Door Sweeps: What They Do for You
When it comes to keeping your home or business pest free, you’ve probably wondered if it’s possible to get the job done without chemicals. In fact, many businesses that sell or serve food, and public places like schools and hospitals are now being required to use reduced levels of chemical treatments, or eliminate them altogether.
The good news is that door sweeps are an inexpensive way to eliminate light, odors, and sound that attract unwanted pests, and they can also lower your energy costs. The Bug Man is the leading provider of pest control in Little Rock, and we’re always available to discuss the benefits of door sweeps for your home or business. Here’s how they work:
No matter how well your doors were installed, there are often small gaps and openings that allow light to escape. If you notice a draft around a door, that means that you’re not only forcing your heating and air conditioning to work harder, you’re also catching the attention of outdoor pests, and giving them an easy way to get inside. This problem can also get worse over time as a building settles. Door sweeps are brushes containing thousands of dense nylon bristles that form a tight seal around exterior and overhead doors. And the flexible brushes conform to any surface to form an effective seal, even if the surface is uneven or irregular.
The Bug Man is proud to carry the full line of Sealeze Pest Control Brush products, and we’ll help you select the proper products for your business or home. If you have a warehouse or industrial operation, we offer seals for dock levelers, rolling and overhead doors, and even aircraft hangar doors, for gaps up to 4 inches. If you have a restaurant, commercial foodservice operation, or grocery store subject to FDA inspections, we offer products that will comply with all regulations. And we also offer products for the home, including overhead door seals, door sweeps, and door jamb seals.
Door sweeps are a very inexpensive and durable way to keep the pests away, and lower your energy costs at the same time. For more information, or to schedule a free estimate, click here, or give us a call at (501) 663-9464.
