What To Look For When Selecting A Commercial Pest Control Contract

Across the world, 15% of businesses had their revenue impacted due to a loss of customers and reputational damage because of pest infestations. Taking out a pest control contract can help to prevent this from happening to your business. This blog looks into 7 things to look out for when taking out an annual contract with a pest control company.

By far, the most powerful tool when it comes to pest control is having prevention measures in place. To protect your business and have peace of mind that rodents and insects won’t damage your property, stock, or reputation, it’s advised to take out a pest control contract with a reputable company. With many businesses now offering these services, it’s important to understand what to look out for when committing to a contract, so you have a stress-free and pest-free experience. 

Here are 7 considerations to bear in mind when securing an annual contract:

1. Do They Have The Correct Qualifications For The Job?

One of the most vital aspects to consider when securing a commercial pest control contract is whether the company has the right qualifications in place. 

To ensure that you get a professional service, which stays up to date with any changes to regulations or safety measures, then you need experts that are members of the National Pest Control Technicians Association (NPTA). This professional trade association represents all sectors within the public health and pest control industry and ensures that members can effectively alleviate your pest control problems using accomplished methods. This, along with being registered with PROMPT, which provides independent proof that a pest controller has received proper training and continues to update their expertise.

Confirm A Kill are proud members of both, so you can rely on us to provide a first class service, using the most up to date pest control techniques.

2. How Much Experience Does The Pest Control Company Have? 

Like when taking on any work within your homes or business, it’s crucial to do a little research and check that the service provider is both experienced, knowledgeable, and reputable.

By checking how long the business has been in operation and reading reviews of their services, you’ll quickly gain an insight if they are the right people for the job, who can provide the best solutions for your pest control needs. 

Our company was first established in 1992 as a family run business in Nottingham. Now, we have over 25 years experience in dealing with a wide variety of pests in different locations and situations, from domestic pest control to commercial pest control and preventative measures to maintain a pest free status. More than that, we value our customers and work hard to offer a discreet, reliable, and friendly service to satisfy our client’s needs. 

3. Do They Take Safety Precautions Seriously?

Safety is of paramount importance within the pest industry:

  • Ensure pest control experts will wear protective equipment whilst working on your property. 
  • Try and seek out a company that uses environmentally friendly products. For example, we adhere to CRRU UK code of best practice to correctly use rodenticides in a way that will minimise the exposure to wildlife and all of our technicians are professionally trained to Royal Society of Health certification standards as a minimum. 
  • Check that the company you are choosing is fully insured in case an accident happens whilst on your premises. This ensures your business is protected against being held liable. Our team is fully insured with public liability insurance up to £5 million pounds, to give you a measure of what to expect from others. 

4. Are Contracts Tailored To Meet Your Needs?

Every business is different, and it’s important the company you are selecting understands that. Make sure that the company is flexible around your unique requirements.

We understand the necessity to be discreet when undertaking our work and we want to cause minimal disruption to your business operations. That’s why we create each pest control contract tailored to meet your specific business needs

If you choose us to deal with your pest problem, you will receive scheduled visits at regular intervals throughout the year for routine inspections. This will allow us to create a customised treatment plan and provide you with written reports at the end of each visit. Should you have a visit from an environmental officer, there is written evidence, and paperwork available on site for them to view. This allows you to quickly and easily demonstrate that you have adequate pest control measures and procedures in place.

5. Is Their Pricing Fair? 

Competitive pricing is a must for any business. When choosing a pest control company to provide a contract for your commercial business, like we provide, check that they:

  • Offer a no-quibble guarantee their services.
  • They provide free insect identification services. This can help to identify signs of pests in your business if you are unsure whether you have a problem. 
  • Provide competitive rates with free no obligation quotations. 

Our team pride ourselves on our work and the fair pricing that we provide, that’s why we are happy to beat any genuine quotation for a like for like service.

6. Do They Offer A Wide Range of Services?

When it comes to pest control, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why it’s vital to make sure the pest control technicians you select for your business can provide a magnitude of services to help eliminate all problems effectively

We provide you with a total pest control solution. Our pest prevention and treatment services are delivered by experts in public and environmental health. We offer the highest levels of service from trained and qualified staff with many years of experience.

7. Do They Offer A Prompt Service?

Our contracts run for a 12 month period and include both emergency call outs and scheduled visits to provide and maintain a prompt pest-free status.
