If you google, “Pest control companies” in Perth, you’ll be overwhelmed with options. You may be shocked to know that there are over 1000 licensed pest control operators to choose from. This can be a daunting process but if you are armed with the right questions and you take your time and do your research, you will have your pests under control in no time.
The first and most obvious question you should ask is how long the business has been operating. Not to discount the newer businesses but there is a peace of mind that comes with industry experience and the level of knowledge that an established business has.
Don’t forget to ask for references. Any pest control business should be able to provide you with honest testimonies and reviews from previous clients and some simple online research can often equip you with some background about the company.
I don’t know about you but it is more and more important to me these days, to make sure the companies I use are environmentally aware and compliant. I want to know what the chemicals are that are being used in my home or business and how they impact my family or business as well as the environment. It is never a good idea to be uninformed when it comes to chemicals so make sure you ask what is being used and the rate it being used at.
It is also super important to ask about the guarantees or warranties that the work comes with. There is nothing worse than having your house sprayed for spiders only to find spiders in your laundry 3 months later and yes, I am speaking from experience. You will want to know how long the treatment should be effective for and what the company will do if it is unsuccessful. In terms of termites, it is also paramount that you ask about structural damage coverage. Should a pest control company come and treat your space for termites only to have them return and go on to cause actual, structural damage, you will want to know that the company has insurance coverage for that eventuality.
Of course, you will want to ask about prices and like any business, pest control companies prices will vary. Cheaper is not always better and likewise, high cost does not always equal a quality service. The cheaper option can often be less efficient, leaving you back where you started so be sure to ask the right pricing questions at crunch time.
You’ll need ask about how much time they will require. A lot of pest control companies in Perth will be booked up ahead of time so it is important that you ask how soon they can get to you and how long the actual job will take.
At the end of the day, the right combination of experience, price and personal preference will prevail and hopefully, finding your Perth pest control person will be a piece of cake.
