Here’s why you need regular pest control

Think of pest control as your first line of defense against tiny invaders that want to invade your home or office, destroy your property and probably rob you of hundreds or even thousands because of the damage they could potentially cause. However, if you have already seen rodent droppings, cockroaches or cockroach debris, you have already missed your window of opportunity when you could have prevented the problem before it had taken root. 

Some pests are easy to detect, like cockroaches and ants, but others like termites can stay out of sight for years under floorboards and inside walls, burrowing into and eating away the foundation of your property and racking up costly extermination and repair bills.  Here are a few more reasons why you need regular pest control:  

Pests cause diseases and other health issues 

Modern medicine may have lulled you into a false sense of security, but diseases and infections cause by rodents and bugs are far from eradicated. Many common pests like rats, ticks, mosquitoes and bedbugs carry dangerous diseases that can be transmitted to humans. Prevention is always better than control and the best and only way to protect your home and family is by making sure you carry out regular pest control.  

They destroy valuables 

Termites, carpenter ants, carpet beetles and silverfish are just a few of the creepy crawlies known for destroying household objects and they can be the most difficult to detect. Silverfish, for example, are tiny little bugs that live off of organic fibers – like your favorite book, a photo album of the kids or all those boxes you’ve been keeping in storage. The same goes for termites – most termite infestations go unnoticed for years and, by the time it’s visible, ridding the infestation is the least of a property owner’s concerns. 

Protect Food and Other Perishables 

Home and business owners know how important it is to keep pests and rodents away from food and other perishables. Nothing spells disaster like cockroaches in a restaurant kitchen on inspection day… 

Even the cleanest kitchens struggle with cockroaches in warm climates like Dubai, especially when produce companies are carting goods in and out and grease is piling up under the stove, behind the refrigerator and in other hard-to-reach places. You can’t afford to wait until it’s too late to tackle these nasty invaders – it could cost you your business or your family’s health. Protect yourself against meal moths, house ants, cockroaches, other pests and rodents by contacting PropertyePortal today. 

“Do-it-Yourself” Doesn’t Cut It 

We all love a good DIY project, but keeping your home or business pest-free is likely to fail. Over-the-counter pest control products are usually a gimmick, always failing to meet the manufacturer’s promises and, at best, only put a Band-Aid on the real problem. Instead of wasting money buying repetitive treatments and subjecting your family to “bug bombs” and other ineffective products, invest in regular pest prevention from PropertyePortal’s numerous service providers. We’ll save you money in the long run—and the peace of mind is priceless. 

Stress-Free is the Way to Be 

Pests and rodents make everyone miserable. Nobody wants to wake up to cockroaches on the kitchen counters or moths eating their favorite blouse. Sometimes the smallest pests are the most stressful, as anyone that’s experienced a termite infestation will tell you. PropertyePortal offers flexible, low-cost pest control plans and regular inspections that will keep your family happy and healthy. Contact us to schedule a free inspection.
