New York, NY, April 01, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- In the onset of the NYC Department of Health’s new legislation, Pest Away is fully prepared to help landlords and management companies follow protocol and eradicate bed bugs from their buildings. As Mayor Bloomberg and the City Council have toughened down on bed bug regulations, Pest Away has geared up to partner with building leadership to implement effective inspection and treatments.
Under the newly effective law, all building owners must inspect and treat all units surrounding a bed bug infested apartment. Additionally, they must notify all of the tenants upon bed bug detection and provide a building eradication plan. Building owners and landlords who repeatedly fail to respond to bed bug problems will be forced into a sworn affidavit with a licensed exterminator and will be seriously fined.
Because bed bugs can travel through cracks, crevices and electrical outlets in search of a blood meal, it is essential to inspect and treat the apartments above, below and on either side of the infested apartment to tackle the problem.
Pest Away is fully equipped with the resources, manpower and expertise to guide management companies and landlords as they adopt this new legislation. They offer 100% green treatments and traditional chemical treatments tailored to building and tenant needs. Pest Away has worked with hundreds of buildings and management companies to eradicate and prevent bed bug infestations.
As a progressive company, Pest Away (www.pestawayinc.com) has strongly recommended inspecting and treating all surrounding apartments since the beginning of the bed bug epidemic. Pest Away has been in business for over 20 years and is the “Best Eco-Friendly Exterminator in NY” (NY Magazine’s Best of NY). Jeff Eisenberg, Pest Away president and bed bug expert, wrote The Bed Bug Survival Guide, the ultimate guide to bed bug prevention, detection and eradication.
