With the fall season upon us, you may see many promotions for pest control services from companies you haven’t heard of before or solo technicians who don’t work with a company. This often happens in the fall months and during hurricane season. Unfortunately, it’s a common problem in our industry, and Pestech of Greenville is spreading awareness to inform consumers in eastern North Carolina so you can avoid these types of scams.
No matter where you live, even if you’re outside of the Pestech service area in North Carolina, we’re offering tips to keep you and your family safe:
Check the Company’s License
Be sure to always ask about a pest control company’s professional license. You can check on the status of a professional license via some easy-to-use websites like: https://apps.ncagr.gov/agrsysportal/publiclicensesearch/index.
This website will conduct a real-time license check and can also cross-reference it with federal and state regulatory agencies. You can even go a step further by contacting your city or municipality’s regulatory agency to inquire about the status of a pest control company’s license.
Ask for a Service Guarantee
Working with a company that provides a service guarantee will give you peace of mind that your purchase will be backed and you’ll get what you expect. At Pestech of Greenville, your experience is always our guarantee. We promise to deliver safe and effective pest control results while keeping you, your family, and our environment safe.
Make Sure They’re Insured
Although specifics can vary from state to state, pest-control companies are required to buy liability insurance. One way to distinguish a reputable company is to see whether the company has purchased more than the bare minimum. This extra coverage can include general liability, professional liability, crime, property damage, and personal injury. Always ask your technician to provide you with relevant documents before you allow them to spray chemicals in your home.
Look for References and Reviews
Before hiring a pest control company, take the time to research and read any reviews. A reputable company should have a strong web presence and active social media pages for you to read over. If a pest control company is taking part in shady practices, there will likely be several customers who have expressed their unhappiness via a review.
Find Their BBB Rating
Since its inception in 1912, the Better Business Bureau has been an easy and effective way to check a company’s legitimacy. The BBB prides itself on rating businesses based on their reliability and performance. Pestech of Greenville is an Accredited Business with the Better Business Bureau of Eastern North Carolina and we are proud to carry an A+ rating.
