PGH Pest Prevention: Protecting Historical Buildings in the UK from Pest Infestations

Preserving historical buildings in the UK is of paramount importance as they represent our rich cultural heritage. However, these buildings are often threatened by pest infestations, which can cause severe damage to the structure and integrity of these architectural treasures. At PGH Pest Prevention, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive pest control solutions to safeguard historical buildings from pest-related issues, ensuring that they remain standing for generations to come. 

Pest Problems and Service Issues Faced by Historical Buildings 

Historical buildings are susceptible to various pest infestations, including rodents, insects, and birds. These infestations can lead to numerous issues, such as: 

  • Structural damage: Pests like termites and woodworm can weaken the building’s structure by feeding on wooden elements, while rodents can burrow into walls and foundations. 
  • Bees and wasps also often make their hives and nests within the walls and roofs of these buildings
  • Health hazards: Pests can spread diseases and allergens, posing a risk to staff and visitors. 
  • Damage to artefacts: Pests can contaminate or even destroy valuable artefacts and antique furnishings, reducing their historical value. 
  • Aesthetic damage: Bird droppings and nesting materials can tarnish the appearance of these iconic buildings. 



Is your pest control treatment safe for historical buildings and their artefacts?

Absolutely. We have a vast amount of experience in this area. We use safe, non-destructive methods and products, ensuring that your historical building and its contents are not harmed during the pest control and prevention process. 

How do you prevent future pest infestations in historical buildings? 

Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach focuses on preventative measures, such as regular inspections, monitoring, and habitat modification. This helps to reduce the likelihood of future infestations, ensuring ongoing protection for your historical building. 

Are your technicians trained in working with historical buildings?

Yes, our technicians undergo rigorous training and have experience working with historical buildings, ensuring they understand the unique requirements and sensitivities associated with these structures. 


Our Approach to Pest Control in Historical Buildings

At PGH Pest Prevention, we understand the unique challenges associated with pest control in historical buildings. Our approach to safeguarding these structures includes: 

Tailored pest control plans: We develop customised pest control strategies based on the building’s specific needs, taking into consideration its architectural features, materials, and pest history. 

Integrated Pest Management (IPM): Our IPM approach combines physical, biological, and chemical methods to ensure effective, long-lasting pest control solutions while minimising harm to the building and its occupants. 

Regular monitoring and maintenance: We provide ongoing monitoring and maintenance services to ensure that pest infestations remain under control and historical buildings are protected at all times.

Exceptional customer service and follow up. Very happy with this company and the quality of their work. So much greater than the previous company I initially used. Branden and Ryan were a pleasure to engage with and their knowledge of the subject at hand was very reassuring.

Cannot recommend these guys enough! We were in desperate need of quick help with a rodent issue we were having. They were so efficient, clean and responded quickly. Communication was great, and nothing was too much of a bother. They even came back 3 weeks after the job had been completed to make sure we were happy and to check the areas. The whole team is faultless, thanks guys!!
Wish I had used this company first!

PGH have been brilliant. I had an issue with another pest company and wish I had used this company first! They've listened, are interested in finding a solution and couldn't have been more professional or kinder. They did a very thorough survey and developed an appropriate treatment plan and have been available to offer advice when I've called. I really would highly recommend them.
Highly recommend for peace of mind and excellence

Peter surveyed the problem of birds in my roof space, and I received a detailed quote which I accepted. The work, which seemed complicated to me, was carried out as described and humanely. I am very satisfied as this problem has been causing me a lot of stress for a long time, and now it is resolved. 100% recommended.
