You know? Im from the old school. I come from a time when your word and a handshake meant something. Well, unfortunately, I have to “Lawyer Up” and tell it like it is! I have tried to be very fair in this agreement, without all the legal loopholes, and mumbo jumbo. Just between 2 friends. Working together to create a common goal. This is not a contract, but an agreement between 2 people. Our word and a handshake. I promise you that New Era Pest Control will be ontime, professional, courtious, and produce great results. Please remember that you have an obligation as well, as we work together to correct the deficiencies in or around your home. Deficiencies that contribute to your current pest problem. We would be glad to point those out for you. We love working with our customers. If we both do our parts, there is nothing we can’t accomplish. Help Us Help You!
CANCEL AGREEMENT: Either party may cancel this agreement within 72 hours of the contract date. After the initial 72 hours, a 30 day written, or email notice must be submitted. No Text Cancelations. No Exceptions! If written notice is not submitted in adequate time, one additional service month, will be charged. All outstanding balances must be paid in full upon cancellation.
SERVICE: New Era Pest Control Inc. will provide “Pest Control” related services for its customers, with the intention of eliminating infestation levels, and maintaining acceptable levels in the future, with regular service intervals, Utilizing more pet/human/earth friendly practices. To say that we will eliminate future pest occurrences, would clearly be misleading and untrue. A more honest approach would state “Pest Control”. Protecting and controlling your environment from the elements (Pests). New Era Pest Control Inc. does not claim “total elimination” of pest levels, as this is clearly an “Unrealistic Expectation”. It’s simple, If a problem should arise, report the incident and New Era Pest Control Inc. will, within a reasonable time (24 hours) schedule a “callback” to retreat the area of the pest sighting. “Callback” retreats, are an area by area treatment only, and do not require the entire structure to be retreated, unless technician deems it necessary. This agreement insures that New Era Pest Control Inc. will provide “Pest Control” services, on-time and in a professional manner. In the same respect, Customer agrees to make property readily available to New Era Pest Control Inc. for the purpose of providing “Pest Control Services” on the agreed frequencies. New Era Pest Control Inc. will make every effort to contact the customer for scheduling purposes. Currently, phone calls, emails, text messages, and reminder notifications are being used to notify our customers, and we will continue to do so in an effort to remind the customer that services are due. However, the Customer is ultimately responsible for contacting New Era Pest Control Inc. to schedule its regular maintenance service. There will be a $25.00 no show charge, if the service was agreed upon and confirmed by both parties, and the property is unavailable to our techs, or if service is canceled within 24 hours of the scheduled service.
CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES: Customer understands that results of service are relative to and dependent upon the cooperation of the customer as to housekeeping, sanitation, maintenance, and accessibility of areas to be serviced. Customer agrees to cooperate as reasonably necessary to facilitate treatment and control. Customer agrees to assist in correcting any existing or potential condition, set forth in our inspection report, in order to prevent pest infestations. Failure to take necessary steps in correcting such conditions will relieve New Era Pest Control Inc. of its obligations under this Agreement. Customer must actively seek to schedule its regular maintenance service. New Era Pest Control Inc. will make every attempt to contact the customer regarding the scheduling of each service, however New Era Pest Control Inc. is not responsible for forcing the customer to accept service. If we are unable to contact the customer, it is the ultimate responsibility of the customer to call, email, text, chat with a representative so that we may schedule each service. Further, additional treatments in areas of such conditions that are not corrected as required shall be paid for by the customer as an extra service charge. Please do your part, and enjoy a pest free home again!
INTERIOR SERVICE: Our Interior Services are performed to correct and remove infestation levels in the home, initially. Depending on the type of pest problem experienced, service techniques may vary. Our Pest Control Services, using current technologies, allow us to focus on the individual pest problem, and does not require that the entire home be serviced, especially during maintenance services. Gone are the days of the “One size fits all spray everywhere service”. Some customers may remember the days when spraying products on the baseboards throughout the entire house was the norm. This is no longer required, as advances in pest control allow us to pinpont and treat these pests, without going into each room. Treating the areas where water and food are stored or used is a much better practice, as insets will not typically be in areas without water and food.
