WORKING WITH AN EXTERMINATOR FOR YOUR RESTAURANT
When you run a restaurant, your main concern is usually to satisfy your customers by offering them good food and quality service. However, there is another important aspect to consider when managing a restaurant: the safety of your establishment and your customers.
And when it comes to safety, one of the most important issues to keep an eye on is the infestation of pests. Insects and other nuisances can cause damage to property, but they can also be a source of illness and inconvenience for your customers. In fact, an infestation of insects in a restaurant can be extremely unpleasant for customers and can cause a loss of trust and credibility.
To avoid problems with cockroaches, rodents, house flies or drain flies, it is essential to work with a professional exterminator. A certified exterminator is able to quickly detect and treat any infestation of pests, which allows you to protect your restaurant and especially your customers.
Here are a few reasons why it is important to work with an exterminator for your restaurant:
Prevention of infestations
A professional exterminator will be able to help you prevent infestations of pests by putting prevention measures in place. This can include regular inspections of your establishment, the use of physical barriers to prevent pests from entering, and the use of humidity and temperature control systems to prevent the proliferation of pests.
A professional exterminator is trained to spot the signs of a pest infestation and can help quickly detect an infestation before it becomes serious. This allows you to quickly treat the problem and prevent the infestation from spreading to other parts of your establishment.
A professional exterminator will use effective treatment products and techniques to eliminate pests from your establishment. They are also able to advise you on measures to take to prevent future infestations.
It is important to note that working with a professional exterminator can also help you comply with food safety regulations for your establishment. By working with a qualified exterminator, you can be assured that your establishment meets the requirements of the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux (RACJ) and the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ).
Furthermore, in the event of a MAPAQ inspection, your exterminator can provide you with evidence of regular and effective treatments, which can be very useful in demonstrating that you are taking your responsibility to maintain a healthy and safe environment.
