Since our South African lockdown started on the 27th of March we’ve had 83 days of regulations nationally eased of 3 risk-related stages. As an essential services provider, Rentokil has had the privilege of continuing to support our customers’ pest control requirements and also been able to further enhance our customer support with the introduction of our Specialist Disinfection Service.

These blogs contain information we believe you’ll find valuable information as your business transitions to advanced level 3 protocols.
