When it comes to pest infestations, neither tenants nor property managers want them

Unfortunately, when pest problems occur, they not only result in unhappy tenants but also in property damage. At Pine State Pest Solutions, we know from our partnerships with many property management firms and landlords, pest infestations are a serious issue, and rather than distract from all the other responsibilities (i.e., resolving tenant complaints, evicting renters, repairing and maintaining the property, screening for new renters, etc.), it is best to let professionals take care of the pest management of the complex/property. In this article, we’ll address the problems associated with insect and rodent problems as well as discuss the advantages of securing a pest management program for apartment buildings and other multi-unit housing complexes

4 reasons why pests are a problem in Maine rental properties

  • Insects and rodents damage property from renters’ belongings to mechanical systems to actual structures
  • They jeopardize health by contaminating food and spreading disease
  • They rob tenants of their peace of mind and make them feel uncomfortable in their homes
  • Pests will not be confined to a single unit; they will spread to neighboring units if not treated properly or in a timely manner

For all these and other problems associated with pest infestations, it is in the best interest of property owners/managers to take care of pest problems before they escalate. 

Advantages of partnering with a pest control company

  • You don’t have to worry about pests damaging your building(s)
  • Your tenants are protected from bacteria, parasites, stings, and bites that cause illness, allergic reactions, or trigger asthma attacks
  • You don’t have to worry about a damaged reputation caused by insect and rodent infestations
  • Rather than being reactive and scrambling to find a pest control company, you have a team delivering proactive and preventative pest solutions including regular inspections and treatment
  • Your time is freed up to focus on other aspects of your property and property management business.

Pine State offers an affordable and effective solution for property managers and landlords

If you own or manage a multi-unit housing complex in Auburn, Portland, or elsewhere in Pine State Pest Solutions’ service area, our locally owned and operated pest control company would love the opportunity to eliminate and prevent pest activity in your units. 

In fact, we’ve developed a solution specifically for apartment buildings and other multi-unit housing complexes where we dispatch a fully licensed and highly trained pest control specialist to your location for a full day of inspection and treatment. While there, the technician will inspect as many units as possible and administer as many preventative services as necessary during the allotted timeframe. Upon completion, we’ll provide you with documentation that includes: 

  • What unit(s) were serviced
  • How well your tenant(s) cooperated with our tech
  • If your tenant(s) prepared for treatment
  • Details about the application of treatment and monitoring devices installed
  • Communication that we feed would be helpful for you as the property manager to know 

With our experienced team on the job, you don’t have to worry about a bed bug infestation spreading, cockroaches taking over, or other pests inflicting damage or jeopardizing health.
