Why We Thoroughly Vet Our Pest Staff

Like every reputable and reliable pest control company, we make sure to vet our pest staff. Each person who joins our company is given a thorough background check. There are several reasons why we do this.

The biggest reason why we vet our pest staff before hiring them is simply to ensure our customers’ safety. We want our clients to have total peace of mind and to know they are in safe hands. We also want to maintain the safety of other staff members.

Ensuring you get fully qualified exterminators

Another important reason why we run these checks is because it allows us to see if someone is suitably qualified. As you can imagine, many people fake their qualifications or lie about them. This can cause serious issues. For example, our pest staff work with hazardous chemicals.

If they are not qualified to use them, we want to know up front. For this reason, it’s extremely important that you only hire a pest control company who run thorough checks on all prospective technicians who want to join their team.

If a pest company clearly states in their job ad that they understand what a DBS check is, this is one way of attracting a professional, high level pest control staff. A reputable pest control will want to safeguard their reputation. Hiring well qualified, fully trained and experienced staff gives firms the edge over less scrupulous competitors.

Customer safety is our number one priority

The bottom line is that these checks are extremely important. After all, if your home has an infestation, pest controllers are going to spend a good deal of time in your home. You want to know your home and possessions are safe while you are out.

This is equally important when it comes to commercial pest control appointments. Knowing you have fully vetted individuals on your premises to supply a service is vital. It eliminates the risk of potential thieves taking a look around the place to determine what kind of security measure you have so they can come back and break in later. While this scenario is unlikely, we think it’s better to cover all bases and be as thorough with our vetting process as possible.
