About Us

Van Gelder Enterprises, Inc. employs only permanent, full time, Field Operations, Administrative and Sales Staff.
Our Field Technicians were chosen because of their experience, commitment and work ethic. After all, their work is the forum from which the Company is judged and upon which we have built our positive and well-known reputation. Frequently, we receive accolades from clients who praise our field staff.  We’re proud of our people, and the pride shows in everyone’s work.

We utilize the finest equipment and materials made.
We maintain a fleet of 12 trucks. Six of the units are mounted with 45’ mobile aerial booms. All trucks carry on-board boilers to provide high pressure steam blast/hot water, as needed for cleaning projects. Our trucks are equipped with the latest equipment to carry out many tasks.

We do all of our own work – No subcontracting.
This is important because we can maintain control of all phases of our work. No excuses, no passing the buck. This allows us great flexibility in scheduling our work, or if the need arises, the ability to change schedules.

We guarantee our work – In writing.
Our Birds Away/Pigeons Away division offers an iron-clad five year Installation and Performance Guarantee for physical barriers, and two years for gel repellent. We have been around long enough to assure our clients, that if the birds come back to an area that we have treated, we will be back to take care of the problem, at no additional charge – It’s guaranteed!

We cover the entire Bay Area.
From Napa and Vacaville to San Francisco to the South Bay, plus the Peninsula, and East Bay. Our work includes commercial, industrial and residential projects. For special commercial projects, we have been as far south as Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, north to Reno and East to Modesto and Bakersfield.

We can supply impressive references.
We can supply names, cities and dates of jobs completed. This provides an ample source of information on the quality of our work. And speaking of reference, from 1997 onwards, we received Certification from Value Star and more recently from “Diamond Certified”.  Both are service contractor rating companies.

The Company has earned the California State Contractor’s License #724529
Additionally, we have several specialty licenses issued by the California State Department of Pesticide Regulation and the Structural Pest Control Board. License number QL30693 requires on-going education, each year to remain qualified. We are constantly striving to improve our service and techniques, through an on-going material application and installation training/development program for our staff. We also undergo additional training as it becomes available from our suppliers and other sources.
