As a home owner, you will want to keep your home pest free all year long. It’s crucial to your family’s health. Pests breed incredibly quickly, and some can go about spreading disease through your home without a care in the world. In this post, we are going to share our list of things you can expect from a pest control expert when they first visit your home.
Like our team at Pest Exterminators Essex, any professional will get to you on time. They should be dressed in a smart uniform, and come equipped with everything they need to get the job done.
Our pest control expert will always introduce themselves in a polite and friendly manner. We want you to feel completely at ease with our employees being in your home. It is particularly important to foster trust in this situation, because they need to have access to the entire property. If you have thought of any questions or are concerned about anything at all, you should let them know when you first meet them.
Looking For Entry Points
The next thing an exterminator will want to do is give your home a full inspection to look for any entry points where the pest may have got in.
They will focus on areas like windows, lofts, garages, walls and doors to find the root of the problem. We offer a free site survey to all our new customers. Whether you are a residential owner of a commercial business, the same applies.
Even if it’s cold out, a thorough pest controller may still want to take a look at your garden. They will also want to take a look at the outside walls and property boundaries.
In addition, they may need to look in any other buildings you have on your property. The whole process can help them eliminate any elements that could be attracting pests into your home. Or allowing the pests access.
Checking For Damp
One of the biggest things a pest will look for in someone’s property a is reliable water source. Damp and moisture in the home will attract a lot of pests. A pest technician will look at areas of your home where moisture could be building up. They will give you feedback on the situation and remedial advice.
Once they have inspected the property, our pest control expert may take some time to put all of the information they’ve gathered together. In most cases, they will give you a report on their findings.
Then they can discuss what the best plan of action will be to get rid of pests in your home, and submit those treatment options to you for approval.
Preventing Further Infestations
As well as treating existing infestations, our company can help with pest proofing and prevention. We are always available to do follow up visits if required. To stop pests from coming back to your home once our job is complete, you can make it much less attractive to them. A few ways you can easily do this is by:
- Making any food and leftovers are cleaned up.
- Keeping leftovers in a tightly sealed container.
- Move your bins further away from the home.
- Remove clutter and overgrowth from the garden.
- Fill in holes around the house to stop pest access.
If you want to go ahead with the regime your pest control expert has proposed, we will either deliver them straight away, or come back when it is appropriate and convenient.
