Pests Covered

As both a residential and commercial pest elimination service, Rentokil addresses all pest issues including seasonal pests, crawling insects, flying insects, rodents, wildlife, and other problems. Here’s a more inclusive list:

  • Flies
  • Wasps
  • Moths
  • Ants
  • Woodworms
  • Bed bugs
  • Cockroaches
  • Fleas
  • Spiders
  • Silverfish
  • Mosquitoes
  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Birds
  • Stored produce insects
  • Textile pests
  • Other wildlife 

Rentokil works with both private homes and professional businesses, an impressive claim that most other pest control services can’t make. Some of the professional sectors covered by Rentokil include:

  • Food and beverage processing
  • Facilities management
  • Hotels and hospitality
  • Pharmaceuticals

The fact that Rentokil works on a commercial level bodes well for homeowners because it means you can get professional, industrial-grade equipment, products, and procedures at wholesale pricing.

Pricing

As with other pest control services, Rentokil doesn't have a published list of prices for its services. This is because so many factors go into the services. So, every customer receives custom pricing as per their situation.

What we really liked about Rentokil's pricing policy, though is its upfront approach. Rather than hiding behind ambiguous terms and technical jargon, Rentokil has an entire section on the website explaining the pricing structure and what goes into the custom price you receive (things like size of property, type of treatment, number of treatments, size of infestation, etc.).

Rentokil has different pricing structures for commercial and residential customers too. There are also recurring plans for continuous treatment.

Guarantee

Rentokil doesn’t list a specific time frame for its satisfaction guarantee, so you don't have a 30-day or 60-day guarantee, for example. Instead, Rentokil says that it will send a technician back to your house or commercial property until the pest problem is solved completely. While the ambiguity of not having a concrete guarantee policy is a little unnerving, the fact that Rentokil offers to give you a dedicated technician who will ensure the problem is resolved makes up for this lack of technical details.

Customer Service

Rentokil offers both phone and email customer support. From the UK, you can reach a representative at 0808 256 9325 and at (855) 243-5148 from the US. Alternatively, you can fill out the online contact form and get an email response.

It’s worth noting that Rentokil has received continuous high ratings on TrustPilot from both residential and commercial customers for its superior services. What’s more, all technicians are highly-trained and certified by the BPCA.

Green Pest Control

Not only is Rentokil committed to clean pest control, but this company is actually one of the driving forces behind tech development in the field. Rentokil brings nearly 100 years of research and development to the table, introducing innovations like non-toxic pest control products and IoT enabled pest control systems.

Rentokil also uses a totally chemical-free pest control method of pest elimination called heat treatment. This solution works against bed bugs, cockroaches, and wood boring insects in a safe and environmentally-friendly way.

Needs repeat service, didn't work first time. Could be improved to work first time so repeat visits are unnecessary.

I am very new to using this brand. I do not know what to think about it yet. I think that the quality of the service is good for the amount of money it costs.
