Reputable pest control companies will give you a guarantee as to what they will provide. Every company offers a different type of guarantee for a different period of time. You should hire a pest control company that gives you a guarantee that your home will be pest free if you follow the contract exactly. This means you will have to allow the exterminators to return at certain times to inspect the property. The homeowner should follow the pest management plan in order for the guarantee to remain in effect. As a homeowner, you need to be an active player in pest control.
You will have to read the guarantee to see how long the contract is good for and what it covers. Most written contracts will include the initial elimination, periodic inspection and pesticide applications if needed to keep your home pest free. Warranties or guarantees are only good if the homeowner does what is expected of them. For instance, if you have debris around your yard that is attracting the pests over and over again, the pest control guarantee may become void. You have to do your part to keep the pest away.
Exterminators can only guarantee their services if the homeowner follows through with all the necessary guidelines. It is easier to spend a few dollars to have your home inspected to keep pests away than it is to spend hundreds of dollars to eliminate an infestation. Preventive maintenance is the key to keeping pests away. Ask the exterminator for a guarantee that is reasonable. This will help to protect your home from another infestation. Follow through with pest control and you should stay pest free after eliminating the infestation.
