I have not worn a hat while in business for my self. To me it looks sort of unprofessional and says hey customer I didn't shower this morning. Do you wear a hat or let your techs wear one? Do you think its unprofessional?

I disagree. I think certain hats look great on my techs and myself. Also, we get a lot of rain up here, so hats are somewhat essential.

I second that Brandon,
I think hats are well suited for this profession. I also use a hard hat when i do basement and crawl space inspections.
More than once I wished i wore one.

I'm always a little disappointed when I ride by the Orkin man out in the yard doing his thing and he's not wearing that goofy hardhat they always show them wearing in the commercials.

I've always worn a baseball cap. If I don't my chrome dome gets sunburned.

I always wear at least a ball cap with company logo. It serves multiple purposes:
- Matching logo on hat, shirt and vehicle shows uniformity of the brand and professionalism

- I also have a chrome dome and the hat prevents sunburn and acts as a sweat band, so I don't have sweat pouring off of my head and onto furniture, floors, counters, etc..

- Consider it PPE. A hat helps protect your scalp from any dermal absorption of mist or over spray.
