Termite Control Company – 9 Tips for Hiring a Quality Solution

So, when looking for a quality termite control company, follow these 9 tips, given by the National Pest Management Association:

Termite Control Company – Look for Reputation

  • Look for qualified and licensed pest control professionals and companies that are members of national, state, or local pest management associations.
  • Ask friends and neighbors to recommend professional pest control companies they have used successfully and how satisfied they were with the service.

Termite Control Company – Check Licensing

  • Ask to see proper licensing and credentials from the pest management professional that comes to solve your pest problem.

Termite Control Company – Compare Options

  • If a sizable amount of money is involved, get bids from several pest management professionals.
  • Don’t rush a decision. Since you are paying for professional pest control advice, as well as skillful treatment, look for someone whose judgment you can trust.

Termite Control Company – Read the Contract

  • Before signing a contract, be sure to fully understand the pest species, the extent of the infestation and the work necessary to solve the problem.
  • Find out if the pest control company has liability insurance to cover any damages to your house or furnishings during treatment.
  • If a guarantee is given, know what it covers, how long it lasts, what you must do to keep it in force, and what kind of continuing professional pest control, prevention and management are necessary.

Termite Control Company – Look for Value

  • Buy value, not price. Do not make a purchasing decision based solely on the lowest cost.
