Pest infestation is a major problem of many businesses. It causes a significant amount of damage to your property, raw materials and products. Rats alone cause billions of dollars in property damage that result to increase of unplanned expenses each year. These expenses can be attributed to maintenance repair costs, and costs of replacing damaged goods. Pest problems also affect the employees’ morale.
Aside from this, your company may suffer from irreversible reputational damage that could result in loss of business.

I remember an instance in a café that I frequent. I usually do my business meetings there but at time, I was alone crunching some number. As I was enjoying my cup of coffee al fresco, I was terrified to see a little roach crawling. I almost jumped off my seat. I immediately pulled the manager, which happened to be a close friend, and whispered about the critter outside.
I was relieved that he called the nearest pest control Portland OR company. The pest problem has been resolved and his café’s reputation saved.
I have also encountered some businesses in Portland that have an increased maintenance repair cost due to termite infestation. I found out that it was out of sheer neglect. I find it unbelievable that the business administrator did not contract a pest control company in Portland OR. I think they should have at least pest-proofed the building even if they are not using it in the meantime.
