When you decide to hire a pest control company, you are allowing someone to come into your home and use methods to rid you of pests. Some of the chemicals used for pest control can be harmful to plants, animals, and people. It is important to know exactly what you are getting into and what to expect from a company before choosing to hire them:
Don’t Choose Blindly
When you are looking for a company that will provide exceptional service, the last thing you want to do is pick a random company. Do your homework. It is always a good idea to ask people that you trust for a recommendation: neighbors, friends, family. Chances are that one of them has needed a pest control company in the past and will have a good recommendation.
Ask For An Inspection
Have the company that you are considering using come and perform a pest control inspection in your home. Some companies will even do the inspection for free. They will hopefully find what is ailing your home and create a plan of action to get rid of the pests. They should let you know the products that they are planning on using, how long the extermination will take, if additional treatments will be necessary, precautions, and cost after the inspection.
Review The Contract
Don’t sign anything without reading it. Things to look for on the contract before signing include name of the company, length of service, treatment plan, price and guarantees.