Insects require water and food for their survival. These pests will find access into the home for the food and water provided to them on the interior of the home, via structual deficiencies like cracks & crevices, broken screens, trees, and more. Once inside, these pests will locate the food and water sources and stay close to those sources. Treating the entire inside of the house in it’s entirity, is simply not needed.
When we are in the home performing service, the following areas are most commonly focused on.
- Kitchen & Bathrooms
- Air Handler Closet/Room
- Door Thresholds
EXTERIOR SERVICE: Exterior service, meaning structure only! As part of the IPM technologies in which we adhere, treating the exterior the home is very important. Doors, windows, pipes leading into the structure, air conditioning lines, door sweeps, etc. are all areas of concern and again, are all areas that must be repaired, sealed, or plugged by the property inhabitant. Buyer agrees to implement recommendations in his/her partnership with New Era Pest Control Inc. This treatment on the exterior is intended to prevent general household pests from entering the structure. It is not intended to treat lawn and ornamental pests, or fire ants. It is possible that bushes or trees along/touching the structure may carry insects that will enter the structure for food and water for the colony. Treating these bushes, trees, plants individually may ultimately help the indoors problem. Also Fire ants from the yard coming into the house for dog food, cat food, or water should be treated by spraying of the yard. Treating bushes or the yard are not services New Era Pest Control can perform. Occasionally New Era Pest Control Inc. may recommend control measures on the exterior that are beyond the normal scope of work, ie. Yard spray, or ornamental, tree related services. In those circumstances, contracting a specialist in this field of work is recommended.
MOSQUITO REDUCTION: Mosquito Barrier Service does not eliminate mosquitoes, only reduces populations of mosquitoes and does not treat or prevent mosquito-borne disease. Nor does it prevent mosquito bites. These services work well to reduce the numbers of mosquitoes and their offspring. As usual, ensuring the area is non conducive to mosquito breeding, we can reduce the numbers of mosquitoes and the hatching eggs. These services are a complementary means to the ultimate mosquito control.
CANCELING A CONFIRMED MAINTENANCE SERVICE: Life Happens! We get that, and occasionally, your going to miss an appointment because something came up. You may cancel your service outside a 24 hour period without penalty. If you should cancel your appointment, within a 24 hour period of a confirmed service, there will be a $25.00 charge. In addition, if the property is not made readily available for service after confirming the appointment, a charge of $25.00 will be charged. Why would we charge this fee? Setting schedules for customers is a great challenge. Once your appointment is scheduled, agreed upon, and confirmed by you, canceling your service within 24 hours, does not provide us with enough time to schedule another customer, ultimately losing the revenue that would have been generated. Paying technicians for that hour while no work is being generated, cost the company time and money. Please be considerate and call us well in advance if you need to cancel your appointment. Thank you for your understanding.
FUTURE DAMAGE: New Era Pest Control is not responsible for, and does not guarantee against present or future damage to structure or contents, or provide for the repair or replacement thereof.
GUARANTEE: CONTROL OF COVERED PESTS: Depending on the service type selected, New Era Pest Control guarantees to control included pests, in and around your home through delivery of regular pest control service. Some pests require more than one treatment, while others may only require one service for control. Ask your salesperson for more details. Our guarantee to you, is if you are seeing infestation levels while under the guarantee period, we will return at no cost to you, and make the correction. The sighting of one insect in the structure does not mean your home is infested.
PAYMENT: Customer assumes full financial responsibility for services rendered. New Era Pest Control Inc. does not accept net terms on residential properties. Therefore, payment is due in full at the completion of each service. In those cases where net terms are extended, a late fee of $25.00 will be applied to all unpaid invoices that are 30 days or more past the service date. At its own discretion, New Era Pest Control Inc. may discontinue service and begin collection proceedings without submitting (30) day cancellation notification if outstanding balances are not paid within 60 days. Upon failure to make such payments, the customer agrees to pay all costs associated with collection proceedings, including a reasonable attorney’s fee. Customer agrees to pay interest on all amounts 30 days past due at the rate of one and one-half percent (1 1/2%) per month (18% per annum)
