You want your restaurants to have the best reputation for its quality of food, its atmosphere, and its hygiene standards.
Being held in high regard by the locals and having great reviews in food magazines or websites is also going to enhance your business.
It takes years to build up a good reputation in this industry
But let me tell you how it can be destroyed in a matter of minutes and how it’s possible to cut your customer base by half within a week and three quarters in a month . . . .
Just one sighting of a Rat or mouse or cockroach on your premises.
That is actually if you are lucky – if you’re unlucky and you make someone ill the consequences are far more serious. Your customer base could disappear altogether, your restaurant closed down and you could face criminal charges
Pests don’t just give people food poisoning they also spread a variety of diseases too numerous to list and public health inspectors are acutely aware of this. When they identify a real risk to the public health they will have no hesitation in closing the premises down, after all – their own reputation is on the line.
Prevention is better than cure
Many restaurants when they first take up an annual contract with us don’t have an existing pest problem. The fact is they don’t want one. As well as dealing with pests we also employ preventative measures to make sure you are not their next target.
It’s a sad fact that many restaurant owners are unaware that it is actually a legal requirement to keep their premises free from pests. The truth is you have a choice whether to do it yourself or hire a professional pest control company. However, health inspectors much prefer you hire a professional pest controller.
Why choose Dead Efficient pest control?
Because no matter how much you think you know about killing pests we know more. We deal with the whole range of pests on a daily basis. We have to go on regular courses and pass exams to operate.
The general public cannot buy the pesticides we can because we have to be licenced to the supplier with recognised certification.
We’ve seen it all before – This is what we do – members of the public are familiar with mice, rats, cockroaches, bedbugs etc even if they don’t know how to deal with them properly. But what about other infestations such as biscuit beetles, firebrats, wooly bears (a type of carpet beetle) flour mites, indianmeal moths, bean weevils. or cluster flies? Our comprehensive annual business contracts cover all these.
How much is an annual contract?
Depending on the size and condition of the restaurants here are the prices beginning from a small outlet, then the price increases as the size does.
Takeaways from £420 a year
Restaurants from £440 a year
That’s less than £1.50 a day! And if you’re smart – the next time you change your menu or restructure your prices add another 20p to one of your dishes, sell 5 of them a day and you’ve covered the cost of your pest control.
We also have a deal for restaurants with an existing pest problem.
Normally with most pest control companies you would pay to get rid of the existing problem (commercial premises start at £150) and then sign up to a contract – so you pay to get rid of the pest and then you pay for the ongoing protection of the contract.
What we do:
If you call us for an existing infestation we will get rid of that for free as long as you sign up to a contract for a minimum of a year – after a year you can cancel it anytime you want. (normally our contracts can be cancelled anytime for any reason with no penalty whatsoever – even in the first year).
It’s a golden rule for food businesses – You can’t afford NOT to have pest control
