Pests are a nuisance in any home, but in somewhere as busy and cramped as London they can be even more hazardous to your health than usual; smaller terraced housing and apartment blocks have a lot of people living in close proximity of one another, and this lack of room allows such pests to spread much faster than in spacious, detached housing. Fortunately, however, most London councils offer their own pest control services for residential (and sometimes commercial) properties to prevent any kind of epidemic.
Prices for Pest Control in London
The following table outlines prices for pest control in London, using figures from four local councils:
There are often concessions for those who receive benefits, for example if you are an owner occupier and in receipt of council tax benefit, Ealing council take 50% off the rates listed in the table above.
Remember, these prices are just estimates based on each council’s annual or quarterly average figures; the final cost of your pest control services will depend on how extensive the problem is and exactly how long it will take for these professionals to remove said pest and take care of any preventative measures that need to be put in place. For more accurate cost outlines, you should visit your own council’s website.
If you’re a private homeowner or have your own mortgage, you might not always be eligible for these council services; in which case you will have to look at hiring a private professional to deal with your home’s pest problem. Prices in the pest control market will always vary depending on a number of different factors, including the type of pest infestation, how extensively the pests have spread and even whereabouts you live in London. Providing estimates is difficult, as most contractors will want to inspect the problem before offering you a quote – so to get the best deal possible make sure you ask for a number of free inspections before settling on a preferred employee.
