What to do about office pests?

  • Determine problem areas: First, it is essential that you determine what are the most common spots in office that are frequented by pests. Trashcans and kitchens are common problem areas as they generally contain food. You can also find pests lingering in bathrooms due to water. Start by looking for any cracks in the surfaces where these pests might be slipping inside. Once you find the problem area, you can seal it.
  • Use pesticides: If you are getting troubled with insects, use pesticides in common pest spots. Do this on weekends or after working hours, so that your team members won’t be bothered. Also, make sure you go for environment friendly pesticides.
  • Make everyone aware: Keeping office clean is possible with the team effort, so it is important that you make everyone aware of the pests and tell them about the importance of keeping their workstations clean and clutter free.
  • Clean up: Not all pests arrive in your office because it is dirty, but it is very rare to see pests in regularly cleaned offices as compared to dirty ones. So, it is essential to do the following:
    Regular Dusting
    Sanitizing
    Keeping all of your water and food contained and well stored
    Regular disposal of trash
    Refrigerator cleaning at least once every month
    Keep all your dustbins covered
    Clean all stains and spills immediately
    Remove clutter
    Or better hire commercial cleaning services to do the work for you.
