Lynda T
Huntington, West Virginia
After a recent inspection, the technician informed me that there was evidence of a fungus growing in my crawl space. He recommended that I have the crawl space encapsulated and a dehumidifier installed. This was a considerable expense so I told him I had to think about it. After doing some research into this process, I called back to agree to the work which was completed within a few days the following week. Everyone was professional and courteous.

Culpeper, Virginia
Have been a satisfied customer for nearly ten years -- no bugs! Technicians are always prompt, very thorough during the process and always remind about temporary, potential danger to pets.
