How to Choose a Bed Bug Company
Bed bugs are a real threat here in Colorado and Wyoming. In recent years, we have seen a significant increase in bed bug activity, especially in the Denver Metro Area and the surrounding suburbs. As a result, there have been many companies that have found an opportunity to take advantage of the issue by offering bargain treatments to unsuspecting customers looking for a quick resolution. Explore our hints below to help inform your decision.
How to Choose a Bed Bug Company You Can Trust
And How Not to Get Sucked Into a Bargain Bed Bug Treatment
At A2B Solutions, we’re a community-focused company that always has our customers’ safety, health, and well-being in mind. We want to help you find the very best, most effective solution to your bed bug problem, even if that means you choose to work with another bed bug exterminator. The last thing we want is for any of our friends or neighbors in Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, and the surrounding areas to be hoodwinked by a bargain treatment claiming to be the best. Here are some tips you ought to consider as you search for the best bed bug treatment for your needs.
Do Your Research
We encourage you to do your due diligence when you are searching for a bed bug treatment. You can learn a lot about a company if you take the time to do so. Better yet, doing a little digging can save you time, money, stress, and repeated treatments.
Are They Accredited?
First and foremost, check that the bed bug exterminator is accredited. Many companies claim to be accredited with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or members of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), when in all actuality, they’re not. Surprisingly, many companies actually get away with it because, unfortunately, many people don’t check the company’s accreditation. If you search for them on these and other websites and you can’t find them, move on to the next company. It’s simply not worth the risk.
Are They Licensed?
Additionally, you want to ensure that the company you work with is licensed and insured for your protection and theirs. The company should be licensed in your state and have the supporting documentation to prove it. What’s more, be sure to ask if they are insured, which will protect you and them should injury or damage occur during your bed bug removal. Keep in mind that all pest control companies are required to obtain insurance in order to operate under Colorado’s pest management guidelines.
Do They Have Excellent Reviews?
Next, you will want to check the company’s reviews and ratings. This is a surefire way to separate the reputable bed bug exterminators from the bad ones. Visit top review platforms to read what actual customers are saying. For instance, when you visit Top Rated Local®, you will see that A2B Solutions is listed as an award-winning, Top Rated Local® bed bug company with an average rating score of 99.89. You will want to check several verified review sites to help inform your decision. These might include Google, Angie’s List, Home Advisor, Yelp, and Facebook, to ensure they are highly recommended in your area. Good reviews are okay, but you don’t want to settle for any less than the best. That’s why choosing a company with excellent reviews and ratings is the best way to go.
Don’t Bargain Shop
When it comes to bed bugs in your home or business, you want to eliminate the problem immediately, and with good reason. In most cases, bugs won’t just go away on their own; quite the opposite, in fact. If a bed bug problem goes unaddressed, the issue typically only gets worse, causing more stress and fear for you and your family. But that doesn’t mean you should bargain shop when it comes to bed bug treatments. Some companies offer cheap rates calculated by the square footage, which may seem like a deal — at first. The thing is, if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Trust your gut. And don’t put the health and safety of yourself, your family, your pets, and your home at risk.
Don’t Fall Victim to Bargain Deals
Bargain deals are almost always ineffective and typically require repeat treatments over the course of several weeks, months, or longer. While it is normal for bed bugs to return in some cases, you want to ensure that your initial treatment comes with some type of follow up treatment should bed bugs return.
Explore Your Treatment Options
At A2B Solutions, we want our customers to feel 100% confident in the bed bug treatments we provide. That’s why we offer competitive prices and guarantees of up to 18 months with our bed bug heat treatments. This is just one more way we uphold our unwavering commitment to 100% customer satisfaction.
Interview Bed Bug Companies
During your search for the best bed bug exterminator, don’t be afraid to ask questions about their services. Before you settle on a bed bug company, here are some questions you ought to ask them:
- How many years of experience do you have?
- Do you provide free, no-obligation inspections?
- Is your company licensed and registered in accordance with state laws?
- Do you have liability insurance?
- Are your bed bug technicians certified?
- Are you discreet?
- Can you provide me with a preparation guide?
- What techniques do you use to detect bed bugs?
- Do you provide follow-up treatments?
These are just a few of the questions you might consider asking during your search. Additionally, below you can explore the benefits you’ll enjoy when you partner with A2B Solutions for your bed bug removal. Check it out!
Ask Them About Their Approach
One of the most important questions you should ask is about their approach and methods. Asking a company about their approach can help you prepare your home accordingly, and may indicate how long you can expect until the bed bugs are gone.
Chemical vs. Heat Treatments: What’s the Difference?
Many bed bug companies use chemical-based treatments that are risky for people, pets, and the environment. What’s more, chemical treatments require repeated treatments every few weeks that can last from a few to several months, depending on the complexity of the infestation.
On the other hand, A2B Solutions uses chemical-free bed bug heat treatments that are safer for you, your family, your pets, and the environment. Not only that, but heat treatments are also much more efficient because the heat penetrates every corner of your home, killing every last bed bug from egg to adult. After all, there is no heat-resistant bed bug! Moreover, our triple-heating method can be completed in 8-12 hours. But don’t be fooled by the quickness of our method. While we can completely eliminate bed bugs in up to 12 hours, we take our time, ensuring supreme thoroughness for maximum kill rate.
Remember These Tips When Searching for a Bed Bug Treatment
- Do your research by checking credentials and reviews.
- Don’t bargain shop for bed bug treatments.
- Don’t fall for bargain deals.
- Don’t be afraid to interview companies.
- Do ask companies about their approach and methods.
