Professional Disinfection Protects You from Pests and COVID-19

As destructive as pests may be, it isn’t their worst offense against us. The worst thing about them is that they’re prolific breeders that carry countless of nasty diseases wherever they go. As a matter of fact, they can spread sicknesses like wildfire! In their relentless search for food, water, and shelter, these critters typically spread around pathogens and bacteria. But with their great numbers, they can easily contaminate food and water sources with no less than their urine and faeces.

In a way, pest control isn’t just about exterminating vermin. When you think about it, getting rid of these disease carriers is a way to keep you and the family safe from sicknesses. You can still take it a step further, however, with professional disinfection.

Diseases Spread by Pests in Australia

Cockroaches, flies, rats, and birds are notorious for carrying bacteria inside and outside their bodies. That’s how they basically spread diseases as they go. Having them around your space can leave you vulnerable to a variety of illnesses, especially when these uninvited guests build their nests or colonies in your personal or workspace.

Speaking of illnesses, here are a few that some common pests are known to spread:

Flies – Cholera, dysentery, hepatitis, poliomyelitis, parasitic worms, salmonella, tuberculosis, typhoid fever
Cockroaches – Dysentery, gastroenteritis, hepatitis, salmonella, tuberculosis, typhoid fever
Birds – Aspergillosis, cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, salmonella
Rats – Favus, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, mouse typhoid, murine typhus fever, poliomyelitis, relapsing fever, Weil’s disease

Because pests are vectors of diseases, it’s among the biggest reasons why you need to act fast the moment you catch wind of their presence in a property. Leave them be and you could be making you, tenants, and family members susceptible to sickness.

This is why a pest disinfection team may be needed before and after each pest treatment. These professionals reduce the spread of infectious pathogens left behind by vermin by treating surfaces and allowing the sanitation products to dry and coat the said areas. With their disinfectant and sanitiser solutions tested against a wide range of germs and bacteria, disinfection has proven to be capable of protecting families and businesses from pests that are well-documented as disease carriers. Not only that but sanitisation has proven invaluable to establishments and residences in the midst of an ongoing global pandemic.

Professional Disinfection vs. COVID-19

At the moment, a major concern for both households and establishments is the continuing threat of SARS-CoV-2. This new strain of coronavirus has been a significant threat that has virtually held the entire global economy hostage and driven countries to a standstill in response to its deadly spread. Although the virus is relatively new, national and international health authorities have acknowledged the value of regular disinfection in stopping the spread of the 2019-nCoV.

Combine regular disinfection, social distancing guidelines, and good hygiene and you would be doing your part to effectively keep the novel coronavirus at bay. Keep in mind that the virus has been known to live on surfaces for hours or even days without adequate disinfecting. With professional sanitisation, you can have less worries that a part of your space harbours such a menacing organism. And with experts typically using environmentally friendly products, you can be sure that 99.9% of germs (including COVID-19) found on household and office surfaces will be neutralised without compromising you, your staff, or kin’s health.

The Need for Regular Disinfection

With pests carrying a variety of sicknesses and COVID-19 always lying in wait for its next victim, a disinfection service will be your shield and vanguard against these invisible threats. The sanitisation alone can effectively kill disease-causing pathogens and give you protection against viruses, moulds, bacteria, and fungi. Tap the service often and you can constantly protect yourself, your staff, or family (and pets) against major illnesses.

And since professionals aim for the highest standard of sanitising and use only the best disinfection equipment and products, you can trust that you can be protected from any unseen, microscopic invaders while being able to preserve surfaces e.g. plastics, fabrics, metals, etc. With disinfection done on the regular, you gain peace of mind that you and those you value will not fall victim to viral and bacterial pathogens.

Total Protection from Pest and Viruses

Getting rid of pests and minimising their threat doesn’t end with extermination because they leave behind a far bigger problem that is invisible to the naked eye. That’s why, after the pest problem is taken care of, you have to disinfect the property to eliminate all traces of the vermin. More importantly, professional disinfection also eliminates pathogens like the notorious novel coronavirus.

In the end, regular disinfection allows you to hit two birds with one stone. That’s the case when you take into account that pests bring with them viral and bacterial pathogens, a problem that only gets exacerbated when you add the deadly COVID-19 into the mix. Without a doubt, now is the best time to incorporate professional disinfection into your lifestyle so you continue to live or work in a place that is truly safe.
