Northwest Exterminating started in 1990 as a Pre-Treat Company for new construction. It was started after a national company decided they no longer wanted to do Pre-Treatments and one of their employees, started the business with taking over the renewals of that company and agreements with builders. The company grew over the next 10 years due to the efforts of the original owners, Rod and Betty Elliot, and some employees of whom are still employed today. One of those employees includes the second and current owner of the company, Chad Berg.
