At the best of times your server room may be unmanned which can result in an increased risk of pest activity. And now, during lockdown, there is a good chance no-one has been into the server room for weeks. Do you know what’s been going on in there while you’ve been working from home?
Why minimise pest infestations?
Pest threats to any server storage location, be it cabinet, server room, or data centre, have the potential to be devastating. IT servers are often business critical equipment, the loss of which can be highly disruptive and affect your ability to continue to function. The data stored and systems that run on servers can be vital to supporting customers, maintaining lines of communication and ultimately, operating to capacity.
Pests, especially rodents with their incessant gnawing, have the potential to cause significant damage to this business critical – and expensive – equipment! Can you really afford not only the cost of having to replace damaged equipment, but also the cost of downtime as employee productivity is compromised, and the risk of customer losses with the potential for SLA-based penalties and reputational harm?
It’s therefore essential to maintain your pest control services and building maintenance during lockdown, especially in business critical areas such as server rooms. A professional pest control service can provide an integrated pest-management plan that controls pests efficiently and discreetly to protect the expensive and critical IT equipment.
