Maintenance Contracts are designed to keep an area pest free and demonstrate to a third party that you are showing due diligence regarding pest control. They are a preventative and pro-active form of pest control. All Clear Round Pest Control Services Maintenance contracts are tailored to the individual clients requirements and ensure that the client is not paying for an element of a contract that is not required.
Clear Round Pest Services contract clients include Private Schools, Factories, Public Houses, Hotels, Restaurants, Shops, Private Houses, Nursing Homes, Storage Premises, Catering and Food Processing Establishments, Industrial Units, Agricultural Premises, Councils and even an airfield (a client list is available if required). Clear Round Pest Services also provide pest control cover for a number of letting agents.
All of these have differing requirements but as a rule, the basic type of contract would be to monitor and control rats and mice and in the case of food premises monitoring for crawling insects as well.
Should the client require it, then other options can be included in the contract, i.e. wasps, ants, squirrels, moles, pigeons etc.
Should a new client have an existing problem, then this would be treated on a job basis until it was under control and only then would a contract be gone ahead with.
A typical contract would consist of a minimum of 8 visits per year with extra visits included if required, through the course of the year. This is the recognised industry standard as the time between visits does not allow the breeding cycle of rats and mice to be completed.
A reduced number of visits can be offered per year, but this is not recommended. Written reports are left on each visit detailing premises conditions, what was found, what was done and a record of all baits and treatments used.
Reports are kept in a folder which is left on site. This can be shown to any visiting environmental health officer.
Clear Round Pest Services are always happy to talk to EHO’s on their client’s behalf if there are any queries regarding pests at their property.
Annual Invoicing for contracts is preferred but should a client require it then the invoicing can be in two equal halves, six months apart or quarterly.
Clear Round Pest Services are happy to carry out a free survey and advice at any premise and quote accordingly, should you be thinking of taking out a pest control contract or changing your current supplier.
