Most discussions about pest control are centered around people’s residences but people’s places of business are at no less at risk from pest issues. In fact, there are many reasons why a top notch a pest control plan for your business or warehouse should really be part of your routine maintenance.
What is pest control? Well, pest control is mostly about sanitation. There are several forms of pests that could not only damage the items inside your warehouse, but cause hundreds of dollars of lost revenue by contaminating your raw materials or finished goods. That bird flying through the rafters can lead to serious sanitation issues, particularly if it nests. Good pest control practices can ensure you’re always meeting sanitation guidelines.
You have a larger space to control. Your warehouse, unlike a home, will have multiple points of possible entry by pests and fewer people around at all times to see pests at work. This means that you could have a pest problem quickly, and that it could quickly turn into an infestation. It is more difficult to spot termites, ants and other possibly damaging infestations simply because you have more to go over and more to look through on a less frequent basis. Pest control maintenance can help you manage your larger spaces.
You do not want to risk damage to your image. Once a customer base finds out you have had an infestation of some pest, whether that pest actually contaminated your product or not, you will be facing a public relations issue.
Ongoing pest management practices, on the other hand, is something you can actually brag about to your clients as part of the quality goods and services you plan to provide.
You want the best possible pest control professional to help you deal with any potential problems that might crop up in your home or on your property, but how do you choose the right one? Many companies, Hopper Environmental included, carry certifications and awards like “Certified Quality Pro Company”, but what does a distinction like that really mean?
The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) seeks to let potential customers know which exterminators are at the top of their game and which ones should be left in the dust. Quality Pro is one of their available distinctions. It’s only available to NPMA member companies, and it’s an industry leading certification. It is truly the mark of excellence when it comes to pest management. They don’t simply hand it out to any company that asks for it, though. Instead, companies like Hopper Environmental Services have to meet a number of standards before they can be certified Quality Pro. While the actual list of standards is fairly long, among them are the fact that the business has to be a good environmental steward, and the employees of that company have to study their extensive manual and pass rigorous testing requirements in order to remain employed.
You want a company that truly knows how to deal with pests, but you also want one that understands pest management technology is changing rapidly. In order to do the best to eliminate pests and protect the environment, you have to stay on top of that technology while meeting the ongoing needs of your customers simultaneously. Quality Pro certification helps customers to understand that the company in question is doing just that.
Hopper Environmental Services is proud of our Quality Pro designation. We work to be the best in the area when it comes to pest management of all types, and we’d love to show you just how good we are. To learn more or to schedule a consultation, please contact us today.
