If you’ve ever gotten around to search for a pest control company in Albany, there’s a huge possibility that you’ve come across an extensive list on Google. But is that local company down the street qualified to do the work and rid your house of pest threat? How can you really trust a pest control service? In this blog, we discuss the most important things homeowners must do before they pick up their phone and dial for the nearest pest control service.
Make sure the company is authorized and is a member of a pest control association
Not every company that starts up business will have the proper license to practice. In that case if you do end up hiring such a company, you’re making a risky move. You might find yourself short-changed or you might find the exterminator didn’t really exterminate the rat problem in your attic.
Members of the local, national or state pest control association are qualified in their work. The fact that they have a membership is already a good sign and you might want to consider hiring it. These companies are not only trained, they also need to abide by all the rules and regulations set by the state.
Go through their portfolio
Even if a company is fully licensed to work, there’s still a chance they might not have a good work history. One way to judge the performance of a pest control service is by asking for recommendations, inquiring about their previous clients and going through their portfolios and client testimonials. If you can, you should talk to a former client in person about the pest control team.
Familiarize yourself with the contract agreement
Before you seal the deal and hire the pest exterminator you have in mind, it’s absolutely necessary that you read the contract agreement and understand what kind of services the company will provide to you. This includes the techniques and methods the company plans to use, and any guarantees they are willing to give as well.
