It is very difficult to provide a specific dollar amount as there are many variables which determine the actual cost. A professional bug sweeping service will often charge based on the size of the target area along with other mitigating factors. They will also likely have a minimum charge and will not come out just to sweep one room. In may cases, a professional bug sweeper will charge anywhere from $1 – $2 per square foot of the total residence. The higher rate is often charged by bug sweep companies who have more extensive and sophisticated electronic detection equipment as well as the extensive background of the assigned TSCM technician.
While you may be tempted to hire a less expensive sweeper simply because of the price, you may be cheating yourself if the technician is using inferior and antiquated equipment, or he simply doesn’t have the experience and training. Be sure to read our WARNING page before you hire any bug sweep company to educate yourself.
When calculating the square footage, you also need to include the basement and garage. If applicable, you’ll also need to add the square footage for a finished attic. A professional bug sweep requires that the entire residence be inspected as the transmitting device, recorder, or wiretap can be hidden ANYWHERE within the residence. Such devices are often found hidden in the basement, garage and attic concealed behind insulation, boxes, or above ceiling tiles.
In most cases, an average size house is usually around $3,500 and more for larger homes. The best way to get an exact price is to get a free instant price quote by calling our technicians at 888-808-4802.
