Healthcare facilities are expected to be a clean environment and for good reason. No matter whether you work at a clinic or are a patient, everyone understands why healthcare facilities must meet strict requirements when it comes to cleanliness. Unfortunately, few places are more exposed to germs and illnesses than healthcare buildings, which contributes to the likelihood of pest infestations.
At Springer Professional Home Services, we know how crucial it is to maintain a clean healthcare facility that is free of pests, which is why we’re proud to provide environmentally sensitive and effective healthcare facilities pest control services.
Pests in healthcare facilities
Pest problems in healthcare-related buildings are significantly more serious than in other commercial buildings. Not only can they ruin a reputation, but some pests and insects also carry harmful diseases and filth that endangers patients and employees alike. Some facts about healthcare building pests include:
- Ants, bedbugs, cockroaches, ticks, fleas, mice, mosquitoes, rats, spiders, and other pests can all slip into buildings as people and deliveries come in and out. Pests can gain access in backpacks, boxes, delivery vehicles, and on people and their belongings.
- Pests are often filthy and can transmit a host of diseases, with effects ranging from minor discomfort to death.
- The conditions created by pests can lead to serious consequences for your patients and your facility.
