Pest Control is an Essential Service and we will continue to help our community through COVID-19

Public Safety Canada and the Government of Ontario have deemed pest control an essential service, as we protect the health and safety of Canadians.

Beacon Pest Control’s top priority is the health of our employees and customers, and the protection of our customers’ property. Based on the advice of Health Canada and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, we have taken the following steps to support our priority:
 

Personal Protective Clothing and Sanitation

  • Nitrile Gloves – Our service representatives wear a new pair of nitrile gloves for each service. These are the same gloves that paramedics, nurses, and doctors wear
  • Respiratory Masks – While in your home or business our service representatives wear a P100 Respiratory Mask, which is superior to an N95 mask:

P100 = 99.97% filter efficiency level

N95 = 95% filter efficiency level

  • We have increased the frequency at which our vehicles and equipment are being disinfected
  • All vehicles are equipped with hand sanitizer and Lysol wipes

 

Physical Distancing

 
Exterior Services are Zero Contact

  • You will receive a courtesy phone call when we are en route to your home
  • You do not need to be home during an exterior service
  • If you are home during your exterior service appointment, please remain inside your home for the duration of the service
  • A receipt will be left in your mailbox, or you can use our electronic billing and payment options

 
Interior Services are Reduced Contact

  • You will receive a courtesy phone call when we are en route to your home
  • Full PPE, including a P100 respirator mask and nitrile gloves, will be donned prior to entering your home
  • We encourage clients and roaming pets to leave the home while we work, however, if you prefer to remain in the home, a minimum of 6 feet of physical distance will always be maintained. Some comfortable places to stay during your service appointment are on the front porch, the back deck, the garage, or going for a short walk
  • A receipt will be left in your mailbox, or you can use our electronic billing and payment options
