Pest Control For Rental Properties

Posted on: 20 August 2015

Owning an apartment complex or a rental property of any kind can be a very hard job. There is a lot of maintenance that is involved in taking care of these properties. One of the most important things is making sure that a rental property is inviting and that people will want to move into it. If the apartment is dirty, run down, and is infested with mice or other pests, you will have a hard time filling it. In order to make sure that the apartment is pest free, you will want to hire a professional pest control company that can come in and remove and prevent any bugs or rodents. Below are some of the things that a pest control company can do to help your rental property.

  1. Prevention. The best thing that you can do it to prevent the pests from getting in the rental in the first place. A pest control company can come to your rental property and seal any areas where mice or bugs might enter. Holes in the foundation, chimneys that are open, and piping that enters the property can all be potential entry points. By inspecting and sealing these points of entry, you tenants will have a rental that is free from pests.
  2. Extermination. If you already have a pest problem, the pest control company can come into your rental and exterminate the problem. They will be able to kill mice, roaches, ants, and spiders. They will often use poisons, traps, or chemical fumigations that can kill all kinds of pests. This will ensure that when potential tenants enter the property, they will be more likely to rent it out.
  3. Education. Another important thing that a pest control company can help you do is to educate your tenants. A simple printout that demonstrates how to keep pests out of the home can go a long way. Reminding them to keep doors and windows closed, to keep food off of the floors and to seal food in the pantries can discourage mice and ants from entering the home. Educating the tenants will help pests from entering the rental property in the future, which will make everyone happier.

These are just a few of the ways that a pest control company will be able to help keep your rental property clean and free from pests. It will make your tenants happier and will keep your rentals full.

Everyone Deserves a Little Luxury in Their Home

When I was growing up, my parents worked very hard to make ends meet for my family and we lived in a small, basic home. After I landed my first job as an adult, I purchased my first home. When I got a promotion at work, my salary increased dramatically and I started dreaming of having my bathroom remodeled to give it a "luxury spa" feeling. I felt guilty having a luxury spa in my home when my parents still lived in the same small home they raised us in, so I had their bathroom turned into a "luxury spa" as well! It felt great being able to "pay it back" to them for all the hard work they did in raising our family. I am looking into other home remodeling projects now, and I want to share what I am learning with others who would need the information!
