How to Hire a Professional Exterminator
We’ve mentioned why you should hire a professional exterminator, but do you really know how? It’s not as easy as searching the Yellow Pages or asking a neighbor. You need to find a company that offers it all – quality, price, care, professionals.
At Suburban Exterminating, we’ll show you what to look for as well as what we offer to prove that we’re the right choice for you.
- Assure that your choice is a member of a national, state, or local pest management association. Suburban Exterminating is a member of the National Pest Control Association, Long Island Pest Control Association, the New York Pest Control Association, and the Better Business Bureau.
- Ask your friends and neighbors about their experiences with certain companies. Most in-home care is advertised through word of mouth. We encourage all feedback and referrals!
- Make sure your pest control company is licensed. Suburban Exterminating is licensed by the New York State Department of Environment Conservation.
- Don’t rush into making a decision. It’s better to take your time and pick the right company first than have to hire someone later to fix what your first choice ruined.
- Do some research! Figure out what you have so you know if an exterminating company is trying to pull one over on you.Do some quick research on Suburban’s website! We have a pest identification page.
- Make sure the pest control company of your choice is a full-service pest control company! Suburban has a full carpentry division that handles anything from termite damage to a remodeled bathroom. Suburban Exterminating offers fumigation, green products and free inspections!
- Understand your guarantee. We are always happy to walk you through the terms of your contract.
- “Buy value, not price.”
- Be aware that you can contact the New York State Department of Environment Conservation (other states often have pesticide application under the State Department of Agriculture) at 518-402-8727 for information regarded pest control company status.
