When these early days of summer bring vacationers and creepy crawlies to your property, never fear – HSM is here to prevent bugs from wreaking havoc at hotels during warmer weather. Keep your guests protected from pests by leveraging HSM’s extensive range of comprehensive and competitively-priced pest control service contracts. HSM offers fully-customizable contracts with a variety of service providers, including Terminix, Rentokil and Ecolab. We are also excited to announce that we recently welcomed Orkin back to HSM’s network of suppliers. With the exception of Ecolab, all of our pest control providers are available to contract with any partnering HSM property.

To make sure your service agreement is tailored to address exactly what is bugging you, HSM employs a three-tiered “good, better, best” structure with our pest control contracts. Hotels seeking a routine monthly maintenance package, including spraying and trapping for common insects, will find a wide range of offerings available through HSM’s network of suppliers. Properties looking to extend coverage for services such as fumigation, termites or bed bugs, as well as pest control for specific local insects, can take advantage of extensive add-on offerings to customize your contract.

But why contract through HSM instead of working directly with a supplier? Simply put, HSM is a global hospitality procurement powerhouse, and the scope of our scale and annual spend affords us a much broader reach across the supply chain’s competitive landscape. For example, HSM not only negotiates a significantly lower pricing structure with pest control providers, granting our customers access to the best values possible, but we also negotiate contracts with better and more comprehensive coverage terms. Hotels procuring pest control services through an HSM-generated contract will enjoy added benefits ranging from satisfaction guarantees, which are often absent from standard agreements, to insurance caps negotiated well above the industry average. Other contract perks include a 24/7 hotline for emergency service needs; a 24-hour callback guarantee; and an escalation clause guaranteeing on-site service within 24 hours of contact. HSM also ensures that our service suppliers have field offices in close proximity to our partnering properties so that top-quality pest control is always within reach.

Properties looking to establish a pest control contract through one of HSM’s suppliers are encouraged to contact their supplier of choice and ask to speak with the HSM direct representative. Representatives are available to help provide an estimate for new contracts, as well as assisting with new service requests. HSM has established basic coverage pricing with each supplier, and hotels may then customize their quotes based on property size, total number of rooms, requested frequency of service visits and other specialized needs.

If pests are not the only bugs in your operation, HSM can help keep all other operating areas of your property running smoothly. For needs that cannot be handled exclusively in-house, take advantage of our other established supplier relationships to access service agreements for TV content, elevator maintenance, public space cleaning, gateway and security, credit card acquiring, scenting and clean air, public space music, on-hold messaging, temporary labor and third shift, roofing, water treatment and waste management. Whatever your operational needs might be, let HSM take the sting out of sourcing and be your one-stop shop for top-notch services and suppliers.
