Jon and Paul receive an award
Surrey based pest control company Cleankill Pest Control has been named ‘Best Business for Staff Training and Development’ and ‘Best Green Business’ at the 2016 Croydon Business Excellence Awards. Based in Croydon and Seaford, Cleankill Pest Control has been providing pest control services to London and the South-east since 1995. Set up by former Rentokil employees, Cleankill was founded upon the desire to create a company that placed customer service, respect for the environment, care for the community and staff development on an equal footing with profitability.
CEPA Certified
Cleankill Pest Control has become the 14th pest control company in the UK to be certified BS EN 16636:2015 – The Management of Public Health Pest Species Including Bird Control. Receiving this accreditation confirms that Cleankill has the correct systems in place to deliver first-class, safe and efficient pest control services in the United Kingdom. Certification runs from 24th March 2016 until 23rd March 2019, with an interim audit during the middle year.
With summer predicted to return to the UK this week, pest control experts are issuing warnings about the threat of wasps disrupting barbecues and picnics.
Wasps vs Bees
Cleankill Pest Control, the Surrey based pest control experts who specialise in ‘green’ pest control, have found themselves unusually busy for the time of year with calls to deal with wasps nests that turn out to be bees.
Investors In People
Surrey based business Cleankill Pest Control has been named as a leader in people management practice globally, having been shortlisted in the Excellence in Social Responsibility category (up to 249 employees) in the third annual Investors in People Awards. Finalists demonstrate that social responsibility is not just a policy; it’s driven from the top and rooted in the culture of the whole organisation.
Damaged bird net
With Spring seemly getting earlier and earlier, now is the time to make sure your property is protected from nesting pigeons and other flying pests. As the days get warmer, birds will start to look for places to settle – outside ledges and exposed pipework. Their droppings will then collect on the floor below, causing an unsightly and dangerously slippery mess.
Cleankill Pest Control is delighted to announce that the company has reached the finals of the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards. Customer service is at the heart of the company’s business strategy and so it is particularly heartening that we have been shortlisted, against stiff competition, in the category for ‘Customer Delight’ - sponsored by Storm Creative. Managing Director Paul Bates said: “Our inclusion in the final three for this category shows that our expertise and a strong customer-based ethos set us apart from many other companies.
With forecasters predicting the harshest winter the UK has seen in half a century, pest controllers are now advising people to make sure their homes are fully protected against invading rodents.   At a time when we feel like bolting our doors and keeping winter cold outside, it is hardly surprising that mice, rats and squirrels are trying to join us in our sanctuaries of warmth.  
St Phillips, Jon Whitehead, Cleankill, Jesus in Jeans. Uckfield, East Sussex
A Catholic church in Sussex had spent many years trying to prevent pigeons messing on their statue depicting modern-day Christ. The ‘Maintenance Committee’, with the help of their priest, finally found a company that could help. Alan Duncan who, with a colleague, helps with maintenance issues at St Philips Church in Uckfield, was at the end of his tether after spending considerable funds and much research on different possible solutions to keep the statue called ‘Jesus in Jeans’ clean.
George the Harris Hawk
Eastbourne College Head Groundsman, Richard Maryan, was horrified when the pitches he has spent months painstakingly preparing for the Springboks to use in their World Cup preparation, were invaded by seagulls. Richard, whose team has prepared the College’s Memorial Ground pitches to the exacting standards demanded of a Rugby World Cup pitch, knew hawks are a humane method of scaring away pest birds and have been used successfully at venues like Wimbledon. So he made a call and George the Harris Hawk is now on standby to save the day and protect months of Richard’s hard work and provide a training ground fit for the world’s 4th ranked rugby team.
