, seal up holes and cracks, and fix defective pipes and drains. All of these steps are able to save your business from the costly repairs and treatments that come with an out-of-control pest infestation on your property.
