Our Story: 37 Years in Business and Counting

In January of 1981, spearheaded by Clem Sfreddo along with his two brothers, Phil and Joe, Triple ‘S’ Pest Control was founded here in Manassas. These brothers decided to take a risk, and now 37 years later that risk has paid off and Triple ‘S’ has grown to become one of the Top 100 Pest Management companies in the U.S.

Family owned and operated since inception, the Triple ‘S’ philosophy is really quite simple – quality service at an affordable price that guards human and environmental health.

Initially, the business focused on residential pest control only, but that focus shifted in 1985 when Triple ‘S’ began to also service commercial accounts, mostly apartment and condominium buildings. As expertise in the concepts and practices of Integrated Pest Management (“IPM”) developed and expanded beginning in 1989, the business began to service health care, food service and other commercial industry clients.

In 2000, family, friends, and employees were shaken up and deeply saddened when one of the founders, Clem, passed away. His sons Tony and Phil wanted the Triple ‘S’ legacy to live on and embody all the great things Clem believed in. Both sons had been with the company for about a decade at the time when they officially took the family business over and they still run it together today.

“My father always used to tell me we are not given or guaranteed customers. People don’t care what you know until they know you care,” said Tony. “Talk with your customers, but listen to them even more.”  This mindset continues to permeate how Tony and Phil run the business today.

Triple ‘S’ may be a small business, but it’s a mighty business making a difference in the local community. Call today at 703-368-8000 or 800-457-3785 to experience top-notch customer service and pest control.

Happy Anniversary Triple ‘S’!
