How we manage pests in office buildings
Upon the arrival of the pest exterminator, an extensive inspection of the office will be conducted to locate any existing or potential pest infestation. Pest technicians check for holes and potential entry points
Once this has been completed, the pest specialist will determine the most effective and least toxic method to eliminate the infestation. Depending on the type of pest, treatment methods will vary
The technician will inspect the premises shortly after the initial treatment to determine any signs of pest activity. If such a problem persists, the pest team will proceed with further treatment
To keep your office pest-free, we follow up with a pest prevention program. In addition to the services provided, a comprehensive written report will be provided as part of the service

Pest control for office buildings
Office premises provide numerous places for pests to live and hide, undetected and undisturbed - raised computer floors, storage cupboards, document archives room, canteens, etc. Depending on the layout and size of an office building, pest infestations may also occur, with specific office configurations providing ideal breeding conditions for pests.
Any infestation in your office building can cause distress and upset your staff and visitors. Furthermore, pests can cause significant damage to your building, wiring, equipment, and supplies. Mice and rats are particularly fond of wires and cabling. A mouse's rapidly growing teeth require constant gnawing, so telephone, internet, and computer cables are perfect. An effective approach to combating office pest infestations is understanding pests' behaviour and proactively monitoring the premises. Keeping offices pest-free is our speciality; we can ensure that your business complies with all Health and Safety regulations.
Your office building will be protected using Fantastic Pest Control and pest prevention services. We can ensure that your premises remain pest-free and hygienic whether your business is located in a large commercial building or has a small office on its own. We are proud of our highly trained team of professional pest control technicians with extensive experience identifying and eliminating various pests, such as insects and rodents.

Mice, black, and brown rats are common pests in office buildings, and it is known that rats carry diseases. A rat or mouse chewing on pipes, wiring, or cabling can damage vital IT, computer, or electrical installations - disrupting business and damaging furniture, fixtures, fittings, and even the walls. We provide safe and humane office pest control services to ensure health and safety regulations compliance.
Cockroaches in the office - Cockroaches are notorious for infesting kitchens and washrooms. Since they feed at night, an infestation may go unnoticed until it has spread widely. They can quickly spread to dark and secluded areas within office buildings through ventilation shafts, pipes, and cable trays. What makes cockroaches love offices is the variety of food they can get. There is a growing need for a comprehensive approach to office pest control among corporate clients. Our service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and pest control emergency service.

It's nice to share lunch or snacks with colleagues, but the food left overnight may attract ants. Our certified pest technicians' methods to control ants are targeted to eliminate any ant species. We can handle ant infestation in your office quickly, and we will use a pest control product that is harmless to your staff and office environment.
