12 Dec '17

Do you need to prepare? Can you trust their employees to handle your home with care?

Here are some guidelines detailing what you should expect.

Preparing for Your
Pest Control Service Visit

The business that you have chosen, whether due to good online ratings or a referral from a friend, should contact you before they arrive at your house to discuss their upcoming service with you. During this conversation they should ask about your availability and set up a time slot for you treatment.

These time slots are usually somewhat tentative as the they will arrive somewhere in between the two specified times you've chosen. Sometimes the pest control company will prefer that you remove animals or children from the home. They may also suggest that you put all your exposed food away in a pantry or refrigerator.

Making sure that your home is free of clutter and can be easily walked through is also helpful as it helps the service go by a little bit more quickly.

Meeting Your Pest Control Technician

The technician should arrive within your designated time slot and should not be late. You should expect he or she to appear very clean and well kept. Their gear should not be messy, leaking or dirty in any way. Before they enter your home, request that he or she show you their proof of identification from their company, if they have not done so already.

Beginning the Treatment Process

Once your pest control specialist has given you a proper introduction, they will ask you to begin guiding them through your home. You will need to point out every problem area in detail. Describe what you have seen, where, how often and how much.

This will give them a better idea of what needs to be done to treat the problem. Feel free to ask your technician as many questions as you need to during this time. They will then explain how they will be conducting the treatment in detail.

An inspection will take place in all the aforementioned areas of your home, mostly so that the service expert can properly identify the types of pests that they are dealing with and treat them appropriately. Once the technician feels informed enough to begin their pest control service, treatment will begin.

After Treatment

Once the expert has finished the treatment, they should provide you with a report stating the details of the service. They may suggest some home repairs depending on the pest problem.

They may also provide you with a list of short-term steps you need to take to avoid the treated areas.

It will be up to you to schedule a follow-up Arizona pest control service, although some companies prefer a monthly contract to ensure your home stays pest-free.

Client Charles M., Mesa

I'm so very happy with Custom Weed & Pest Control. I had extremely tenacious weeds, and while they had to come out multiple times to get rid of them, it was covered under my warranty. Now they're gone, and I couldn't be happier.
