Pest Control and Plumbing: How to Choose the Right One

by Florabel D. Data Analyst / SEO / Research

Are you aware that having pests at home also has something to do with your plumbing? That means that problems related to your home’s plumbing system, such as clogged drains and broken pipes, could be the reason that pests are drawn to your household. It is, therefore, important to keep your plumbing equipment in proper maintenance. Otherwise, the chance of getting a pest infestation is high and you need to consider contacting a pest control expert as well as a plumbing company to fix your plumbing issues.

However, choosing the right pest control company and plumbing service provider can be quite a tricky task. While you may find countless companies offering pest control and plumbing services, you have to be careful when selecting who to invite and inspect your property. You must ensure you get your problem resolved instead of being escalated.

So, how do you know that you have picked the right people for the job? The following guidelines will help you choose the company that would offer you quality services whether it is about eliminating pests or addressing your plumbing needs:

  1. Company license

The very basic thing you need to look into in a company before you avail yourself of its services is their qualifications. You must make sure that the company owns a valid business license or any certification issued by the state or local agency. A company without the required license to operate is enough reason for you to question its credibility. If you are dealing with pest problems—bed bugs, for example—you have to be clear about whether or not the pest control company you are contacting is licensed and certified to perform treatment methods such as bed bug heat treatment. 

  1. Company track record

One wise move you can take to validate a pest control or a plumbing company’s reputation is to check its background. Does it have a good track record? To answer this question, it is much better if you do a personal research of the organization’s history in terms of unresolved complaints or issues surrounding the quality of their services. Call the right agencies or authorities that could attest to the company’s reliability.

  1. Referrals

If you are worried about getting services from the wrong company, your friends and neighbors can be of help. They can provide you with good recommendations of service providers whom they trust and, of course, you can count on their words more than anyone else. Don’ hesitate to ask those people you know for referrals for they would be more than happy to assist you. 

  1. Customer reviews

In connection to number 2, you may also browse customer reviews online to find out more about the company’s track record. Prior customers are a great source of information for they can present proof of the company’s product quality. One thing is for sure: Competent companies or organizations are well-esteemed by people, clients, and other tradesmen. 

  1. Insurance

This is also an important aspect that you must consider when checking out a company’s credibility. A trustworthy and qualified plumber or pest control agent is willing to show you documents proving that his/her company is insured. In case accidents occur during the plumbing repair or during the application of chemical or pesticides, you will be protected through the company’s insurance.

  1. Affiliations

A truly legit organization is normally a member of professional trade associations which only shows their sincerity being in the industry. You can get in touch with associations the company of your choice is affiliated with. This will allow you to have an overview of the organization’s policies, code of ethics, and guidelines in terms of how the company delivers or executes its services (i.e. bed bug heat treatment, chemical treatment, pipe replacement, etc.). You can also discuss with them your specific preferences and concerns.

When it comes to finding a company that best suits your needs and preferences, you really have to consider factors such as the company’s track record, customer reviews, affiliations, and qualifications. This way, you will have no regrets in the end and you can avoid additional and unnecessary damages to your home or property. Most of all, be extra careful with the marketing tactics delivered by salespersons. Before you say yes, as the client, you have to do your homework and personally investigate the company’s background and reputation in the business.
