Article Summary: 

The blog post discusses the issue of pest control in condominium buildings and who is responsible for managing and preventing pest infestations.

The post begins by explaining that pest infestations can cause health risks, property damage, and overall discomfort for residents. It then highlights that the responsibility for pest control is shared between the condominium corporation and individual unit owners.

The condominium corporation is responsible for maintaining common areas and ensuring that they are kept clean and free from pests. This includes regular inspections, cleaning, and pest control measures. Meanwhile, unit owners are responsible for keeping their own units clean and preventing pests from entering and spreading within their units.

The post also notes that pest control can be a complex issue, with various factors affecting the likelihood of infestations, such as building age, construction, and location. Therefore, it is crucial for both the corporation and unit owners to work together and communicate effectively to prevent and address pest issues.

Overall, the blog serves as a reminder that pest control is a shared responsibility in condominium buildings and that effective communication and cooperation between the corporation and unit owners are essential for maintaining a pest-free and healthy environment for residents.
