While pest infestation at homes is usually given the attention it deserves, commercial building infestations are not generally ignored. And as a result, many infestations that otherwise could have been managed easily, spiral out of control. And in such cases, getting rid of the pesky pests cannot be achieved without the help of commercial pest control companies. Therefore, to avoid a situation where professionals have to be called, it is best to take action instead of ignoring the first signs of pest infestation in your office or other commercial buildings.
Some of the common pests that invade office complexes are rodents, termites, cockroaches, and at times even birds, etc. These vermin are undesirable at any human habitation due to several reasons, most important of which are – dangers to our health, and damage to property. Commercial pest control becomes even more important since if the health of a company’s employees is found to have been impacted due to neglect of such infestations, then the company is even liable for legal action against it. And hence, it is prudent to hire a professional Perth pest control agency such as BP Direct, as soon as any kind of pest infestation is detected.
In order to detect whether there has been an infestation in your office building, look out for signs such as droppings, urine, claw marks, visual sights, damaged wires, etc. While it’s easier to spot bigger pests such as mice and cockroaches, others such as termites may be extremely hard to detect visually. And so, it helps if one knows the various tell-tale signs left behind by different types of vermin. For example, rat droppings, chewed wires/papers, claw marks and prints on dusty floors are clear indications of an increase in rat population. While the presence of irregular and mud-like lines on walls and galleries, sightings of swarms especially near light sources, etc. are clear signs of termite infestation. Spiders can be easily detected due to the cobwebs, while ants and cockroaches are also easy to see along the walls and on floors. If you find any other type of visual cues that indicate the presence of either the above mentioned or else unknown variety of pests in your office, immediately call upon a professional pest control Perth company. They will not only assess the extent of invasion and amount of damage already done, but also take appropriate action to eliminate each type of infestation in the best possible way.
As mentioned earlier, owners of commercial properties such as offices, shops, and other rentals have to ensure that their buildings are free from pests, because such infestations adversely affect not just their business (in terms of damaged inventory, stored papers, wirings, food, etc.), but also the health of the employees and other residents. Just as residential pest control is essential for our homes, commercial pest control is a must for all commercial rentals.
