How Rentokil supports hotels and the hospitality industry

Rentokil offers industry-leading pest control expertise and technology, to provide the best solution for every part of your business.

We can tailor solutions to prevent and control pest infestations in bedrooms, hotel lobbies, bars and restaurants, offices and staff areas, external areas, food preparation and serving areas, and mitigate the risk of further infestations.

Discover the many ways Rentokil pest control can add value:

The potentially serious financial impact that pest infestations and poor hygiene can have on a public-facing business makes it essential to have effective pest control and hygiene measures in place.

A bad customer experience can result in complaints and have a negative effect on brand reputation. An outbreak of a food-borne illness or unsanitary food preparation and serving areas could lead to fines, suspension of business operations, closure and legal action, resulting in loss of revenue and customers.

Hospitality sector insights

At Rentokil Initial we commission reports to gain valuable insights about industry and deepen our understanding of the challenges and requirements of businesses, including operators within the hospitality and leisure industry.

Assuring the future of global food safety

In 2015 we commissioned a report to investigate the role of emerging technology in the mitigation of risks and the advancement of global food safety

We aggregated data for 2015 collected automatically and recorded by our technicians for customers handling food across 51,000 sites in 27 countries. We found a quarter of sites overall had recorded pest activity. Overall, 52% of incidents related to rodents, 25% to flying insects and 16% to crawling insects.

An analysis of recommendations made by Rentokil technicians for the same 51,000 sites showed that 45% of incidents were related to sanitation and hygiene practices and 19% to building integrity.

Financial impact of pests

In 2015 we also commissioned the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) to survey over 1,000 decision makers on the financial impact of pests on businesses. From the data gathered, Cebr estimated that in 2014 pest infestations caused an increase in operating costs of £5.8 billion for businesses in the five European countries surveyed and a revenue decline of £11.8 billion. Only 17% of businesses reported no loss of revenue from pest infestations.

The survey showed the three types of pest with the greatest impact on food businesses:

  • Stored Product Insects (SPIs): the most expensive. 60% of businesses reported annual revenue losses of 1–9% due to SPIs.
  • Rats: the most destructive. Over a quarter of businesses reported damage to electrical equipment and 20% reported machine downtime due to rats.
  • Flies: the most likely to cause illness in staff. Flies cause 64% of businesses to worry about compensation claims and 11% to worry about staff illness.
