5 Reasons To Keep Your Establishment Pest-Free

5 Reasons To Keep Your Establishment Pest-Free

Nobody wants to see insects and other pests in their environment, especially in a commercial establishment. But, due to the nature of our ecosystem, eliminating them may not always be possible or beneficial for our planet. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t control pests and creepy crawlers and keep your business property free of infestations that can be unhealthy and destructive.

Below, we’ve outlined several reasons to consider hiring a professional pest control service regularly to keep your commercial establishment pest free.

  1. Pests are Unhealthy for You and Your Property

Pests aren’t just irritating, they also carry a wide range of infestations and disease into your business environment. A variety of different pests carry dangerous health hazards, and it’s not just bugs and rodents you have to worry about, but ticks and mosquitoes too. That’s why controlling both outdoor and indoor pests is important for everyone’s health.

  1. Pests are Highly Destructive

Many rodents and other pests can be destructive and ruin your property and possessions. If you have an infestation of termites, they could hurt the structure of your business. While they may seem harmless, carpenter ants can destroy objects around the property. If your infestations get that far, you’ll need advanced pest control available at Pest Free Australia.

  1. Pests Get into Food

Arguably, one of the worst things about pests is that they just love to target food. Whether you have a kitchen in your office premises or you’re running a restaurant, if pests can find their way in, then they’re not only going to eat everything in sight, they’ll also get you into hot water with food inspectors or health and safety authorities. Be sure to hire a team of professional pest controllers to ensure that your perishables are pest-free and safe and to ensure all possible points of entry to your establishment are properly sealed.

  1. DIY Measures

While you may think that getting rid of an infestation is as easy as buying a couple of traps and chemicals from the store, think again. Even though pesticides are sold in supermarkets, it doesn’t mean they are safe for you and those who visit your establishment. If you operate a commercial establishment, chemicals do not create a healthy work environment at all. By the time you invest in such products, you’re likely to end up spending a small fortune when you should seek expert help to begin with.

  1. It Shouldn’t Be a Worry

As a business owner, there’s a lot for you to deal with – from managing your business to motivating your staff. Pest management should not be one of your stresses. A pest management company will give you peace of mind that your establishment is pest-free, minus the harsh pesticides and chemicals.


By far, the best way to keep your commercial establishment free of pets is to prevent infestations in the first place. Tick it off your to-do list by enlisting the help of the professionals as well as quality pest control products to keep your premises free of pests.

6 Reasons Teeth Turn Yellow

6 Reasons Teeth Turn Yellow

Have you realised that your teeth aren’t looking as white as they used to? Are they remaining a shade of yellow even though you brush regularly?

There are several factors that contribute to the colour of your teeth. Some you can control and others you can’t.

Reasons Teeth Turn Yellow

  1. Smoking

Smoking makes your teeth yellow since the nicotine, tar and chemicals that are carried in the smoke seep into your tooth enamel’s pores, staining your once pearly whites. Studies have found that smokers tend to have not-so-bad to severe levels of discoloured teeth in comparison to just over 12% of non-smokers. Studies also show that smokers tend to be less happy about the state of their oral health.

  1. Poor Oral Hygiene

If you start to notice a yellowish build up on your teeth, it could be tartar or plaque. Plaque tends to form when bacteria from drinks and foods aren’t cleaned efficiently from the teeth. Over time, the plaque hardens and becomes tartar, which can only be removed by a hygienist or dentist. If your teeth are stained, you may want to consider teeth whitening Brisbane professionals are offering.

  1. Your Diet

What we put in our mouths can impact the colour of the teeth. If your teeth are yellow, it could be as a result of consuming the following foods:

  • Curries
  • Red wine
  • Tea and coffee
  • Beetroot
  • Berries
  • Tomato sauces
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Soy sauce
  • Fizzy drinks
  • Sugary foods
  • Sports drinks
  • Juices and citrus fruits
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Alcoholic drinks

By rinsing your mouth after consuming these items, you can help to minimise damage from any acid from the foods and drinks.

  1. Genetics

If you seem to have had yellow tinted teeth all your life, you may be able to blame your genes. Genetic variances can actually affect enamel porosity and tooth colour. What’s more, more porous enamel tends to be more liable to stain.

  1. Ageing

Aging is bad enough, but did you know it’s relatively normal for our teeth to yellow as we get older? That’s because the protective layer of enamel that we all have on our teeth becomes thinner with age, and it reveals the yellow dentin below the surface.

  1. Illnesses and Medication

Some antibiotics, for instance amoxicillin and tetracycline, can affect the shade of your teeth, particularly in younger children. Medications prescribed for adults with high blood pressure or allergies are also known to have this side effect. If you’re concerned that your medication is leading to yellow teeth, be sure to discuss this with your doctor.

There are also some illnesses, especially those that affect the liver, that can result in your teeth discolouring. Patients that undergo radiation and chemotherapy treatment for cancer may also find that their teeth begin to turn yellow or even brown.

Fortunately, with advanced teeth whitening treatments, you can go from yellow gnashes to pearly whites once more. Treatments are quick, easy and painless. You can talk to your dentist or hygienist about professional teeth whitening that is designed to last a long time and bring back confidence to your smile.
