How to get rid of bugs in an office buildingIn the retail environment, the most important thing is your customers’ satisfaction and your reputation. But these can easily get damaged if you receive a complaint from a customer or a tenant regarding pest problems. That’s why you need a pest control provider that understands your specific needs. Pest control professionals provide commercial pest control services for office buildings, warehouse, storages, restaurant, bars, and stores. No matter what kind of business you have, it’s important to work with a good pest control professional. Here are a few recommendations to handle customer or tenant complaints regarding pest problems.

Who’s responsible for pest control, tenants or landlords?

A good landlord usually has a contract with a pest control service that maintains the structure. These arrangements should be included in the lease agreement because a landlord is responsible for maintaining livable conditions in a rental property. Tenants pay for pest control services if an infestation can be linked to tenant behavior. A pest exterminator can help the landlord determine the source of an infestation, so it’s easy to reveal who is going to be responsible for the bill. To prevent possible complaints you should consider adding a section about pest control into a lease agreement. The best way to handle tenant complaints regarding pest problems is to call a professional to determine what’s causing the infestation.
