Preventing Bed Bugs In Your Rental Property
Almost everyone in Rochester makes it at minimum a priority every summer to visit the Finger Lakes. And each year it seems more people from even farther away have made Canandaigua a destination. We have been going there for almost 40 years, and every year I am astonished at how much this boutique city has changed. It’s just the right distance from Rochester to feel like you’ve gotten away from the city.
But recently we started receiving a large increase of calls for bed bug services in Canandaigua. We turned to Google Trends, and there we noticed a large increase in searches for “Canandaigua NY Bed Bugs”. Here is why:
Increase In Non Managed Property Rentals
With the increase in tourism, more people in Canandaigua are renting out their properties on AirBnB to adventuring couples and families from across the globe. We have had more bed bug treatments in residential properties that have been renting their homes out during the summer months than any other year. It seems like every year there is a 10-15% increase in bed bug jobs because of the increased tourism. I mean it’s easy to understand why rental properties can get infested.
One of the main ways bed bugs are transported from one property to another is through moving from one property to another. When that process of bringing items and clothing in and out every day its the ultimate exposure. We have seen this issue in many hotels in some of our Rochester service areas. Before Airbnb and other vacation rental sites, properties that were rented were managed by staffed professional exterminators. We are finding that with these small rentals the homeowners are unprepared for the influx of bed bugs or other infestations.
Race To The Bottom
Other hotels and hospitality facilities have also contacted us from Canandaigua claiming they have been infested with bed bugs from tourists as well. To help protect your investment, here are some smart tips to roll the cost of this across the board. Add about $1,000 – $1,500 to the average yearly nightly rates for Airbnb budget to cover the costs of bed bugs. Another $5.00 – $10.00 a night over the course of the year could cover you in the case of an infestation. Most people that have a higher end property earning them income already understand what a good Canandaigua Exterminator can do to their bottom line. Time is money someone once told me.
Avoid Bad Reviews On Your Property From Bed Bugs
Lastly, give us a call if you believe you are having trouble with bed bugs. Don’t let any other renters in the property. Bad reviews and troubled renters can cause a headache and just add to your already stressful situation. The cost of returning someone’s money and covering medical expenses and treatment to save your reviews will end up costing more than handling professionally on a regular basis. AirBnb has been very strict about the rules regarding bed bugs, and many hosts have discussed with us the process of providing them with written treatment reports. There are establishments including historic hotels that have had their reputations put on the line by bed bugs. You can check out reviews for Finger Lakes property rentals on vrbo.
