Unless you have a pet store, you probably don’t want to see a mouse running around your place of work. And the truth is that rodents are much more than just a nuisance, their presence can lead to serious financial consequences for your business and, of course, your health.
Damage to your building
Did you know that rat teeth never stop growing? To prevent them from becoming too long, rodents need to find materials to gnaw and wear their teeth. Unfortunately, if one of these hides in your company, can select electrical wires, furniture and even walls as a toy. This can not only cause unpleasant damage to your property, it can also cause fires and various problems with the electrical system.
Loss of customer confidence
Your company’s reputation can be put at risk if customers see rodents or other evidence of an infestation in your space. This situation can be especially harmful for companies involved in food preparation or service, as no one wants to eat something from a rat-infested kitchen. Especially in the era we live in today, this kind of incident to your reputation can grow even more as more and more people share the news online.
If you store food, it is very likely that rodents will contaminate the food with urine and feces. If these contaminated products are consumed by people, there is the possibility of contracting one of several diseases, including leptospirosis, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, salmonellosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, among others.
In addition, people can get sick simply by inhaling air and dust contaminated with rodent urine or feces.
It is important to solve the problem
Once an infestation starts, it is unlikely to go away without professional help. In fact, the problem can get much worse as rats are able to multiply quickly. This is why it is so important that preventive measures are implemented and that action be taken immediately when evidence of an infestation is discovered.
