5 Things to Look into Before Booking Pest Control Services

If you can’t deal with these pests on your own, you may need to book professional pest control services. According to this article, the Dubai government is said to have sanctioned programmes to train nearly 100 companies, and they are reevaluated every 3 months.

Here are a 5 things to watch out for when you evaluate pest control services in Dubai.

Have you done your research? Read to understand more about the pest infesting your home, and recommendations on how to deal with them. If the situation is too bad for you to deal with it yourself, call in the professionals. Be aware that different pests require different ways to deal with them.

Does the company have good reviews? Speak to your friends to see who they recommend (and equally, who they don’t). Go online on forums like expatwoman.com. Visit the company’s website to make sure they are legit. And make sure you hire a pest control company that is approved by the Dubai Municipality.

Ask the right questions. Check with the company about its mode of treatment (spray/gel/etc.). Find out how long it will take and whether there are any restrictions. Ask about the chemicals used and their toxicity. Watch out if they say they use tablets (these are thought to contain harmful gases) or that you need to leave the house for a day or so.

Check prices: Ask them for an estimate. This is usually determined by the size of your house and the severity of the infestation, but most pest control companies have price slabs and there is a benchmark most companies stick to. If the quote is too high or too low, beware!

Compare: Speak to three or four pest control agencies. Compare costs, methods and overall customer service. Are they approachable? Can they answer your questions? Are they sure of their methods? Are they willing to discuss them? Ask about their license and whether they can show you a MDSS (Materials Data Safety Sheet).

Once you’ve done the groundwork, call in the pest control company and get set to enjoy a pest-free existence in the UAE!

    I like how you encourage people to ask the right questions before they go out and hire a pest control company. Ideally you want to be able to find out everything beforehand so that you can prepare for that visit, especially if their visit will require you leave the house for a few days. You’ll also want to make sure that they either don’t use any toxins that could accidentally kill your pets or make sure that they clean up all of their mess so that your pet doesn’t accidentally find the toxin when you get home.
