Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions are the people to contact if you have a pest control problem in your care home. Our technicians provide a fast, expert service which meets all the latest health and safety legislation.
We work throughout the two counties, including in Colchester, Chelmsford, Harwich and Ipswich. We use discreet, unmarked vans to avoid any damage to your reputation.
Eradicating Bed Bugs
As well as new residents arriving, care homes can get a lot of visitors, such as residents’ friends or family members, and also outside contractors who may need to carry out work on the premises. The number of people entering the homes means they can be a breeding-ground for bed bugs, which cause itching and irritate the skin. The bugs can be found in any part of a room, and not necessarily just in beds.
Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions will dismantle any affected furniture to isolate any bed bugs. We employ environmentally-friendly insecticides and steam in our bed bug treatments, and will make at least two return visits to make sure your bed bug problem has disappeared.
Food Preparation Areas
As care homes prepare meals for their residents, their kitchens, food stores and food preparation areas can often harbour pests. These include ants, which can be attracted to protein-rich foods, like meat, cheese, and sweet items.
Cockroaches can also flourish in laundries as well as kitchens, while mice and rats can also thrive in or near food preparation areas. Birds can also be an issue in waste disposal areas, where flies and wasps can also cause problems, especially in the summer months.
Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions provide expert pest control solutions, all tailored to fit the particular problems your care home is experiencing, with the safety of residents and staff our top priority. We are experts in rodent control and prevention and dealing with all other types of pest.
Complying with Legislation
Care homes are covered by a variety of regulations to protect staff and residents, including the Public Health Act, the Health and Social Care Act, and those laid down by the Care Quality Commission, an independent watchdog which carries out regular inspections of care homes and issues publicly-available ratings. At Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions we will help make sure that you are fully compliant with all the latest legislation relating to pest control.
We carry out our work as quickly as possible, without compromising on our high safety standards. We appreciate that you want any pest problem resolved quickly to minimise the inconvenience to staff and residents.
