When you spend the maximum time of your day at your workplace, it is important to keep it as clean as your home. Having pest in your office could push away your clients and possibly your employees as well. The simplest way to keep pest away in your workspace is by calling a pest control service or dealing with them on your own with these easy DIYs.
1. Seal the Deal
Pest, unlike humans, doesn’t require biometrics to enter your workspace. The tiniest of opening, cracks on walls, small holes are enough to give them full access to your office. The first step to keeping the pest away from your office is to ensure that your office exteriors are properly sealed. Focus on waterproofing your building and sealing holes and cracks with chalk and foam.
2. Clean Top
Eating lunch at the desk and keeping hot beverages on countertops is a common phenomenon in the office. What is not common is cleaning up after we are done; leaving behind stains and food particles for pest to feed on. Make it a point to keep your countertops and surface clean after every meal to keep pest away.
3. Tin/Pin the Bin
Having dustbins placed at close locations for you to dispose of your leftover food and cups will ensure a clean workspace at all time. Make sure to use a trash can with lid. Open trash is a free invitation for pest of all shape and size. Hence your rubbish shouldn’t stay in the trash can.
4. Clean Wash
Pest love spending time at office restroom as much as employees do. Having a clean restroom will ensure that other employees also keep it clean and that pest stay away. Make your maintenance team clean the restroom multiple times a day and ensure all leakages are fixed. It is important to have good restroom etiquette especially in a shared space, so educate your employees of their responsibility.
