There are many different services that Charleston property management companies provide to renters. Some companies will provide different or more services than others, but all companies are bound to provide what is outlined in the lease renters sign. One of the most popular services that renters usually can count on to be included in their lease is pest spraying.
How Often Do Rental Homes Need to be Sprayed for Pests?
Most Charleston property management companies will provide quarterly pest control treatment in rental homes. If a home has a history of pest infestation issues or the area is prone to pests, bimonthly or monthly spraying may be necessary. When there are current infestations monthly treatments can be necessary for anywhere from three to six months.
What Type of Pests Does Chemical Treatment Protect Against?
Chemical sprays only protect homes from certain types of pests. Insects and spiders are the most common pests that these treatments can prevent. Moths, pillbugs, silverfish, ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs also respond to chemical treatments. Infestations of rodents such as mice are not controlled by these types of sprays.
Do New Homes Need Pest Control?
Every home that is managed by Charleston property management companies needs pest control and this service frequency should be outlined in leases. Pest control not only helps to retain residents but also protects the homes from infestation damage.
Because areas often have to be cleared to make way for new home construction, environments are destroyed making it more likely for insects and other pests to try to find shelter inside the newly built rental homes. Leftover sawdust and wood scraps are also very attractive to insects.
If you have recently completed construction on a rental home, make sure to have pest control spray the home after it is completed, and Charleston property management companies can help schedule future visits during the rental processes.
