When it comes to pests it’s not really a matter of if but when they will infest. Whether a guest introduces bed bugs, a shipment arrives infested with some type of pest or rodents execute a hostile takeover, the bottom line is pest problems are a serious threat to your business. In addition to tarnishing a company’s hard earned image and reputation, businesses in Portland, Seattle and Salt Lake City as well as throughout the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain regions are exposed to many problems when pests infest, including:
Loss Of Business. Sightings of pests could give the impression your facility is dirty and/or unsanitary and a pest infestation is likely to drive away even your most loyal customers.
Costly Litigation. Your company could face potential lawsuits when pests infest. From bed bug infestations to accidents resulting from pest bird problems, pests only increase your company’s risk for litigation.
Health Risks. The health and safety of customers and employees could be jeopardized when insects and rodents are present. Bites, stings, food contamination and slips and falls are just a few of the risks that could result from a pest infestation.
Damage To Facility. Product contamination and significant damage to the facility and costly equipment is often caused by pests nesting and gnawing as well as from their urine and droppings.
Company Reputation. Pests are a public relations nightmare; news of infestations travel quickly through word of mouth, media and sites such as bedbugregistry.com.
