During these tough times the biggest worry on everyone’s mind is how will things look after the Covid-19 circuit breaker period is over. What happens after the lock down is lifted?
Maximum Pest is set to keep your mind at ease. We have been providing homes, offices, child care centers and schools our anti-bacteria fumigation treatment. It eliminates 99.999% of germs and bacteria. All known pathogens are eradicated with our sanitisation treatment. This includes Covid-19, meaning that returning to the office is safer than ever. This may be something employers wish to convey in their COVID-19 Return to Office Memo to reassure their staff that the office environment is safe.
We have had some office clients carry out the treatment once a year to some childcare centers conducting it weekly. Of course the childcare centers never had a single case of hfmd. We have also seen some childcare centers take a reactive action, when hfmd strikes.
Furthermore, it is no secret that certain populations, such as those living with a disability, may be impacted more significantly by COVID-19. Older people seem to be at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 if they have serious underlying chronic medical conditions like chronic lung disease, a serious heart condition, or a weakened immune system.
Moreover, adults with disabilities are three times more likely than adults without disabilities to have heart disease, stroke, diabetes, or cancer than adults without disabilities. With this in mind, investing in disability insurance has never been more important for people who are at an increased risk of being unable to work due to the pandemic.
Needless to say, if you or someone you know in your workplace has a disability, then taking extra precautions will be crucial to keeping everyone safe and healthy.
Whichever school of thought you belong to, we are here to provide our services. Personally for me, I always take a preventive measure than a reactive one. Our sanitisation program is conducted in my home and our technician’s home to keep everyone at home safe and healthy during these troubled times. We never can be too careful when it comes to safety and we encourage all homes to take additional steps to safeguard your loved ones.
Covid-19 strikes the elderly harder than it does the young. Be sure to maintain not only a safe distancing measure when your outdoors but also maintain safety measures when you reach home. Sanitise and disinfect play items and surfaces regularly.

So you just received the keys to your new outlets and are excited to get going with renovation. Naturally, the kind of material used in the construction will vary massively depending on where you are based.
However, hold on for just a minute more, and consider other possible issues: rodents are a common occurrence in food establishments. It is best to identify all potential intrusion points early on and rectify them. Maximum Pest Management can help with exactly that. We will conduct a detailed check to your premises and identify any concerns that we may have.
The renovation process can be a very demanding one. The chances are you will have spent a long time finding, choosing and then buying tools, especially if you are doing any of the work yourself. With all of this time, effort and money you are putting in, you want your restaurant to be perfect at the end of it. The last thing you want is to finish your beautiful new restaurant, before realizing you have a rodent problem and having to close down barely before you’ve even reopened!
It is best to address these issues at the offset, weaving rodent control into the design and renovation stage of opening a retail outlet to help minimize the risk of them getting into your location later on. By addressing these areas early on, you will deter your rodent issue or at least it will be a whole lot more manageable.
If your premises is a stand alone unit, this process is much more simple. However, these days food establishments within malls hardly even have any doors and are completely an open concept. Even in these scenarios certain steps can be taken to minimise rodent activity within your premises. Just as you would want to reduce the risk of machine failure repeating with the fridges and ovens by hiring for an expert, you would want to reduce the risk of rodent intrusion.
Conduits, piping leading down from false ceilings and gaps within the ceiling cavity are all areas of concerns. Floor traps, drains & numerous others will also need to be assessed to determine probable intrusion points.
We have been getting tons of calls for termite preventive treatments. As much as we are glad to get enquirers as it means it could very well be a sale. We don’t ever want to mislead clients. So this post is our attempt to educate the public on the misconceptions of preventive treatment. This article applies to homes not on the ground level i.e apartment buildings, any premises other than bungalows. Preventive treatment to Bungalows is possible as the external perimeter of the structure would be accessible and only then can prevention treatment be properly carried out.
First and foremost, there is no termite prevention treatment that can be employed for properties other than bungalows. Preventive treatment is to deter only subterranean termites species. There is no prevention for dry wood termites – Your best bet is to install screens to physically deter dry wood termite intrusion.
Corrective treatment is a process that requires holes to be drilled surrounding your entire property (every half a metre – 30 to 40 cm deep) only the foundation slab that your property is built on is breached – Anti-Termite chemical can injected. This chemical seeps into the ground (soil) and bonds with the soil to create a barrier which deters termites from gaining access to your property from under ground.
For apartments it is definitely out of the question so please don’t get fooled.
a) There is absolutely no soil for the chemical to bond with.
b) You would have a neighbor, one floor below – Drilling will disperse chemical into your neighbor’s property.
c) Treating the perimeter of the whole building is neither practical or economically feasible. Continue reading
Termites are nature’s recyclers. They are genetically engineered to get rid of dead wood. If not for termites our forests will be over flowing with decaying wood. As it’s impossible for us to avoid wood in our homes, yes I’m talking about all your wooden carpentry, cabinets and even mirror frames. Termites feel it’s their moral duty to rid them. Afterall that’s all the purpose they’ve been tasked with.
