How then, do you pick out the best pest control company in Essex? To give you a helping hand, we’ve put together this list of tips.

Look For a Company That’s Licensed

It could be bird control in Chelmsford, mouse control in Brentwood or insect pest control in Basildon. Either way, this is probably the first thing you should look for. It is an indication that, like Pest Exterminators Essex, the company has been officially authorised to offer pest control solutions. Not only that, but it is also an indication their staff have been properly trained and that they use tried and tested equipment and products.

Do They Offer the Particular Services You Need?

It’s important to note that although they share the same business sector, not all pest control companies in Essex deal with the same pest issues. So, you need to bear that in mind when looking for a pest control company.

Are They Members of Industry Recognised Organisations?

Finding a company in the pest control industry with the stamp of approval from an industry-recognised organisation is also important. It requires high standards to be given membership to organisations such as the National Pest Technicians Association and British Pest Control Association, or NPTA and BPCA for short.

Therefore, if you come across any companies, like ourselves, with the BPCA symbol on their website, they are worth investigating further.

Do They Offer a Guarantee?

Knowing that a pest control offers a guarantee is a good sign. It means they are willing to put their money where their mouths are when it comes to their work. What the actual guarantee means, and entails, can differ greatly from one company to the next. So, it might be worth enquiring about the finer details. Feel free to call us and ask us to break down what is involved in our own guarantee!

Are They Insured?

When you are having any work done in or around your home by contractors, it’s important to know they are insured. For instance, our own company‘s work is insured to a very high degree. You wouldn’t let a plumber or electrician carry out work on your property without insurance. So why do that with pest control?!Insurance is provided to offer protection for you if any accidents or damages occur while they are completing work for you.

When it comes to insurance and pest companies, you need to look for insured firms. Choose one who specifically offer their services with an insurance backing against their accidentally polluting your property. Even more crucially, you need to check how much they will compensate you when things go wrong.

Are They Willing to Discuss The Treatment With You?

Although we’ve mentioned this quite far down the page, it is essential that you choose a pest control company that are willing to discuss things with you. No two pest infestations are exactly alike. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find two that are the same. That is why you know you’re onto something with a company if they don’t try to use a one-solution-for-all approach. Here at Pest Exterminators Essex, we will always offer as much information as you need. Either in person or on the phone.

Ask us when you speak to our customer service representatives about our approach to pest problems. They will explain how we tackle the particular species you have problems within your property.
