Pest Threats to Multifamily Housing

Multifamily property managers are responsible for ensuring their properties are profitable, properly maintained and that their tenants have a quality living experience.

Part of this responsibility should include minimizing the risk of pest threats to their buildings to ensure a pest free living environment for their tenants.

Any pest infestation involving rodents, ants, bed bugs and roaches will have a negative impact on the relationship between a tenant and owner and may become very costly to solve and control. Presto-X offers complete pest protection for multifamily housing.

Impact of Pests in Multifamily Housing

No property manager ever wants to have to deal with a pest problem. Often poor management will result in rent reductions or high vacancy rates.

Unfortunately, multifamily housing is particularly susceptible to pest problems due to the multiple entry points into a building. Indoor access for pests becomes even greater when there are structural defects in a building due to poor management.

Potential Impact of a Pest Infestation:

Pests pose a serious health and safety threat with the potential to contaminate food, transmit pathogenic germs and cause a lot of damage to equipment and buildings.

Rodents gnawing on wires can short-circuit electrical systems and corrosive pigeon droppings can cause costly damage to a building’s exterior.

The negative impact of pests in multifamily housing include:

  • Termination of leases
  • Vacancies leading to revenue loss
  • Compensation claims
  • High cost of delayed pest control treatments
  • Maintenance and repair costs
  • Damaged reputation of property manager
