We usually schedule only one day ahead because of the weather. We call our customers in late March or early April to see if they want to be treated again that summer.

Usually, we can quote a price over the phone if you know the square footage and the style of your house. On some very large homes or apartment complexes, we prefer to look at the property to give a fair quote.

You can pay at the time of service or send us payment after our service is done. We accept cash, check, or Visa/MasterCard.
