We all know the UK has been hit by strikes leading to overflowing rubbish and increased littering and fly tipping recently. We spoke about the long- and short-term effects of this and one of the biggest concerns is that it encourages vermin in cities and residential areas.
However this is an ongoing issue and while it may be more prevalent at the moment or in recent weeks, it can happen throughout the year, especially in vacant properties.
Realistically speaking, pest control is a major problem throughout the UK. When not checked regularly, vacant properties can quickly become overrun with a host of pests including, rats, cockroaches, and fleas, presenting a number of problems for landlords:
- Damage to fabric of building (eg, chewed timber, cables)
- Unhygienic – pests and their faeces are significant disease vectors
- Increases re-let times, reducing revenue and increasing costs
- Risk of infestation spreading – widening community impact
- Legal requirement to ensure property is pest free
Fully trained and certified SPS pest control operatives use the latest technologies and methods to eradicate infestations within 24 hours with minimal disruption. Using dedicated teams means the situation is not only handed in the short term but ensures that a long term issue does not persist.
We eradicate all common pests, including:
- Bed Bugs
Like we said, not only does SPS eradicate your current pest problems, we are able to help eliminate future problems, and advise on pest control strategies. As an initial measure, you should arrange for regular inspections to take place in vacant properties – daily, weekly, monthly – whatever you feel is necessary. We can then suggest other fixed measures to ensure pest control is handled properly and professionally, giving you peace of mind for your vacant property.
