3 Golden Rules to Choosing A Trusted And Reputable Termite Control Company
Finding termites in your home or business can be stressful but selecting the right termite control company does not have to be. When most discover termites in their premises, they would want to remove them immediately. Homeowners, renters and landlords like yourself may want to control household termites through DIY methods. For example, you can cover the cracks in your walls, especially those that are in contact with the ground. This can sometimes remove the obvious entry points that are providing them access to your home or business.
However, this does not actually get rid of your problem. Also, some infestations may be too extensive to handle with quick fixes, and that is where engaging a pest management professional is necessary. Such professionals are no doubt skilled in their work, but there are so many to choose from. You may want to find a reasonably-priced company as a priority, but there are other critical factors to consider apart from the cost of the services.
Below are three golden rules to consider in hiring a termite control company to best meet your needs:
Do some research:
- The very first thing you need to look into is the kind of services they provide. It can be helpful giving them a call to understand how they will tailor their solutions to treat your problem. Compare the various methods between companies and also remember to check if the company is NEA-certified. The pest control company has to have an existing and valid certification with the National Environment Agency (NEA). This assures you that the process, technology and chemical used in the extermination procedure will not cause harm to you and to the environment. It is best to take your time to select a competent, reputable and reasonably priced company.
- How safe your place is from termites depends on what kind of treatment your selected pest control company uses to eliminate them. Certain treatment options and products can be dangerous and harmful if used improperly. According to the NEA, for chemical treatment, termiticides for soil treatment that contain Hazardous Substances controlled under the Environmental Protection and Management Act (EPMA) and the Environmental Protection and Management (EPM) (Hazardous Substances) Regulations must be approved before they are sold. It is important to confirm that the pest control company prioritizes health and safety as much as they do to eliminate pests.
- For starters, you can ask around for recommendations from your friends and family if they had faced a similar problem as yours. You can also check for reviews and testimonials. In order to make the most out of your services, you will need to choose someone who has a lot of experience in this field of work and is able to help solve your pest problem efficiently. And the people who are most reliable in giving information like that will be customers like yourself. See what people are saying about the company, if they are satisfied with the results of the treatment. You can then be more certain that the pest control company you hire will do a good job.
Even if the pest management service is priced at a cheaper rate, it does not necessarily mean that it will be good. In fact, a much cheaper company can be a warning sign! This is why cost should not be the only factor that determines the company you pick. It is particularly important to look for a reputable company who will perform the job well to effectively prevent future infestations.
