Joseph DiMaggio had two dehumidifiers and two pumps running in his basement they worked perfect. Terminix told him he would save more money on electric if he used one large $1700 unit.
He purchased it. The sales man told him he would have to leave open both sides of his basement. one side is dirt. The other is concrete.
Now his house is freezing because of the door to the dirt basement must be kept open because there is only one unit. The cost to run the terminix unit is more expensive then the other two units. His gas pilot light keeps blowing out because the dirt basement door is open. It did not happen when he had two separate units.
He is on oxygen and the salesman told him that he had a wood decaying fungus that is effecting his health. It is against the law in pa for pestiside company to make health claims to intimidate the customer to buy their products. He was a customer of terminix for 25 years with a termite renewal contract. There are two owners of the home.
the termite renewal is in both names. One owner did not sign the contract. The owner that did not sign the contract wants the unit out of his property as he did not give them permission to install it. Simply put the swindled an elderly person of his savings.
Is there a pro bono lawyer out there to help this vet. The salesman before leaving told him he would get him next year to put insulation in this attic. He made that statement without looking at the attic. Do not trust Terminix.sales men they are only looing for a commission.
The salesman was give a check for $469 as a deposit on the contract. Somehow he never deposited. Who would order a unit install it and not have a deposit. What a scam.
Something is rotten in Denmark. This is the terminix in Scranton Pa