Unfortunately for us, they do such a great job that we often find an infestation within our homes. Subtterenean Termites Species find their way through conduits; be it sewerage or cable. Any small hairline crack is all it takes for these guys to pave their way into your property. No height in a highrise is spared.
Drywood Termites on the other hand, create alates aka swarmers. As their name suggests, these are the flying ones. They are tasked with flying to a suitable area and continue their species. One male and one female alate aka reproductile find a suitable food source and setup shop.
Infestations are usually contained to a fixture and if undisturbed may remain within till the fixture is depleted. When agitated with pesticide, Drywood Termites tend to either migrate or produce alates. This usually results in the multiple fixtures being infested. Best thing to do if you notice Drywood Termites in your home is to replace that fixture soon. Continue reading
4 Simple Steps For A Pest Free Enviromnent
Though Christmas & New Year is season for giving, pests do not need any gifts. Be sure to remember these five steps to ensure your home remains pest free this holiday season. You have kept your home free of pest all year round so don’t drop the ball now. Almost all pest intrusion occurs due to improper waste management.
Step 1 – Food Waste
Whether you are cooking up a storm or catering a feast fit for kings. Be sure to not leave left-over food overnight. Be sure to discard all uneanted food promtly. Tie up all food waste in large garbage bags and ensure your trash can is tightly closed. If your bin is located outside your premises; be sure to check that there aren’t any holes in the bins. Rats are notorious for going through your garbage before the garbage collector.
Step 2 – Food Storage
It’s time to get your take away containers and storage containers out from your top shelf. Be sure to store all left over food in sealed containers and best minimise your food waste – giving your guests a doggy bag will reduce the amount of food you will need to throw out. Having easy access to food will most certainly attract pests into your premises. Continue reading
When it comes to termites, you only realise the they are there when some damage is observed. Though tiny these creatures, they cause millions of homeowners a huge hole in their pockets. The huge hole in homeowners’ pockets is usually for repairs and at times, reconstruction of the property itself. The first thing homeowners sholud understand is that termites unlike most common household pests are not as straightforward to eliminate.
A termite nest is almost always never near where an infestation is detected. Subterranean termites as the name suggests build their nest underground. An established nest can send its forces as far as 50 metres to forage for food. This is why it’s so important to get treatment for termites as soon as you find signs of them because they can spread throughout a property or even neighbourhood in no time. Maximum Pest has encountered subterranean termite infestations in high rise apartment buildings on the 38th floors. For this particular infestation, they found their way into our client’s home via a structural beam and through a concealed electrical conduit.
Termite will usually have mulitple forraging sites either in the same property or mulitple premises concurrently. They never only rely on one food source. Continue reading
Cockroaches consume almost everything that you can imagine. It’s no wonder these pesky buggers can outlive dinosaurs and survive the ice age. Cockroaches get into premises in a number of ways. Most commonly, they are brought in via cardboard boxes while moving or when you get deliveries.
Roaches thrive in dark crevices, stacks of paper and exposed wood grains (found within cabinets). Depending on the extent of the infestation, the right treatment should be employed, to have any chance of eradicating the cockroach infestation. To get some additional information you should read this.
The first signs of a cockroach infestation usually are their droppings or frass. They also produce a sour pungent smell which you can normally associate with the damp smell emitting from under your kitchen sink cabinet. The heavier your infestation, the smell will also be more pungent.
An office premises client of ours had engaged numerous pest control companies to solve their never-ending Cockroach Infestation. They had been plagued with German cockroaches from the time they had moved into their spanking new Shenton Way office. Continue reading
Many of the new enquiries that Maximum Pest receives, usually have an existing Pest Control contract. Many of these enquiries are recommendations from our existing clients, neighbours of our clients or have seen our reviews and want to engage a more professional and expert service provider.

Termites, though tiny are a huge problem. They cause trillions of dollars in damage each year. Once termites find a way into your property, they will not stop till they consume all cellulose within your premises. These tiny pests are extremely organised and systematic in their approach to get their food source.
Just like any organism, termites do everything in their ability to survive. Each time a nest is threatened with extinction, the queen will go into survival mode. To sustain their species, the Queen termite will produce winged reproductives, also known as alates or swarmers. Home-owners will usually find them flying around a light source after a heavy downpour. These winged reproductives have one purpose, it is to find a suitable environment to start a new nest or colony. One male and female will tunnel into the soil, close to a food source to establish their very own colony.
As time goes on, this new colony will grow larger and much more established. A mature nest can consist of millions of termites. A single mature nest can also have multiple kings and queens. A threat to a nest can come in numerous ways.
