Maintenance Services (are “preventive” type services initiated ONLY AFTER a clean-out service is performed to reduce the infestation). These services are considerably less expensive than “Clean-out” services because they are designed as an efficient & cost effective means of keeping pests under control, keeping time & materials costs lower, therefore allowing DSPM to perform these services at a lower cost. Maintenance service plans & pricing become void after 90 days pass without having a service performed OR if any outstanding balance is due on the account. At this point, a clean-out service would need to be performed again prior to resuming any maintenance service plan.
*Basic Maintenance Service - Base Rate: $45 (single family dwelling), $15 more for each additional unit. Rate will be $20-$30 more per service for heavier infestations, initially, until infestation is under control. Maintenance service following a German cockroach clean-out service should be monthly until infestation is under control (usually 2-3 months for light infestation or up to 6 months for heavy infestations). Minimum frequency of “Every-Other-Month” is required to maintain maintenance-rate pricing & is often sufficient after infestation is controlled.
S-S-F (Spring-Summer-Fall) Maintenance Plan: Base rate is $78 per service (3 scheduled visits/yr.) & covers most homes up to 2,000 sq. ft.. This plan is the most economical plan offered & is designed as an “Exterior Only Application”. Interior can be treated at the rate of $5/room. After $30 (6 rooms), it would include a full interior/exterior treatment. ALL 3 visits must be performed within a calendar year in order to keep maintenance plan active.
Full Protection Maintenance Plan: Base rate is $110 per service (4 scheduled visits/yr.) & covers most homes up to 2,000 sq. ft.. This is the most comprehensive plan. (Covered) target pests include all species of Ants, Centipedes, Earwigs, Ground Beetles, Silverfish, Spiders, Mice & Bees/Wasps. Contingencies: Services must be current w/no outstanding balance due for warranty to be valid. If a service is “skipped”, warranty will be void until any services due are performed AND any outstanding balance due is paid in full. A minimum of 3 services/year must be performed in order to keep maintenance plan active.
