Every industry poses pest control challenges, but multi-unit rental housing properties are unique among commercial pest control clients. Unlike in other businesses where customers play less of a role in day-to-day operations, property managers and landlords must coordinate with tenants who reside in the property full-time. Those renters may or may not follow pest control best practices or maintain sufficient levels of compliance to keep pests away.
Your multi-unit facility pest control team must be reliable and highly effective. Pest-End checks off both boxes and adds another: We back up our work with our industry-leading service warranty. That means if any pests covered by your program return in between our regular service visits, we’ll return at no additional charge.
Part of the job of managing apartment and rental complexes is to keep costs down while bringing up your bottom line. However, if there’s one area a property manager should never cut corners, it’s pest management.
And yet, that doesn’t stop some property managers from trying. Not only do those properties run the risk of incurring devastating additional costs, but such cost-cutting measures can also put people’s health and safety at heightened risk and could run amok of local laws.
We get it—as a property manager, you want to control costs as much as possible without negatively impacting tenants. The problem with trying to save money on pest control, however, is that the repercussions can be devastating.
Not only are the health and safety of your tenants at risk, but all of the states in our coverage area have stringent laws and regulations surrounding multifamily housing pest control, and violations have serious consequences, financial and otherwise.
Not only do your tenants not want to see pests, but they also don’t want to see any pest control measures, either. When we service your multifamily housing facility, we’ll try to avoid setting traps or bait stations where residents can see them. We understand that tenants want a pest-free building, which means not even thinking about pests. You can leave that up to us.
People live full-time in multifamily housing facilities, which means there’s a constant supply of two things pests need: food and water. These are the specific pests you’re most likely to see in a New England rental setting:
Of course, this particular squatter is on every property manager’s no-rent list: bed bugs. No need to worry—we monitor for bed bugs if you choose to include coverage in your service plan. If you do, we’ll handle bed bug problems when they arise.
It can be hard to stay on top of every unit in a multifamily housing complex and to coordinate with every tenant, but after 40 years in the commercial pest control business, it’s what we’re good at. We keep apartment complexes free of pests in Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine so apartment managers can focus on running the business. Also, just like you, we work in the same New England communities where we live, so we’re just as invested as you are.
The first thing we’ll do is draft an individualized plan for your facility’s particular needs. Still, for most of our multifamily residential clients, our service is centered around these common steps:
With all the move-ins and move-outs, maintenance requests, grounds keeping schedules, lost key replacements, and everything else you deal with as a property manager, the last thing you need to worry about is pest control. That’s we back up our work with Pest-End’s industry-leading service warranty. If a covered pest problem develops in between our regular service visits, we’ll come back and treat, free of charge.
