Tackling the Severe Bed Bug Infestation Among Office Workers in Central London and the Home Counties

MAR Facilities Management’s Proactive and Eco-friendly Solution

The exponential increase in bed bug infestations within central London has caused significant distress among office workers. Not only are they exposed to potential bed bugs while commuting in public places, but there is also a legitimate concern that their workplace may be infected. The presence of bed bugs in offices, though less prevalent due to footfall, still poses a heightened chance of exposure due to regular occupation of offices. This pressing issue necessitates a proactive and effective solution to alleviate the concerns of office workers and ensure their continued presence in the workplace.

MAR Facilities Management presents a workable solution that emphasises the urgency and seriousness of addressing this problem in a timely way and cost-effective way.

How Covid and hybrid working have changed the game.

The pandemic has given society the breathing space to redesign what a workplace should offer and in the age of the invisible virus, the humble mop and bucket will not cut it.   

The mass experience of the recent pandemic has changed the way we all look at cleanliness and hygiene. Covid-19 redesigned the way we operate in large groups in public spaces, on transport, venues and workspaces. This virus did not discriminate: all environments had to adapt to government compliant mandates for safety. Offices, construction sites, retail, sports facilities, public venues, theatres, hotels and restaurants all experienced the impact of being starved from engagement from their usual end users.
