The importance of ongoing pest control for Tamworth businesses

From recruitment and managing employees to attracting new customers and paying the bills, businesses have enough to worry about without pests being one of them which is why we have a team of dedicated pest controllers in Tamworth

Pest control issues can plague all types of businesses. The food industry typically attracts rodents for example while office-based companies fight a constant battle against roosting pigeons. 

Why exactly is ongoing pest control important for Tamworth businesses however?


It protects your reputation 

There are a number of industries where effective pest control simply isn’t negotiable if you want to survive. Say you run a café, restaurant or B&B for example. If news got out that you have a pest infestation, this could damage the reputation of your business forever. This is especially important in today’s digital world where news travels fast and people tend to check online reviews before deciding where to eat or stay.

Don’t wait until you’re faced with an infestation before you act. Your local team of Tamworth pest controllers can implement steps and offer guidance to help prevent problems occurring in the first place. 


 It may be a legal requirement   

The food manufacturing and hospitality industries face complex auditing requirements and it’s crucial that your business complies with all the latest rules and regulations. Failure to do so could see you being hit with fines and/or temporary or even permanent closure.

Our experts ensure that you’re compliant with business specific regulations, audits and CRRU.  


You can focus on other areas of your business

Food safety legislation is becoming increasingly complex and new standards and practices are being introduced all the time. When you’re busy running a business, you may not have time to keep on top of all the changes. When you hire someone like Prokill Tamworth to manage ongoing pest control for you however, you can be rest assured that the ongoing training our experts receive means they’re always in the know. 


Protects your employees and customers

Pests can pose all sorts of health and safety risks. Bird droppings can cause people to slip over, seagulls can become aggressive if they feel threatened and pigeons actually carry more harmful diseases to humans that rats do. Rodents are incredibly problematic too because they can contaminate food supplies, pass on diseases, cause serious structural damage and pose a fire risk. 

Ongoing pest control reduces the likelihood of suffering an infestation which means you’re doing everything you can to protect your customers and employees.
