What is a Commercial Pest and Building Inspection?

A commercial pest and building inspections are a thorough assessment of a commercial property’s structural integrity and susceptibility to pest infestations. Conducted by qualified inspectors, these inspections involve a detailed examination of both the interior and exterior of the building to identify any existing or potential issues that may compromise its safety, functionality, or hygiene standards.

Why is a Commercial Pest and Building Inspection Required?

For businesses, maintaining a safe and pest-free environment is essential not only for the well-being of employees and customers but also for compliance with health and safety regulations. A commercial pest and building inspection can provide valuable insights into the condition of the property, allowing business owners to address any issues promptly and prevent costly repairs or pest-related problems in the future.

What's Covered in a Commercial Pest and Building Inspection?

Proper moisture control and ventilation are crucial for preventing mould growth and maintaining indoor air quality. We evaluate the property's moisture levels and ventilation systems to identify any issues that may contribute to mould or other indoor air quality problems.

Compliance with Regulations

Our inspections also include an assessment of the property's compliance with relevant building codes, regulations, and industry standards. We provide recommendations for addressing any deficiencies and ensuring compliance with applicable requirements.
