Here’s What A Homeowner Should Know Before Hiring a Pest Control Company, also Referred to as an Exterminator
Make sure you hire a licensed and qualified pest management company that is a member of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), and the Utah Pest Control & Lawn Care Association (UPCLA).
Hire a QualityPro Certified Company. A QualifyPro certified company has taken extraordinary steps to make certain that customers can rely on them, including running criminal background checks on all employees. Using environmental sound products and integrated pest management techniques. Maintain a drug-free workplace, advertising truthfully and ethically; and maintaining an insurance policy.
Ask family, friends, and neighbors who they recommend and have used successfully.
Buy value – not price. There is a difference (big difference) between companies, the products used and the experience, training, and expertise.
Make sure the company you hire has an up-to-date liability insurance policy to cover any damages they may cause to your property. Before signing an agreement, make sure you understand the guarantees, what pests are covered and how long your agreement will be in force.
You should remain an active participant
It is very important that you remain an active participant before, during and after all pest control treatments. This improves communication and helps establish proper expectations between you and your technician.
