The importance of having your workplace disinfected

The top 3 reasons why all businesses should be having their workplace disinfected… and the very serious consequences that can occur if you don’t!

It’s no surprise to hear that the times we are living in are very unusual. The way we lived even 6 months ago is drastically different to the way we live now.

If you asked anyone at the beginning of 2020 if they have their workplaces regularly disinfected, the answer probably would have been no – and fair enough – with only high-risk workplaces requiring this service.

But with every area now being a ‘high-risk’ area due to the spread of COVID-19, every single business should be considering disinfecting their workplace to safeguard their customers, their employees, and their business and reputation.

And for those with sit-down facilities or high traffic areas, this is now an absolute non-negotiable.

Here are the top 3 reasons why having your workplace disinfected is crucial to your business:



COVID-19, viruses, bacteria and fungi can all be spread via contaminated surfaces, with many of these ‘nasties’ living for hours – even up to days – on hard surfaces.

By using a powerful, high-grade disinfection service, you can maintain the absolute highest level of hygiene in your home, office, business, workplace or other areas and fight off the spread of illnesses.

The safety of staff and customers should be every business’s highest priority, and steps like disinfecting your work area can support this.

Did you know: ProPest Control’s specially selected disinfectant is eco-friendly meaning you can rest assured knowing you’re taking care of the people who use your space and not harming the environment.



With this unprecedented event still current around the globe (and expected to be for quite some time still), people everywhere want to be sure that the places they are attending are low risk for the spread of infection.

It is this simple: if people feel uncertain or unsafe about attending your business, they will stop attending and your business will suffer for it.

Show your community that you take their concerns, safety and wellbeing seriously by having your space disinfected, and improve their confidence in your business.



If there was an outbreak of COVID-19 at your business, what do you think the consequences would be?

Sick staff, sick customers, closure of your work area and the list goes on – not to mention potential legal risks if you were found negligent to government policies. Could your business risk being closed or being responsible for this? The answer is likely no.

That is why keeping your space hygienic (through the likes of disinfection and other hygiene practices) is so important to every business.

Don’t risk the reputation or closure of your business when there are accessible steps you can take to protect your business and the people who use it.


The fact is, disinfection is not only the smart choice, but it is the safe choice for your business, your community, and your reputation.
