A company’s success and reputation depend heavily on the trust and loyalty of its customers, employees, partners, vendors and suppliers. Long hours of work and boundless dedication are required to develop, build and maintain a credible brand and a good reputation.
However, the image projected by a company can quickly become negative due to a pest problem or even a simple mouse spotted by a customer. The saying “There is no such thing as bad publicity” is not actually true! In today’s digital world, reviews, stories and images spread instantly and can haunt you for many years.
Find out how an exterminator can help you safeguard your company’s reputation.
How do pest problems affect a company’s reputation?
Pests can damage a company’s reputation in many ways. Some pests such as cockroaches and rats pose serious health risks to employees and customers by, for example, contaminating the surfaces they come in contact with. These pests are often carriers of infectious agents that they will spread in their path. They can also make your workplace or facilities dangerous by causing structural or electrical damage.
Pest problems can also affect the productivity and morale of your staff by being a nuisance or causing anxiety. Your employees will talk to others outside your organization about their work environment, which can affect your chances of recruiting new employees.
Suppliers, vendors and associates will not want to work with you because your workplace, warehouse, facilities or stores are dangerous, unhealthy or contaminated. They will not want to risk losing their own reputation.
In short, infestation problems discourage people from doing business with you or working for you.
The provision of a commercial pest management service
Many business owners think that it is enough to have the phone number of a pest control company on file and only call it when they have a serious problem. However, the reality is quite different. True commercial pest control is a partnership between a company and a professional exterminator.
It is important that the commercial extermination company you choose knows all of your activities, processes, products, services, customers, culture and needs. With this information, its technicians will be able to develop a personalized action plan adapted to your needs and business processes.
It will then be able to offer you:
- An inspection of your premises
- An assessment of the current situation
- A list of pest control gaps in your company
- A continuous and intelligent plan for pest treatment and monitoring
