Keeping your restaurant pest-free is important for health and safety purposes. From your kitchen and food prep areas to dining areas, your entire restaurant shouldn’t have pests roaming around. You can take the following steps to keep bugs and rodents at bay and have our NJ pest control service take additional pest prevention measures.
Maintain a Clean Environment
Crumbs, spills, and other sources of food can attract mice, rats, cockroaches, ants, and other pests. You should sweep the floors and wipe counters and other surfaces regularly to eliminate food particles. Make sure you clean up spills right away as well. Keep food stored in sealed containers that pests can’t get into.
Check for Pest Entry Points
Look around for any gaps that rodents and insects can use to get into your restaurant. Seal up these openings to stop them from getting in. Keep in mind that these pests can get inside through the tiniest openings.
Keep Outdoor Cans and Dumpsters Clean
Use trash can liners and avoid putting too much garbage in dumpsters or trash cans outside. Otherwise, rodents and insects can get into them and build nests nearby.
Inspect deliveries to make sure you’re not bringing pests into your restaurant. You should also make sure you use up ingredients before they spoil, and toss any that are spoiled or contaminated.
