It is hard to believe that it has been 30 years since we started Emergency Pest Control, Inc. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone over the years that has used one or more of our services. For some it was just a one time real estate inspection and for others we have been at your house regularly for many years. We would like you thank you for your confidence in us and our services and for the opportunity to spend time with you. I wish everyone has a healthy, prosporous 2017.
Important Newsletter from October 2007
We have just returned from Richmond, taking a recertification class for performing Wood Destroying Insect inspections which are generally needed for the sale of a home. In Virginia there is a voluntary class that can be taken which is specifically designed to the inspection that is generally needed for the sale of a home. There is no state law requiring these inspections, it is generally required by a Mortgage Company and is generally listed in a sales contract as required by the seller. Our three inspectors; Katie Davidson, Zack Taylor and Rusty Taylor are certified by the Virginia Pest Management Association (VPMA) to perform these inspections. After the initial class is taken and passed we must take a recertification class every two years to maintain our current status. Although these classes take time and cost money they are very educational and very worth the time and money in training us what we are to look for and how we are to report such findings. We use the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) form, NPMA-33, to report the findings of the inspection.
If you are Real Estate Agent you should make sure you check to see that the inspectors you are using are certified by the VPMA to perform these inspections. If you are selling your home or buying a home you be sure that a certified inspector is performing the inspection on the home you are selling or buying as they have the extra training needed to perform such inspections.
To check to see if an inspector you are using is certified by the VPMA simply go to the website: www.vpmaonline.com to see a list of inspectors which are currently certified. Our inspectors are certified as follows: Rusty Taylor (072502000353) Katherine Davidson (03060000712) and Zachary Taylor (03060000722)
