- When we support a local company we are supporting our local economy. This makes a big difference in the our city and community on the long run.
Corporations tend to have a 1-800 number and/or a number of an office
out-of-state, which makes it really difficult, if not impossible, to
reach your technician in an emergency.
aware of national companies that have commercials on TV, radio,
internet and everywhere you look. Many times we think that their name is
everywhere because they are good, but the truth is that these
commercials are PAID and EXTREMELY expensive. In fact, who pays for all
that advertisement is the unaware client, because
the services provided by these companies usually cost 4-10 times more
than a local company (yes, for the SAME EXACT SERVICE!).
Companies tend to send different technicians to your house each
service. This makes it impossible to trust and know who is coming to
your house next. Once you make an appointment, you will know the
technician by name and be able to reach him easily through the office or
his business cell phone.
Control companies tend to pay their employees very little and lay them
off in the winter months. This naturally causes them to stay very little
time in the same company. For the client this means new and
inexperienced technician every year servicing your home.
new companies are being created everyday in Reno/Sparks area. However,
be aware of inexperienced technicians. Once you choose Statewide Termite
& Pest Control, Inc. you will notice the big difference. Greg
Jepsen is the owner for almost 20 years and the inspector and
technician. He has college degree in business administration and is the
trainer of all his technicians. All technicians hired by Statewide have been trained directly by Greg and have more than 9 years of experience.
- Companies from outside of Nevada may not be aware of pests in this area and effective methods of treatment. They may also become VERY dangerous inspectors, passing wrong information that may cause you a law suit. One BIG example of this is that people learn in other states that Nevada doesn't have termites. We have heard this VERY mistaken information several times, specially during Real Estate Inspections. Not only by inexperienced technicians but also by real estate agents from other states. The fact is that anyone may call the Local Department of Agriculture to confirm the information that the incidence of termites in this area is EXTREMELY HIGH, and a mistake in this situation can and will cost.
