Flick Anticimex is dedicated to protecting your tenants from bad bacteria and pest invasions

What are the consequences of pest infestations?

There are a number of pests that affect both the tenant and the property. Rodents, cockroaches, spiders, ants and more common household pests seem harmless but the consequences of invasions by these kinds of pests include spreading of illnesses and ruining the integrity of food stored on the premises.

Pests that affect the integrity of the infrastructure include termites, possums, and rodents who not only devalue the property but can also cause structural damage, damage to the exterior of the home, and damage to the electrical wiring of the property. This leads to poor appearances and physical damage.

While there are no strict legal requirements, there are local government regulations for retirement homes, which should be aptly complied with.

What are the consequences for retirement homes that lack washroom hygiene?

Tenants in retirement homes should be comfortable in their homes; this includes when using their bathroom or washroom facilities. Bad bacteria build up and clogged pipes will most likely cause discomfort amongst residents. Plus, the bad bacteria build up will most likely result in unpleasant odours emitting from your washroom putting off staff and residents from utilising your facilities.

What are facilities most at risk of pest invasion?

  • Kitchen/Canteens/Cafeterias
  • Bathrooms/Washing areas
  • The exterior of the homes
  • Timber components of the property
