They took extra care and used non harmful products around our pets and salt water aquariums with VERY expensive coral in them which I appreciated. They also wore little plastic covers on their shoes when they came inside to help keep our carpet clean. They were extremely nice and on top of all of their great customer service they got rid of our carpenter ant problem. I will use them again and highly recommend them to anyone who has small children and pets. They really take these things into account when they spray.
