Unable to locate my business

I am unable to locate my business on Google My Business. I have opened a Google My Business account and Google has verified the business. I am also able to google the business name and the website appears in the search results but not under the Google My Business "box". Note: This is a service based business and not a store front. I work from home and would prefer not to add my home address. I hope that adding an address is not the issue. Thermal Pest Control LLC. 19287 Harmony Church Rd Leesburg, VA 20175 571.293.1430 www.thermalpc.com.

I'm not sure what you are looking for ("Unable to locate my business).

I'm supposing you are asking about this GMaps result:

What are you intending to "locate" it?

Supposed you are looking for a place label as described in here:

 

For SABs with hidden address as yours is one you can't get such a place label for obvious reasons.

Otherwise anybody can see your home.

In case I misunderstood your question:

Please elaborate it.

When searching for "pest control" "bed bug extermination" the search results do not show up in "place label" or in any other search result, even though I have a "service area" defined. If I understand what you are saying I can only get a search result for the searches above, as well as other "like" searches, is to incorporate a specific address and not a "service area". Is my assumption correct?
