Cockroach Control in Office Buildings
Cockroaches in the Office?
Nobody likes coming into work to see, or hear about, cockroaches in their office. It can be a sign of unsanitary work conditions, but more importantly, it can damage your reputation among current and prospective tenants. It’s important to show you care about the well being of everyone in the building, so for a property manager, a swift response is the first step in taking control of the situation and restoring trust in the eyes of your tenants.
Why Cockroaches are Attracted to Your Workplace
The communal nature of a workplace, particularly the kitchen area, lends itself to a perfect breeding ground for cockroaches. This area is warm; food is not always carefully stored or removed; and there are lots of hiding spaces to make cockroaches feel at home. So, at-risk areas need to be monitored at all times to help prevent undesirables finding a new home.
Cockroaches are a Threat to Your Business
Cockroaches can carry and transmit a variety of bacteria, including Salmonella and E. coli. Neither employees nor employers want people missing work due to an illness that could have been prevented. On top of that, unsanitary conditions can be financially damaging to both tenants and the property manager, and they can even put you at risk for costly litigation.
How to Get Rid of Cockroaches
When it comes to cockroaches, prevention is the best medicine. A pest management professional can help you identify key entry points for cockroaches, as well as the attractants that are drawing them in. Encourage your tenants and their staff to clean up spills and ensure all food is kept in the refrigerator or in tightly sealed containers. Office cleaning should be regular and thorough. Our Office Precision Protection™ program can help you to understand the risks as well as the remedies.
