COVID 19 NOTICE
During this challenging time, we want to provide you with an update on our response to the COVID-19 coronavirus health emergency.
Home and workplace hygiene is more important than ever and as a provider of essential pest and hygiene services, our entire organisation is focused on our ability to supply our hygiene and pest-control services to you to support you through this time.
The health and safety of our employees and customers will always be our primary concern. We have Business Contingency Plans in place to safeguard all parties as well as ensuring service continuity for you, our customers. Pest Control Brisbane Wide follows the recommendations of the authorities and we will continue to monitor the status of the outbreak and seek guidance from public health officials and government agencies. When needed, we will provide updates on the situation.
New procedures have been implemented to reduce the risk of infection for our employees and you as a customer:
- Our employees are conscious about hand hygiene between each customer visit
- Our employees avoid hand greeting with you as a customer
- Our staff can wear disposable gloves and a mask throughout the visit
- Our staff will keep a distance of 1.5 meters from you to avoid the risk of infection
- Our staff will try to adjust the visit to the customers’ wishes when and where possible
PRIOR TO SERVICE:
Important Information Concerning Your Pest Management Program
Health and Safety Information
- A technician will call you 30 minutes prior to arrival to confirm someone is home, if there is no answer the technician will not attend the property regardless of booking. Please ensure that the correct contact number is provided. If you miss the technicians phone call rescheduling can be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You must advise us of any pets or of any family/staff allergies, or other concerns.
- Any persons who are particularly sensitive, or who suffer from allergic reactions, should, as a matter of precaution, remain out of the premises for a period of 24 hours and not return until after the premises have been fully ventilated.
- You must remove or protect any people, animals, birds or fish during the treatment period.
- Should you suspect anyone has come into contact with a treated area and has been affected in any way contact the Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26 and have this notice with you.
- You must cover all food items and all food utensils.
- You must ensure general housekeeping is carried out and maintain the home as neatly as possible afterward for long-term results.
- You must ensure loose items are cleared around the floor areas throughout the home. Our technician must avoid spraying on top of the personal items including clothes, toys, shoes, stored materials, etc. and it will reduce the efficiency of your treatment.
- You must avoid contact with treated surfaces until the insecticide has dried. This could take one (1) to three (3) hours in some cases.
- On external treatments close all doors and windows during the treatment and keep closed until the odour has cleared. This could take one (1) to three (3) hours in some cases. This is done to avoid any odour entering the building.
- You must observe any verbal advice provided by our firm or our licensed operator at the time of treatment.
- You must ensure your premises are properly ventilated after treatment. Leave any air-conditioners on ‘vent mode’ (so they circulate outside air into the building) for a period of at least four hours after the treatment or after re-occupying.
- Water Tanks: No treatment can be carried out around water tanks not fully sealed or to water collection areas. You must advise us of water tanks installations.
Treatment Details and Control Agents
- Only control agents approved by the Department of Primary Industry and Energy’s Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) and registered for use in the relevant State or Territory or in accord with a Permit issued by APVMA or State Authority will be used.
- While every care will be taken, Pest Control Brisbane Wide will not be held liable should staining of timbers, fabrics, wall coverings, floor coverings or any other articles occur.
- Our professional service is tailored for your home and our technician will assess the best areas, chemicals and methods to treat your property based on the environment and infestation levels found.
- You accept that this Pest Management program can be rendered ineffective if you fail to implement our recommended hygiene procedures, by making building and/or landscaping alterations, or by the introduction of conducive or infested materials.
Please contact us if you have any concerns or question.
