The services were provided countrywide even during curfew/lockdown periods to help the community to fight Covid-19 and companies all over Sri Lanka to get back to business.

Exterminators disinfected 71residential homes for elderly peolple, covering over 350,000 sq.ft. and travelling over 5,000 kms to help protect the senior citizens of Sri Lanka from Covid-19.

They also disinfected 30 police stations in Colombo & Kandy, protecting over 5,000 police personnel and helping the Sri Lanka Police to take on the battle against Covid-19.

Additionally, the team disinfected 15 religious places, numerous schools, railway stations, bus stations, underpass and South Asia’s world famous Lotus Tower area.

Since March 2020, Exterminators has increased salaries of all employees by 10-50% while the directors salaries were reduced by 40%, as well as four motorbikes which were donated to the High-Risk Covid team members.

Reduced prices by 5% for all contract and non-contract customers for a period of 12 months and special rates was offered to the hotel industry.

Marlon Ferreira Founder/Managing Director at Exterminators Ltd stated:

"In this unprecedented situation we are proud of the small part we played in helping the community, especially the highly vulnerable senior citizens and Sri Lanka Police, to fight Covid-19.

"As socialpreneur it is our moral obligation to help our community, our customers, our employees and their families when they need us the most.
