mice and rats in commercial facilities in wa

Mice and rats in commercial facilities can damage stock and drive away customers! Protect your reputation with Sprague!

Unfortunately commercial facilities often experience problems with rodents despite efforts to remain completely pest free. Rodents are like the Trojan Horse and business owners must be prepared for a sneak attack at any moment. In order to help keep your facility free from the attack of rodents, read on to discover the extra steps many Portland, Seattle and Salt Lake City facilities are taking in order to remain free of rodents.

Rodents cause a great deal of damage including:

  • contamination of food through droppings and urine

  • eating food especially in the food industries

  • chewing on materials

  • causing structural damage

  • violations to health codes

  • illness to employees and customers

To prevent mice and rats from breaking and entering in your business:

  • Keep doors closed as much as possible.

  • Inspect incoming packages and other items for any signs of rodents including droppings.

  • Seal off any cracks, holes, or gaps on the exterior of the facility.

  • Clean up food spills and other food sources right away.

  • Be on the lookout for any signs of chewing or droppings and then contact your local pest control company right away at the first sign of any rodent action.

We offer superior rodent control for facilities and businesses throughout our large service area including Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; Salt Lake City, Utah; Boise, Idaho; and Denver, Colorado.
