Consumer Alert: Local Pest Control Company DOES NOT Warranty Their Work.
During the inspection process, it was determined that the home being purchased in Huntsville, Texas had termites. Of course, we asked for termite treatment.
I received a report back showing that the termite treatment had been completed by a licensed Huntsville, Texas Pest Control Company AND and it also stated:
“No warranty guaranteed or implied on the above treatment.”
REALLY? I was certain there was an error. I called the listing agent who said that they had not seen the report, and did not know that the work was not guaranteed. I believe that, because WHAT agent would recommend that their client pay BIG BUCKS for termite treatment that did not come with some kind of warranty?
The Huntsville Texas Pest Control Company contacted me and sure enough, they do not guarantee their work. His explained to me that he stands behind his work but he will not put it in writing. He just couldn't do that.
The Huntsville Texas Pest Control Company then went on to tell me that all of those other Huntsville Texas Pest Control Companies that DO offer warranties make you renew the warranty after a year.
IF you want the warranty for another year, yes, they do. But MOST ( and I now realize -- NOT ALL) warranty their work FOR A YEAR from the date that the work is done.
It kind of makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
I mean.... the reason you get a warranty is because they do not expect to hear from you. They have used the right amount of product and applied it properly.
Hmm-mm.... what are they afraid of?
Consumer BEWARE! Not all Huntsville Texas Pest Control Companies are alike.
ASK BEFORE you hire some one to do the job, and GET IT IN WRITING.
Warranties vary from company to company and specific conditions can void a warranty. Please ASK what your warranty covers BEFORE agreeing to services. Make sure your contract has the warranty in writing.
