Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to continue services for my business or home?
Pied Piper Service continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and any associated warnings or CDC guidance that becomes available. To ensure the safety of our employees as well as the businesses and homeowners we serve, we will continue to follow all recommended guidelines and internal policies and procedures that we have in place to address any issues that may arise in the upcoming weeks.
How can I be sure you won’t bring the virus to my business or home?
The safety and health of our employees, homeowners and businesses we serve is our number one priority. All employees of Pied Piper Services have been given strict hygiene practices and cleaning procedures for both vehicles and personal equipment used during a job designed to limit the chances of transmission that may occur between job sites. All employees are advised to wear protective equipment to limit transmission and any employees that are sick or may be showing symptoms are instructed to stay home.
How can you provide services if everyone is “social distancing”?
At the current time, pest control services have been deemed essential in both Oklahoma and Texas. Many pests can spread illness and disease when left unchecked in a business or home. While we continue to provide pest control services, our employees have been instructed to follow social distancing guidelines and remain a minimum of 6 feet away from others while performing services.
My business isn’t open right now. Do I still need service?
Although many businesses are facing mandatory shutdowns at the current time, they are still susceptible to pest infestations. This is even more important for businesses that are closed currently because pests like cockroaches and rodents will be able to spread and forage for food without being disturbed or scared. What may have seemed like a minor pest problem could be a full infestation upon reopening the business, leading you to stay closed for even longer to deal with it.
If I’m quarantined at home. Do I still need service?
Because many people are “social distancing” in Oklahoma and Texas, they may be seeing the presence of more pests than normal. During this time of year, many pests will begin to emerge with the warming temperatures. Continuing or starting pest control services for your home during this time can help control or eliminate these pests before they become a larger problem.
What if I’m not comfortable having a technician in my business or home?
In light of the fear that COVID-19 has caused, Pied Piper Services knows that not everyone will want interior pest control services at the current time. To accommodate this and still serve our customers as effectively as possible, our technicians will focus on exterior treatments while identifying any entry points that pests may have and eliminating nesting sites that have already been established around the perimeter of the facility.
