What to Look for in a Commercial Pest Control Company

Maintaining a clean and sanitary workplace is a central responsibility in protecting your business from infestation, be it rodents or insects, as well as the property damage that sometimes results. Unfortunately, even the most pristine of businesses can fall victim to this issue, as pests can be hearty scavengers when they search for food, water, warmth and shelter.

If you find your workplace dealing with an infestation, or you simply want to prevent one, it’s important that you hire professionals you can trust.

Below are several factors to consider when looking for a pest control team.

1. Community Relationships & Reputation

As in any service-oriented industry, the pest control company you choose should have a good relationship with the community it serves. How long have they operated? Do they welcome feedback from customers, and do they make these reviews accessible to the public? It’s especially important that the company has consistently good customer reviews. Look at their website for reviews or ask directly for references. Reading what past clients have said provides key insight into the quality of services you can expect.

For two decades now, commercial and residential customers have trusted Eastline for our pest control solutions. Our customer feedback speaks for itself.

2. Experience, Training & Licenses

It’s critical that the team you choose has experience with all sorts of pest issues and that they are up-to-date on licenses. The company should also carry good insurance, which protects both you and their technicians from associated costs in the event of an accident while on the job. Our technicians are highly trained and fully licensed. We also stay on top of the best pest control practices from the North Carolina Structural Pest Control Committee.

3. Range of Service

We know that pest control issues are not limited to rodent infestations. That’s why it’s important that the company you hire is equipped to identify and handle anything that comes up during an inspection, from termite exterminations to moisture and mold control associated with pest issues. For example, there are more than 900,000 types of living insects in the world, more than 1,000 types1 in North Carolina alone, each with their own characteristics.

Can you trust your exterminators to properly identify and rid your building from a particular species? And do their services include termite inspections and extermination? These are important questions to ask.

4. Quotes & Cost of Service

On one hand, when it comes to quality pest control, you get what you pay for. But this doesn’t mean you should be faced with an unreasonable bill or additional fees after the service is complete. At Eastline, we guarantee free quotes and no hidden fees, and we always calculate taxes into your total bill.

5. Effective, Safe Treatment

A respected pest control company uses treatment solutions that are safe for your workers, clients and the environment – solutions that you simply can’t replicate on your own. DIY products can be detrimental to the environment if not used properly or not administered with the right tools. For example, improper use of pesticides can cause chemicals to infiltrate your water supply, gardens and even the air in your business. At Eastline, we use environmentally friendly products as part of our modern, effective practices to best protect your business.
