It can be hard to shop around and choose a pest control provider. How do you know which companies are reputable and which companies aren’t? These days you need to shop smart to ensure you get quality service for your household or business. At Vermont Pest Control, we know this and that’s why we want to educate you on an important credential that a quality pest control service should have: QualityPro certification.
What is QualityPro?
You may have seen the blue and white QualityPro logo on a pest control company’s website if you’ve searched for pest control online. Think of it as the seal of approval from the NPMA, or the National Pest Management Association. It’s given to companies that meet a certain standard of excellence and complete rigorous ongoing testing and training. Both management and employees receive training and ongoing education annually as part of renewing their certification.
What Does it Mean to be QualityPro Certified?
Let’s be honest, not every pest control company is fit to be a QualityPro company. The NPMA is the non-profit leadership group that represents the pest control industry, and they demand a lot from QualityPro-certified businesses. As a result, to be QualityPro accredited, you have to do more than just pass a test. You also have to certify that your company:
- Conducts background checks on job applicants
- Meets minimum insurance coverage requirements
- Has an on-the-job safety policy
- Provides Integrated Pest Management (IPM) information to consumers
- Tests and trains employees to the highest industry standards
- Agrees to periodic audits to ensure compliance with QualityPro standards
Benefits of QualityPro
QualityPro is the most recognized professional pest management certification. It lets you as a consumer know that a pest control company is committed to excellence. You’ve probably encountered similar certifications in other industries. The National Insititute for Automotive Service Excellence offers the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification for auto repair shops, for example. Maybe someone once advised you to buy a kitchen appliance that’s EnergyStar certified.
It makes sense to choose a provider with a seal of approval for something as important as your home’s pest control. You don’t need to know everything there is about the exterminating industry. QualityPro certification tells you that you can be confident about your choice of pest control company.
