  • Every two months in the case of rodent controls (6 actions per year).
  • Four-monthly in the case of fumigations and disinfections (3 actions per year). It is also carried out the disinfection at certain points in which, due to its use, it could be produced damp that facilitate the proliferation of bacteria.
  • Quarterly in the case of specific treatments and revision of traps located in susceptible points of pest proliferation.



The industrial hygiene technicians receive a report of the actions taken by the external company per building or centre on the applied treatment. Furthermore, the external company, in its webpage, includes the actions taken that can be consulted by the administrators or people in charge of the centre, through an access key.


There are exceptional problems during the year, outside the established periods of the treatments, in which it is necessary to take a particular action.

To do this, the users of the UV will complete an announcement of prevention included in the management of the parts of the Health and Safety and the Environment Service.


If after an action of the external company the pest problem does not disappear because of a structural deficiency, the Hygiene technician will inform the Technical and Maintenance Service and/or the administrator of the different centres of the UV for its correction.
