What Is LEED Certification?

What Is LEED Certification?


  • Sustainable Site Development
  • Water Savings

  • Energy Efficiency

  • Materials Selection

  • Indoor Environment Quality

A point-based system with achievements structured into Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum status, a LEED certification is only provided to those who submit an application, complete with documented compliance with the established requirements.

In regards to pest control, points are obtained through implementing the strategies of Integrated Pest Management, or IPM. IPM focuses on deterring pests through the use of environmentally safe techniques. Trained specialists use knowledge of pest life cycles and the interaction with surrounding environments to effectively and safely deter and prevent pests while influencing points in the areas of Sustainable Site Development and Indoor Environment Quality.

Schendel Pest Services’ IPM can be a benefit to the quality of your business and its buildings in many ways. In support of green buildings, we want to help you become one! Green buildings have a beneficial impact, both economically and environmentally. Green buildings:

  • Improve air and water quality

  • Conserve natural resources

  • Lower operating costs

  • Improve employee productivity
