We understand that getting customers in the door is just the first step in running a successful retail business. Once they enter, you want to entice them to stay and look around, and then make a purchase. Nothing can chase them out the door quicker than cobwebs in the corners, flies or wasps buzzing around, or, the worst, a mouse running across the floor. If a customer sees a pest, you can be sure they will make a speedy departure.
No matter if you sell clothes, shoes, housewares, or hardware, your retail business can attract unwanted pests. Don’t take the risk. Contact the professionals at Northwest Pest Control to make sure your clothes are free from fabric-eating silverfish, your storage room isn’t home to a fuzzy family of mice, and your shelves aren’t crumbling under a bunch of tunneling termites.
We know what you think. You and your employees dutifully mop, dust, sweep, and wipe every day so pests are not a problem. But cleanliness is just one part of what keeps the many-legged, creepy crawlies away. Your floor may shine, but the backroom that’s filled with boxes and packing material is a bonanza for mice wanting to build a nest, or for termites that feed on pallets. Did you know silverfish crave cardboard? All those shipping and gift boxes you store are like an all-you-can-eat buffet! The breakroom where employees eat lunch likely has a trash can that, when filled with food scraps, can be just what cockroaches are seeking. And, let’s face it, every time the door opens or closes, any flying bugs can waltz right in behind your customers.
We recommend letting a professional pest control service regularly come to your retail establishment to inspect the premises for pests, eradicate any they find, and treat the space to prevent any further infestation. Our team is skilled at pest detection and determining where and how these unwanted visitors get into your place of business. Once we figure out the source of the problem, we can help you determine what changes to make to block the entryways and routes of any pest. It is often as simple as adding some weatherstripping around doors and windows, filling gaps around pipes or lines, or removing debris that sits outside your business.
We eliminate the pests we find with our environmentally friendly and EPA-approved pesticides so you can be assured your products won’t get covered in a toxic goo and the air your customers and employees breathe will remain safe. We can also work to accommodate your schedule because we understand the last thing you need potential customers to see is a pest control truck in the driveway or people spraying around your business.
