Company Review

Barrier Pest Control is a local family-owned business founded in 2001. Situated at 20746 SW Olds Pl, Sherwood, OR 97140, the company serves cities in the Portland metro area, as well as Vancouver, Washington. Barrier Pest Control promises to eliminate wasps, spiders, mice, and rats as well as other common household pests.

The company advertises free estimates, advice, and inspections. After that, it charges a $65 fee for the first service and a yearly contract at $95, billed quarterly. Barrier Pest Control only provides services under yearly contracts, and if you need to break the contract for any reason, the company charges a $100 cancellation fee. The contract includes free reservice visits as needed to keep the pests away. Barrier Pest Control claims that they are able to treat homes from pests with family, pet, and environmentally safe products. This sets them apart from other companies that tend to use chemicals that are toxic to both pets and humans.

Satisfied customers praise the technicians who go above and beyond to serve them. The company responds quickly to requests and often makes same-day appointments, although several customers complained about their technicians arriving late. Many express that the technicians listen and explain the procedures, and one customer referenced a time when her technician even took the time to answer questions from her children. Other customers expressed gratitude for the company’s integrity. One individual described a time that a technician sprayed around her house while she wasn’t at home. He later called to inform her that he saw an envelope of cash under her doormat and wanted to make sure she picked it up. With a Google rating of 4.6, it’s clear that people are generally satisfied with the company’s service.

Customers also have a lot to say about Barrier Pest Control’s business practices. Most praise the technicians who come to their homes, but many express frustrations about how the company tries to sell you on its products. Several people wrote reviews about sales associates knocking on their doors and pushing them to sign contracts, claiming they were in the area. These residents felt uncomfortable in the aggressive way the sales associates spoke to them. A few customers felt as though they were roped into contracts that weren’t thoroughly explained, and others had trouble getting out of contracts they no longer wanted. With an A+ from the BBB, Barrier Pest Control seems to amend any problems that customers bring to its attention.

Overall, Barrier Pest Control is a family-owned business with caring and thorough technicians who provide family, pet, and environmentally friendly products, but may have some aggressive sales practices.
