Residential and Commercial Pest Control: What's the Difference?

The difference between residential and commercial pest control often boils down to the time frame that you have for taking action and what can happen if you allow a pest infestation to linger.

Residential pest control is usually a fairly straightforward process. You simply contact Oliver Exterminating Services San Juan corporate office to schedule an appointment.

Oliver Exterminating Services offers pest control, wildlife control, and lawn care services to residents of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Actually, Oliver is one of the most experienced and certainly one of the largest private pest control operations active in the region today.

The Residential Pest Control Process 

With residential pest control, you can expect a comprehensive initial inspection followed by environmentally friendly approaches to take care of today’s problems (i.e., corrective pest control) and keep pest control issues at bay in the future (i.e., preventive pest control).

The end goal is protecting the investment you have in your home and keeping you and your family safe. There are no binding contracts to sign and callbacks between services come at no additional charge so you can have peace of mind in knowing that there are experienced professionals a mere phone call away.

Residential pest control often means having a protective barrier placed around your home to prevent or eliminate insect entry, wildlife control services for immediate problems, and receiving advice on how best to seal your home against pests.

In some respects, as you’ll see in a minute, residential pest control is somewhat simpler than commercial pest control in that residential pest control is about keeping your home and family safe. Period.

With commercial pest control, though, you’re talking about more moving parts and things to protect. Although the consequences of not dealing with fleas and ticks with flea and tick control can definitely be disastrous for your family, a business owner that fails to deal with a pest control issue could lose everything.

Commercial Pest Control: What’s at Stake and How Best to Protect Your Business Investment 

The reason that commercial pest control is seen as slightly more complicated than residential pest control is that commercial pest control includes many different kinds of businesses and industries.

You could be talking about a nursing home in Puerto Rico, a restaurant in the Dominican Republic, a franchise location at a hotel chain, or a brick-and-mortar storefront that’s being overtaken by a rodent infestation.

So, you’re potentially talking about many different kinds of industries. Of course, that also means that you’re talking about different kinds of inspections and health challenges.

If you’re working within the catering and hospitality industry, an unchecked pest control issue could mean thousands of sick customers due to food poisoning. After that, a passing grade from a health inspector might be the least of your issues.

Bed bugs can also afflict hotel owners if they’re not careful. Even in a warehouse environment, failing to deal with a pest control issue immediately could mean thousands of dollars lost in the value of damaged goods. A business reputation, once hit, might never recover.

Pest Control to Fit Unique Industries

Oliver Pest Control has engineered and tested pest control methods to serve the needs of professionals in a variety of different industries, including office buildings, universities, restaurants, schools, warehouses, transport, distribution, and many more.
