Pests like cockroaches and rats can be a real headache especially if they keep cropping up despite using all types of pesticides and methods which could be quite hazardous. It will come to a point where you will feel that ‘enough is enough’ and you need to call in the professionals. So if you are going to get the pest control company to eradicate those pesky pests which are eating up your clothes and contaminating your food, you should consider the following:
– Always shortlist a few pest control companies before deciding. There are some which are specialized in large spaces and those that are experts in eradicating only a certain type of pest like rats. If you are trying to get rid of cockroaches or termites, find those who have experience in these areas. Get recommendations from friends and families.
Plan of Action
– When you approach the shortlisted companies, ensure that they have a plan for your home. They will usually provide you with a specific schedule of when they will visit your home and what they will do.
– Start with a budget. You must inform the pest control company on how much you are willing to pay for the services. This is very important because it could be a single-visit charge or a yearly maintenance fee where they will come by once every 2 months which could cost a lot more. So be sure to confirm the cost before agreeing to anything or any contracts.
Ask About Pesticides
– As the paying customer, you have the freedom to ask and enquire about what type of pesticides the company is using. This is because you do not want any hazardous material in your home which could be dangerous. This must be made a priority if you have children in your home as you do not want a toddler crawling on the floor being exposed to chemicals that might be damaging to health and growth.
– Arranging the schedule for the pest control company to come to your home can be quite challenging. So you need to engage the company that is flexible to accommodate to your time. You will most likely have to take a half day off from work so that the company can come by and when the children are not around. In most cases, after they have placed the chemicals, it will take a few hours to sink in which is the time frame that you should allocate.
