Presto-X Pest Control, a member of the Rentokil family of the companies serving customers throughout the central United States, got into the spirit of the holidays this week by offering to help a family in need in Aurora, Colorado with their bed bug infestation. The family’s story was featured on the Denver area FOX31 local T.V. news broadcast.
After 10 months of bed bugs plaguing the Alloway family, the family borrowed $2,000 to pay a local pest control company to get rid of the infestation. However, the treatment did not work and the company did not honor their guarantee to fix the issue.
“We don’t have that kind of money,” Gene Alloway said. “With Christmas and the holidays, it’s just impossible.”
The Presto-X Denver office heard about the story and offered to help the family. The following day after the segment was broadcast; Presto-X carried out a full inspection of the property and is now working with the family to get rid of the infestation. Presto-X is collaborating with fellow Rentokil company, Steritech, to help the family.
“I think the world has kind of lost the Christmas spirit and what it’s all about and this brings that back,” Eva Alloway said.
