Disinfection Service

Even after a pest infestation has been eliminated, the bacteria and viruses contained in their waste could still be left behind. That is why PestControl.co.uk offers a disinfection service, to give you the peace of mind that your property is completely safe from the effects of pests.

Dangers of Pests

Most pests have the ability to bring harmful pathogens in to your home or place of business. Mice and rats are two of the worst offenders in this regard, leaving their droppings and urine wherever they go.

Rodents, birds and insects can all spread diseases such as E.Coli, Salmonella and Hantavirus. These, and others, can cause very serious illness.

The pathogens left behind in the waste of pests can spread in a number of ways. These include:

  • Skin contact. If your skin comes in to contact with faeces or urine, while cleaning for example, then harmful bacteria or viruses could be passed on to you. This is a particular danger if it you have an open wound.
  • Airborne particles. Some allergens can become airborne and be breathed in.
  • Contaminated food. Any food that pests may have come in to contact should be disposed of as this can easily be contaminated. You may not notice if the food has been affected if you do not find any signs of gnawing, however it may still have waste products on it.

This is carried out by one of our pest control technicians who will spray the affected area with a biocidal product. We use a product which is not corrosive or staining. It is safe to use on plastics, fabrics and soft metals. Most importantly perhaps, it is also food-safe.

When the disinfection service has been completed, the area will be ready for normal usage again.

Getting Rid of Pests

Before the disinfection service is carried out of course, it is important that all of the pests have been eliminated or removed first. If that has not been done then they can leave behind more hazardous waste, meaning that the area would have to be disinfected again.

The pest control technicians from PestControl.co.uk are fully trained to get rid of any pest infestation, whether it be rodents, insects, birds or anything else. We will also be able to ascertain when the infestation has been completely eliminated, which will then be the appropriate time to take advantage of the disinfection service.
