Pest Control Canberra

The warranties carried by A1 Pest Control Canberra is considered to be the industry Standard. This means that you can relax and leave all the worrying about pests to our highly trained and professional technicians.

What Happens After My Treatment?

Following your treatment, you may notice some pests initially; this is part of the process as they become more active over the next few weeks. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for the treatment to take full effect. During this time, an increase in pest activity may occur, lasting about 2 weeks as the treatment starts to eliminate the pests. The full benefits of the treatment should be apparent after 4 weeks. It is recommended to remove all cobwebs 6 weeks post-treatment to maximize its effectiveness. Please note that we cannot control the formation of all spider webs, and no warranty services will be provided until the initial elimination period has concluded.

Why don’t we offer Warranty on some Services?

Regarding rodents, it is virtually impossible to completely prevent them from entering your home. Rodents are sociable animals, and although baits can eliminate the rodents currently infesting your home, they cannot prevent new rodents from entering and establishing new nests. The most effective prevention method is to block their entry points into your home. As for bed bugs, they typically hitch a ride on bags and luggage. Their eggs can remain dormant for up to six months, hatching when exposed to body heat or carbon dioxide. Frequent travelers or those hosting international visitors are at a higher risk of introducing new bed bug eggs into their homes. Even children may bring them home from places like daycare.

Where will you retreat?

A service call is not a complete re-treatment but a thorough investigation and re-application to the area that only the technician identifies as the source of the issue. A warranty treatment may take under 30 minutes to complete.

The first step is to wait 4 to 6 weeks after your initial treatment to allow it to achieve maximum effectiveness. Next, please confirm that you have adhered to all our guidelines, both those provided verbally and in writing, to eliminate any conditions in your home that could attract pests. Finally, we request that you submit photos of the ongoing issue. These photographs are crucial for our pest control experts to properly evaluate the situation and formulate an effective strategy.

What Voids Your Warranty?

Warranty claims may be voided if you do not follow all our verbal and written recommendations. This includes disturbing treated areas, making changes to your building or garden, introducing infested materials, or using over-the-counter pest control sprays. Household and store-bought pest control products are generally of lower quality and often have a different chemical composition than the commercial-grade chemicals we use. These products can interfere with our treatments, rendering them ineffective. Therefore, using such products after our treatment will result in the forfeiture of your warranty.

Warranty Periods for your Termite Inspection

What warranty do you offer for your termite inspection? Regrettably, there is no warranty for termite inspections, just as home insurance does not cover termite damage. However, a termite inspection serves as the initial step in effective termite management. We utilize the latest technology to inspect your property thoroughly.

Warranty Periods for your Termite Treatment

What is the warranty for your termite treatment? The warranty details for your termite treatment will be included in your quotation and agreement. Should any issues arise with your termite treatment, we will provide a complimentary service under your warranty, provided that all agreed-upon treatment plans have been adhered to throughout the warranty period.

Warranty Periods for your Commercial Property

What is the warranty for your commercial property? The warranty for a commercial property will be specified in your quotation and agreement. Should an issue arise with a specified pest, we will provide a complimentary spot treatment. However, given the nature of the environment and continuous food sources, many commercial properties may require controlled applications to prevent future pest infestations. Additional services will be quoted upon request.
