"We don't say, 'No'—we say, 'Let's go!'"
That's the mantra of Todd Burton and Darin Johnson, who together run Supportive Services of Oregon Inc., a company that helps people either move into new homes or make their current ones look like new. Their services include moving, general maintenance, and house cleaning—no matter how messy a house may be.
Sound Pest Management’s experts liberate homes from pest infestations while protecting them from future invasions in the process. A member of the team will start by patrolling residences, examining every nook and cranny looking for evidence of an infestation, such as signs of nesting and damage. Once problem areas have been identified, the crew gets to work by seeking and destroying entrenched squatters such as termites, ants, bedbugs, and cockroaches. Extermination and preventative sprays usually cost about $180, though more difficult pests such as carpenter ants can cost up to $300; removing rodents, which requires two visits, costs about $200. Patrons can also defend homes with a basic perimeter spray ($180), which uses potent repellants and tiny electrified Keep Out signs to create a bug-zapping border around homes.
