Safe Pest Control

Important Information Concerning Your Pest Management Program


The Client acknowledges and agrees to these terms by scheduling service via telephone communication, signing this document, or providing a confirmation of acceptance via electronic mail.

Treatment effectiveness:

Safe Pest Control will deliver the Service in a competent and professional manner taking into account these terms. The ongoing effectiveness of the pest control provided depends on the Customer implementing Safe Pest Control’s recommended hygiene, housekeeping, stacking and property maintenance procedures. The Customer acknowledges that pest treatment may also be rendered ineffective by disturbing treated areas, building alterations, renovations and introducing untreated or infested materials to the property that encourage pest activity. 

Pest Inspection and Treatment:

All pest inspections undertaken as part of the Service will be based upon a visual inspection only limited to those areas and sections of the premises fully accessible and visible to the technician at the time and on the day of the inspection. Furniture, equipment, fittings and stock may conceal evidence of some pests that can only be revealed when these items are removed. The treatment will cover only those pests and areas described in this agreement. All other pests are excluded unless agreed by Safe Pest Control in writing.

Advice, Recommendations / AfterCare:

Safe Pest Control’s technician will provide a service report after the Service and provide advice and recommendations to the Customer to control and minimize pests and their habitat. These may cover hygiene, housekeeping, stacking, storage and maintenance.
