Pest Control

Pest Control is very much allied with the use of professional pesticides. Whenever we need medication we automatically go to our doctor or pharmacist and for the environment it is exactly the same. It is the Pest Control specialist that prevents and corrects the variations and abnormalities in our environment and finding the best professional is important for your image and that of your clients.

At Goldservice, in addition to fulfilling all legal requirements, we have our own control system that guarantees an even higher level of confidence.

We normally use the least toxic pesticides possible in the smallest possible dosage. We search for the ideal product for each case and we have the capacity and appropriate systems for controlling pests in home or establishments with people sensitive to chemicals, ….. because your health comes first.
