Pest Control & Pest Prevention Services for Office Buildings

Pest Control for Office Buildings

Pest infestation of any kind in and around your office building or grounds can cause distress and upset to both staff and visitors. What’s more, pests can cause significant damage to your building, wiring, equipment and supplies and give staff and visitors a bad impression of your business.  Failure to provide safe working conditions for employees may see you falling foul of employment and health and safety law and could potentially result in prosecution.

Monitor’s pest control and pest prevention services will protect your office building with comprehensive, effective and discreet pest control solutions which will treat infestation and put effective measures in place to prevent recurrence.

If you require a pest control and prevention programme that identifies and eliminates pest infestations quickly and efficiently, whilst adhering to current health and safety legislation, Monitor can help.

Whether your business resides in a large office block alongside many other companies, or has a small stand-alone office, we can ensure that your premises remain pest free and hygienic. We will implement pest management measures to deter rodents, insects and other pests, and install bird proofing to roofs and ledges to prevent birds from nesting and roosting.  These measures are likely to vary depending on the construction, location and age of your office building.

Our highly trained team of professional pest control technicians have unrivalled expertise and practical experience in the identification and elimination of a variety of pests, including birds and rodents. We provide ongoing protection strategies for your office building to meet all of your commercial pest control and prevention needs within the office environment. We offer effective and high-quality treatments to solve your pest problems quickly and permanently.

While there are many different pests which may infest offices at various times of the year, the most common pests include:

Rodents - Whether it’s the biscuits in the kitchen or the paper in the storeroom, rats or mice will gnaw through anything, resulting in costly damage to buildings, fixtures and fittings.  What’s more, by gnawing through wiring they can significantly increase your fire risk.  Defecation on desks and in kitchen areas leads to an unhygienic and unpleasant working environment and can result in contamination of food and water supplies.

Bees and Wasps – Bees and wasps are a common nuisance in eating areas, particularly during the summer when they are high in numbers.  It is not uncommon for bee and wasp nests to be found within the eaves of office buildings, and if these are not dealt with professionally and swiftly, infestation can quickly occur leading to distress among employees, and potentially nasty stings.

General Insects – An infestation of insects such as flies, fleas, cockroaches or beetles can cause distress to employees and visitors and are especially problematic in eating and kitchen areas.   Infestations that are not managed appropriately can quickly become overwhelming, leading to food contamination and potentially prosecution.

Birds – Birds can cause problems around office buildings, where they choose to nest and roost on roof tops and window ledges. This can result in unsightly and unhygienic droppings on and around the building, in addition to slip hazards below.  Birds are a particular issue for listed buildings, where guano can stain brickwork and cause chemical damage.  The accumulation of guano, nesting materials and/or bird carcasses can block roof drainage systems, leading to water penetrating the building and providing conditions for chemical decay.
