Pests like cockroaches, ants and fleas can be a huge problem for offices. So you'll obviously want to ensure adequate treatment from time to time to prevent them from becoming an issue. Here are some steps to prepare your office for pest control.
Move All Office Furniture Away From Walls
Pests generally tend to hide between wall crevices and in corners, so your first action should be to move all office furniture away from the walls. This includes everything from desks and chairs to computer units and storage systems. This will make it easier for the pest control technicians to freely move inside your office premises and tackle all problem corners.
Tie Up All Wires Together To Prevent Accidents
When you run an office, wires between computer and electronic equipment will likely be on the floors and walls. It's best to tie all the wires together so that the pest control technicians don't trip on them or snap them while undertaking their jobs in your office. If possible, set the wires to one side of the room, so that the technician doesn't find it hard to navigate through the room and can do a more thorough pest control treatment job.
Remove All Curtains From Windows
If your office has curtains, they can absorb the chemicals from the pest control treatment and will remain in your office for days and months to come. This can prove to be hazardous for your employees, so make sure you have them removed and out of the vicinity when your office is being treated. Once the treatment is over and the room has been sufficiently aired, you can arrange to have the curtains placed back once again. You may need to do the same for your blinds if they are made from cloth or some other absorbent materials.
Plan The Pest Control Day And Time Based On Your Office Working Hours
Choose a day when your employees are on holiday, so that no one is in the office during the pest control treatment. If your employees don't work on weekends, this is perhaps the best time to organise the treatment, so that you can sufficiently air out your office before they return to work. If your office runs every day, you may need to consider giving your employees a day off to ensure no health risks after the place has been treated.
Pest control treatment is necessary from time to time, so follow these steps to adequately prepare your office for it.
Hello, my name is Frieda, and I have a small phobia of bugs and mice. As a result, I have learned everything possible about keeping these critters out of my home. As I have had all of my old pets artfully positioned by taxidermists, I have also learned niche skills such as keeping pests out of the fur of taxidermy animals. In this blog, I am going to put together the best of everything I know along with some tips from the pros. I hope you find the info you need to live a happy, healthy life in a bug and pest-free home. --Frieda
