5 Things to Expect from Your Pest Control Company Before Doing Treatment

Group of carpenter ants on the wallYou’ve noticed that your cupboard spiders have been multiplying each week. Now, you spend most of your time cleaning out webs, hoping they don’t come back. The next thing you know, they’re making webs in your closet, shoe rack, and every other corner of the house. You’ve tried every insect and spider spray in Utah, but while they seem to work, you can’t seem to shake off the feeling that you need to hire an expert.

Here are five things you should expect from your pest control company:

Pre-service Instructions and Communication

Tell them what pests you saw, where, and how many of them are there. After inspection, they should let you know about any preparation you’ll need before the day of the treatment. You may need to clean some areas and remove appliances, furniture, or pets that are near the treatment area. If they need the house to be vacant, they should give you enough time to be ready for that too.

Complete Time Table

They should discuss with you a complete schedule of the treatment. This should include the arrival time and the duration of treatment. If there’s a full vacancy, know for how long. There should also be margins for any possible delay.

Clean, Organized Equipment, and Professional Appearance

Quality service should be supported by neat-looking technicians with equipment ready for safety. If you see pesticide dripping on the side of a sprayer, you might want to call their attention. You don’t want to get any of that on your carpets.

Proper Identification

Every technician must show a proper company identification with photo to make sure they can be trusted to go to your house.

After treatment, you should again have a sit down to discuss what pests they found, how the treatment went, and how many follow-ups they’ll have to do to make sure the job is complete. Communication is the key to make sure your home will be pest-free.
