Goodbye Termites, Ants, and Roaches

The Basics of Pest Control Maintenance Contracts

One of the biggest challenges that many people struggle with is keeping pests out of their homes. Whether you own your home or are renting, pest infestations can happen, and they can be bothersome. For some homeowners, addressing pest problems as they occur is sufficient, but you may find that it's in your best interest to pursue a pest control maintenance contract instead. Here's a look at what you need to know about these service offerings.

What Is A Pest Control Maintenance Contract?

A pest control maintenance contract is an agreement with a pest control service to receive ongoing inspections and treatments according to the contract terms in exchange for a monthly service fee. You can opt for service contracts of all sorts, from exterior to interior services, or even a combination of both. Your pest control company will inspect your home and help you determine what types of services you'll benefit from in your ongoing contract.

Why Should You Consider A Pest Control Maintenance Contract?

You might wonder why you should sign a maintenance contract with your pest control company instead of just calling them when you need them. The fact is that, by the time you see insects or other pests in your home, there's far more of them than you might think. Waiting to call a pest control contractor until you see problems will leave you struggling with worse pest infestations than you might think.

With a maintenance contract, you'll have ongoing treatments that form and maintain a barrier in your home, protecting you from pests penetrating your home or surviving once they have gained entry. Additionally, the inspections that come with those treatments can help to recognize signs of infestations or other pest problems before they become truly detrimental to your home and your family.

How Often Do You Get Treatments With A Pest Control Maintenance Contract?

The frequency of your pest control treatments will vary based on your home's specific needs. In some cases, you may need treatment on a monthly basis, especially if you live in an area where pest problems are particularly rampant or you are fighting an active infestation.

In other situations, you may only need a visit and treatment on a quarterly basis. When you're just maintaining barriers, this is often the frequency that's recommended because the barrier products will last for several months at a time.
