Commercial Sanitation Tips For Effective Pest Control in Guelph

It doesn’t matter if you have a small business or a giant one. Your workplace is a reflection of yourself as well as your company or business. The last thing you want for your visiting guests or customers is to believe that your business is working in a pest-infested building. It is a bad perception for your entire work environment, and it lowers your standards. This is why you need to keep a sharp eye on your commercial building. Here are some commercial sanitation tips for effective pest control in Guelph.

Don’t Hold The Trash

Garbage is the most attractive thing for pests. There is no categorizing of pests when it comes to garbage, and it is a free buffet for all types of pests to feast on when you are away. When your employer throws the leftover food items in the trash, it automatically becomes a pest meal. Anything in the trash is a fair game. Even worse, the leftover crumbs that often go unnoticed are more than enough to feed a swarm of different bugs.

Just make sure you throw the trash as soon as it fills the bins and try not to let the lid open because the smell is the major factor that attracts the pests.

Outside Dumpsters

Now let’s take a look at your outside dumpster situation. Some workplaces have huge dumpsters outside the workplace that store all week’s garbage and are cleaned once or twice a week. What happens is that all that gathered dump in the dumpster starts to create a bad odour and, in fact, an open invitation to all kinds of pests. It also lures the pests inside your building, even if you don’t have any garbage inside. That is when you need a service for cockroach removal, ant removal, or similar services. You can request the dumpster service to clean it regularly so that you don’t face this issue.


One of the biggest ways pests sneak inside your building is through the luring smells. Unlike humans, pests have special hearing and smelling senses which leads them directly to their food source. The food source could be anything. Even your furniture is a great food source for termites. Once the pests sneak inside through holes and cracks, eliminating them could become a huge problem. Workplaces often have vending machines, and due to poor maintenance, these machines become leaky, leaving part of the area damp. These damp areas could also become an attraction to pests. To keep your building pest-free, we suggest you take care of all the damp places outside and inside and spray any pest repellent spray or at least sanitize to keep these areas clean.

Final Words

There is a good chance you may already experience pest problems that led you here in the first place. You could contact a good pest control company to eliminate the infestation and ensure your employees’, customers’, and your own safety.
