Disinfestation is the process of exterminating animals such as cockroaches, rats, ants or termites, to name but a few. These animals are not only unsightly or dirty, but they are also a real nightmare for many people. They can also be potentially dangerous to human health by transmitting diseases and causing allergic reactions.

Pest control is the set of preventive actions that prevents the appearance and proliferation of these species. We use different environmentally conscious materials and equipment, in order to prevent these animals from finding food, shelter and suitable conditions for their development.

Disinfection is the elimination of micro-organisms that can cause infectious diseases, such as the Coronavirus for example. This process involves the use of viricidal substances, capable of destroying the cell wall of these tiny elements. Viruses, bacteria and fungi can live on the surfaces that surround us. The disinfection service should be carried out with some frequency to avoid the risk of new contamination.

Disinfection service is often confused with disinfestation, but they are different procedures. Disinfection is carried out using cold fogging, whereas disinfestation uses insecticidal and rodenticidal products and materials.

Our disinfestation products are changed regularly, taking into account the seasonal adaptations of each species.
