Chem-Wise Ecological Pest Management is a locally owned and operated pest control company in Chicago, Illinois. It is fully licensed and insured in Illinois, QualityPro certified, and A+ rated by BBB, DexKnows, and Angie’s List. It also won the 2019 Angie’s List Super Service Award.
It has over 25 years of experience providing pest control services, with locations in Rolling Meadows, Aurora, Berwyn, and Newport. It has positioned itself as the go-to pest control company in Chicagoland and employs certified full-time employees.
They provide residential and commercial clients a wide range of exterminations, pest proofing, and removal services. They treat various pests, including ants, mosquitoes, termites, wasps, fleas, bed bugs, roaches, rodents, and other flying or crawling insects.
They also provide lawn care services such as weed control, grub control, and disease control. They use organic fertilizers that contain micro-nutrients to stimulate and enhance the soil for a healthy and beautiful lawn.
Chemical-Wise operates on a one-hour appointment window, and live and local representatives answer all calls. They provide free phone quotes, free lawn analysis, and accepts all forms of payment. They have a triannual payment plan that provides clients with year-round service starting at $145 and a single service plan for first-time customers starting at $95.
What impressed us, though, is their treatment guarantees. For customers on the triannual plan, Chemical-Wise offers a year-round guarantee that if your pest problem persists, they will come in between the scheduled treatments for as long as needed, at no extra cost. Single service clients get a 90-day guarantee from the initial treatment date for recurring pests, at no extra cost.
Chemical-Wise prides itself on being an eco-friendly pest control company. They use EPA approved materials in all their treatments, only selecting the least toxic that are still effective. The technicians are well-trained in the proper handling of the materials and safest and most effective treatment methods.
The company also has a certified entomologist and an environmental biologist on staff that oversees all treatment processes. To protect your family, they apply small amounts of the chemicals in cracks out of children and pets’ reach.
Most of their customers are impressed with how professional and punctual the technicians are and how they managed to solve their pest problems. However, some complained about missed appointments and rescheduling issues.
Clients, especially those in need of lawn services, complained of canceled appointments and having to reschedule up to three times before a technician could come. They all reported, though, that when they did finally come, they performed the job well.
Some clients also complained of persistent pest problems despite Chemical-Wise technicians carrying out treatment. But since the company offers treatment guarantees, these clients didn’t incur extra costs for subsequent treatments.
Overall, Chemical-Wise is a great pest control company with a few hiccups in scheduling. Their pest control services are eco-friendly, and they take the safety of your family and pets seriously. Their technicians are well-trained and friendly, and their pricing is reasonable, with flexible payment plans and treatment guarantees. But they need to work on streamlining scheduling to avoid missing appointments.
