New York, NY (PRWEB) March 30, 2011
Assured Environments, New York’s leading pest control company since 1934, has learned that Mayor Bloomberg’s administration and the City council unveiled yesterday tougher bed bug regulations for landlords.
Effective immediately - building owners are required to inspect and treat for bed bugs in units next to, above, and below any unit that has bed bug activity. They must also notify tenants if bed bugs are found in their building and provide a bed bug eradication plan. Bed bug infestations have shot up in recent years in New York City due to their ability to travel from place to place on clothing, luggage, and used furniture and even directly on people.
“Working with landlords and other property managers in the city to certify their pest problems are being solved quickly is certainly nothing new to us,” says Andrew Klein, president of Assured Environments. “Of course, bed bugs have become a much more prevalent problem in the city over recent years, but we have been ridding them from New York City apartments and buildings for over 75 and have a great reputation to show for it.”
Landlords who repeatedly fail to respond to bed bug problems will be required to get a licensed exterminator to fill out a sworn affidavit indicating that the bed bug problem has been treated. Any building owner who disregards these new rules may face serious fines.
