At Flick Anticimex, we know that property and strata managers are just looking for reliable and drama free pest control companies.
As property and strata managers, you strive towards keeping your properties hygienically clean and free from pest infestation. This will not only keep tenants happy but will generate positive word of mouth, establish a professional brand reputation and potentially bring in new tenants.
What are the consequences of a pest infestation?
Mice, rats, birds, insects or other pests cause damage to real estate each year and thus generate unnecessary costs. Typical consequences often include:
- Unnecessary costs for repairs and refurbishment
- Potential damage to reputation and negative tenant reviews
- Constant vacancies – need to lower rent to compensate
If there is a pest infestation in one of your properties, it will disturb tenants and generate vast costs. Additionally, your reputation may suffer a severe blow and lead to tenants demanding a reduced rent for circumstances you as the owner or manager of the property failed to deal with.
Legally speaking, it is the responsibility of property and strata managers to organise appropriate pest preventative measures. Local councils are usually involved when a tenant makes a complaint, so before a tenant has to report your business, call Flick Anticimex!
What are the areas of your property most at risk?
Like any other residential property, pests will be attracted to areas with easy access to food, shelter, and water. This means that both the exterior and interior of your properties are vulnerable to pest invasions.
For the exterior, pests can find access through:
- Holes in roofs
- Cracks in the foundation
- Leaking pipes and air conditions units
For the interior, pests are frequently found in the followings areas:
- In between wall cavities or in the case of termites, in the structure of the home and wooden floor boards
- Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms – areas with moisture
- Cracks and crevices in the walls and ceilings
- In dark areas like the garage with boxes and packaging material
