Different companies take different approaches to longer-term service contracts. Some push for them, and some don’t require them. It can vary according to the type of pest or severity of the infestation, too. But before you enter into a service contract, consider the following:
The contract should detail the treatment plan, the length of service, the cost of the contract, any guarantees, and—just as importantly—how you can take advantage of those guarantees.
One big question with a contract is the frequency of service. The service frequency can have a big impact on price, so make sure that you won’t be paying for more service than you’ll need.
Finally, look at the length of the contract, and what opportunity you’ll have to get out of it early. Even if a company has a guarantee, you may need to break the contact for other reasons.
