To our valued clients,

As we are nearing a “shelter in place” requirement, for at least Harris County, I wanted to reach out again and make you aware of how this affects our ability to provide you with a pest free home or business. 

The pest control industry has been deemed an essential service by the Department of Homeland Security. With this designation, we will still be able to continue providing you a great service that is needed now, as much as ever. As a member of the pest control industry, it is our responsibility to provide for the protection of public health, food and property, not just in Texas, but across the country. Pests and unchecked wildlife populations can vector disease and trigger/increase allergic reactions. Our services can help mitigate those concerns and any effort we can make to allow our medical professionals to focus on Covid-19, we will continue to do.

Our technicians have the proper hand cleaners, gloves and respirators/masks to allow for an effective service, while maintaining a high standard of care for the possible transmission of Covid-19. We will continue to maintain a safe distance when interacting with our clients. I would also like to stress our ability to perform a great deal of our treatments via exterior only based services. Certainly some insect related issues will require interior treatments, if necessary, we will rely on the safety measures described above.

If anyone in your home or business has been diagnosed with Covid-19, or is under specific quarantine due to a concern of exposure, we ask that you make us aware so that we can treat the exterior of the home while not putting our service people at risk. 

Stay safe and thank you for being a part of the Chem-Tech family.
