After asking friends and colleagues for recommendations, you must still approach each commercial pest control company with a checklist that is guaranteed to help you make the right decision.
What Do You Need to Know?
One of the first questions on your checklist will be to clarify whether the commercial pest control company is qualified and licensed to operate. You may also prefer to check what memberships they hold of any pest management associations locally, within your state, or across the US.
You should expect that their team of experts will be individuals with years of experience, knowledge, and education in the trade.
As you ask each company to send you a bid for your work, it is not only the price that will help make your final decision. Listen to what they say and how they deal with any complaints. Any pest control company may make small errors, but it is how they rectify the problem that is most important to you.
Do Not Rush Your Choice
Unless you have an immediate problem, it is better not to rush into a decision. You will be paying for the service and any treatments they offer. It is better to wait and deal with a company who you can trust rather than making a hurried decision.
You will need to know if they have insurance liability cover in case they damage any of your property, even by accident. You should ask to see a copy of the insurance certificate to check that it is valid and they have it updated regularly.
Where they offer any guarantees, you should compare these between companies and consider that you are buying real values, not just paying the price offered.
