From hiring and training employees to increasing profit and clientele, the stressful nature of managing a business is easy to see, but utilizing a pest and rodent control service is also important. Not only will this service rid your office of pests, but it will also educate you on the best practices to prevent bugs and rodents.
Dangers of Infestations
You may be surprised to hear how dangerous a rodent infestation can be for your business. The sight of a mouse or rat inside your offices can be frightening for your employees alone. However, if a customer or potential client sees a rodent inside your offices, you could be at risk of losing essential business or sales.
In addition to the overall cosmetic damage and possible loss of business, a rodent infestation can be hazardous to your health. Mice and rats carry bacteria and disease that will place you, your employees, and your clients at risk of illness. Because of this risk to public safety, if you allow the issue to persist someone will likely notify the city and they could potentially shut your business down entirely.
Lastly, an infestation of any sort can lead to physical damage. Rodents burrow into floors, walls, and furniture, which can wreak havoc on your office. Also, these small pests enjoy chewing on wiring so they may target your computer and electrical equipment. Damage to any wiring not only leads to expensive repairs and replacements but is also a fire hazard.
Signs of an Infestation
Seeing an occasional mouse is not a sign of an infestation, but it is definitely a sign you need to consult a rodent control service. Here are a few indications of an infestation:
- Seeing mice during the day
- Chew marks on wiring, walls, areas of your office
- Mouse droppings in various areas of your office
- Scraping or squealing noises behind the walls (especially at night)
One of the main benefits of hiring a Plano pest control professional service for your office is they will rid your space of these dangerous rodents. Of course, utilizing a professional pest control team will also help maintain a healthy environment that is free of both rodents and other pests.
Through ongoing maintenance visits every few weeks, a pest control service will educate you on the best practices to reduce the risk of rodents in your office. Cleaning up spills immediately and disposing of food and trash are essential steps to take to prevent mice and rats from your business.
Pest control professionals will also seal up any cracks in your foundation, crawlspace, or drywall, which may be allowing rodents into your office. Controlling moisture in and around your place of business is also important, since water, any liquid, and high humidity appeals to rodents and other pests.
