American Rat Control has a unique way of Rat Proofing your home or business; our fully licensed, trained and experienced inspector will arrive at your home, ready to conduct a full inspection. The inspector is licensed by the California Structural Pest Control Board (SPCB) as a Field Representative. Before he is permitted to conduct inspections he is required by American Rat Control to have successfully proofed over 500 structures and have passed a rigorous California State exam.
The inspector will first identify the rodent that has invaded your property. This is very important before beginning any rodent control program. Identifying the species of rodent will aid in the inspection process; because rodents are creatures of habit it will make the inspector’s job that much easier to locate all access points on the structure. As the inspector surveys the exterior of the structure, he will draft a diagram of the building which identifies access points and/or areas in need correction.
The inspector will then discuss the project with you, going over what needs to be repaired and how we will make the repairs. You will be provided with a no obligation written estimate of the project. You may take your time to think about the project or schedule the work with the inspector at that time. If you choose to go ahead with the project, the inspector will schedule a date and time for the crew to come and perform all repairs. At the same time, the inspector will place rat traps to immediately begin trapping rodents.
The crew will arrive with the inspector’s diagram, and equipped with all necessary materials to professionally seal all access points. The crew service technicians are employees of American Rat Control and are licensed by the (SPCB). Each crew service technician must pass a state exam as an applicator and be trained by an experienced crew service technician before being sent out to perform rodent proofings.
Our crew will concentrate on aesthetics and durability of their work. American Rat Control will guarantee our work for a period of 1 or 3 years. (More information on our guarantee can be found at the guarantee page)
The crew will service the traps placed by the inspector and schedule a time for the service technician to return and continue to service the traps until we are sure all rodents have been removed from the structure.
