HOW TO FIND THE BEST PEST CONTROL COMPANY
It’s already a headache to discover that you have a pest problem, and sometimes it can be worse trying to find the right pest control company for your problem.
Even if you don’t choose Nova Pest Control to service your home, we want to help you out and give you a few tips to look for when hiring a company in the pest industry.
1. TALK TO FRIENDS
Ask your friends or local Facebook Groups you’re a part of what their experiences were with local pest control companies. Just because a company has a pretty brand, doesn’t mean they have a pretty reputation.
If you find a company with good reviews from friends, find them on Google or Yelp to see what other customers are saying. Keep in mind: Google and Yelp reviews are all written on complete personal customer experience. Don’t let a single 1 star review put a bad taste in your mouth if the company has 50 five star reviews. But, steer clear of the 2 star, 3 star average companies in your area. There may be a good reason why their ratings are so low!
2. CALL AND ASK QUESTIONS
So you’ve found a company with a solid reputation, now what? It can never hurt to give the company a call and see what type of education/training their technicians have. Ask specific questions based on your pest problem, like:
- What is their success rate with bedbugs?
- How do you decide what treatments are needed?
- How long will it take to eliminate the infestation?
- Are your pest control treatments safe for humans and pets?
- What if I’m not happy with the results?
In the end, trust your gut instinct when you’re asking these questions. If something sounds too good to be true -it probably is!
3. MAKE SURE THEY’RE INSURED
Accidents happen, but you don’t want to be the one to pay for someone else’s mistake! Tag this onto the questions you ask when you call around to different companies. Make sure the company is fully insured and doesn’t have a reputation of causing damage in homes!
When it comes to pest control, you do not want to find the cheapest and easiest. Although Nova Pest strives to keep our prices affordable for families of all incomes, we can guarantee that you’ll “get what you pay for” with a cheap pest control company. If they say they will eliminate your pest problem in 1 service if you pay $X and your infestation continues, you just lost out of money and will more than likely have to start with a new company. Paying for a good company upfront will see you money in the long run…trust us!
