If you manage a luxury hotel, there’s no quicker way to hurt your reputation, then having a pest infestation discovered by guests.
The hospitality industry is particularly vulnerable to all sorts of pests. This is due to the easy transportation of bed bugs from overnight visitors or cockroaches find ways to enter the building.
That’s why having proper commercial pest control in place is important. Your guests deserve the absolute best sleeping conditions when staying away from home, and that’s what they’ll expect from your hotel.

We Educate Your Staff To Identify Infestations
As part of pest prevention, we can also help educate your staff and help them identify common pests, and how to stop them from infesting your building.
The nocturnal German cockroach, for example, is found in stuffy and moist environments. They can breed quickly and can stay undetected for a long time which means eliminating an infestation can become problematic.
But here at Viking we can provide both immediate relief and long-term protection, while also informing staff on how to avoid an infestation.
Bed bugs are a hotel’s worst nightmare. After all, nobody wants to pay to spend the night in a hotel only to leave with marks on their bodies.
As bed bugs can transport, unfortunately, even the cleanest of hotels are prone to bed bug infestations as guests often bring them in via suitcases or clothes. Bed bugs can be found in the smallest of gaps and cervices in and around carpets, mattresses, nightstands, and curtains.
These pests can even move from room to room via walls, travel bags, or laundry bags. So, it is important that preventative measures such as educating staff members on how to spot bed bugs are taken before a guest has an unpleasant experience with an infestation.
Flies are common too, especially in hotel restaurants or cafes where food is served. Not only are they unsanitary, but they’re annoying too!
With our insect program, we begin our pest control service outside to locate the breed of fly and the feeding areas.
Then, we’ll explain to staff members how to ensure restaurant pest control is taken care of, and how to guarantee the entire hotel offers a pest free environment for guests.
As each of these pests has unique attributes, it can make total extermination difficult. This is especially so without professional help and knowledge.
By educating staff members on each of these pests, how to look out for them, and how to deal with them, you can help prevent as many of these unwelcome pests as possible.
Maintains Your Brands Reputation
Hotel managers will already be aware of the disaster of finding bed bugs in guest rooms, as well as finding roaches and rodents in restaurants and dining areas. Of course, pest infestations have a huge effect on hotel reputation and ratings. And if you manage a luxury hotel the stakes are even higher, as expectations of cleanliness are higher.
If you thought bad news traveled fast many years ago, with the popularity of social media and reviewing websites, imagine how fast it travels now. When a pest problem rears its ugly head, it doesn’t take long for others to hear all about it.
The moment an online review, or unfortunate image, is posted slamming your hotel for sheltering these pests, these issues are likely to spread around. And imagine the public’s reactions if more visible pests are seen scurrying around the hotel. For example, cockroaches or mice in the restaurant.
Hotel pest control can stop the damage before it has a chance to start with the preventative methods mentioned. That way pests are caught before they can get in.
Improves Quality Control In Your Hotel
Not only are pests unsanitary and damaging to brand reputation, but they’re also a constant threat to quality control. And no matter what your business is, effective quality control is crucial for success.
Pests can damage all sorts of products that belong in a hotel, from food to clothing to mattresses and everything between. They can also make locations such as bedrooms unsuitable to sleep in, meaning you’ll lose out on revenue.
