NPMA Highlights Pest Control Franchise Opportunities In Disinfection Services

Today’s post reviews National Pest Management Association (NPMA) research on the rising demand for COVID-19 disinfection services, which are included as part of our standard pest control franchise opportunities.

What Are Disinfection Services?

According to the National Pest Management Associations, disinfection services are “designed to treat inanimate, non-porous touchpoints (fomites) that serve as passive disease transmission vectors.”

When contaminated with infectious agents, such as pathogenic bacteria, viruses (e.g. COVID-19), and fungi, these fomites can transfer disease to new hosts.

Disinfection services are designed to control the organisms that are present at the time of treatment, but they do not provide “residual disinfection” (i.e. ongoing disinfection). As such, proper service frequency must be determined based on several factors, including “customer risk profile, volume of public access and interaction with the site, amount of employee interaction with fomites, and viability of supplement disinfectant programs.”

Even before COVID-19, many industries relied on disinfection services to meet sanitation standards. But in light of the pandemic threat, disinfection opportunities abound, as businesses across all industries implement infection-control protocols as part of their continuity plans. As part of our commitment to continually expand the Pestmaster menu, and to help slow the spread of COVID-19, we’re proud to offer disinfection services as part of every pest control franchise opportunity.

Surface Transmission Of COVID-19 Is A Real Threat, Experts Say

The virus that causes COVID-19 is stable for long periods, from hours to days, both in aerosols and on surfaces, according to a new study from the National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA, and Princeton University scientists in the New England Journal of Medicine. Therein, researchers determined that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable for:

  • Up to 3 hours in aerosols
  • Up to 4 hours on copper
  • Up to 24 hours on cardboard
  • Up to 2-3 days on plastic and stainless steel

The results provide critical information about the spread and stability of SARS-CoV-2, suggesting that people may acquire the virus both through community spread and by touching contaminated surfaces.

In light of these findings, the value of disinfection services is clear, both as an infection-control protocol and an opportunity to generate serious service revenues in 2021. As mentioned above, disinfection services can effectively treat harmful organisms, but because they provide no “residual disinfection,” repeat treatments are a must. And that’s great news for service providers!

Dr. Stuart Mitchell | BCE

I’ve been in the industry for years and I can’t tell you just how valuable the Pestmaster franchise opportunity really is. I have much greater access to identifying and getting potent government contracts with the help and assistance from the corporate office. We would not be nearly as successful as we are today, had we not purchased a Pestmaster Franchise.

Pestmaster® has been the best investment I’ve ever made in my life!

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster franchise, we could not have gone from just one to several employees in less than one year of purchasing the franchise. Without the franchise, we would not have known about the high-dollar pest control services opportunities such as West Point Academy and we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.

Paul Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

I owned my own small pest control business for six years before I decided to buy a national brand franchise. The amount of business I was able to produce in those six years was doubled in just my first year with Pestmaster. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster of Salt Lake City, UT

I knew I was ready to start a business and looked for a long time but could not find my value-added proposition What could I do better than anyone else to distinguish me from the others in any industry? I have always been a technical person, so I was not confident in my ability to start a brand and market it. I also didn’t want to start from zero without help and support in my new adventure. For these reasons I looked into franchising opportunities and quickly found Pestmaster. They provided the value-added proposition, branding, marketing and support that I was looking for. The business model works and the people in the PFN will help you succeed.
