Termite Inspection Services

Termites are a subterranean insect that feeds on wood. They can infest homes and eat through the wooden structures within. They can move in and infest a home year-round but are most often active in the Spring. While the presence of termites will generally require a pest control service, it is important to regularly have your home inspected for termites. Because of the severe structural damage that a termite swarm can create, you should schedule a termite inspection every year.

Termite Damage

Termites will eat through wooden structures in the home, which can lead to severe integrity loss. Termite infestations in their early stages might appear similar to water damage. The appearance of buckling or swollen wood can be a sign of either water or termite damage. Termite infestations can also smell like mold or mildew. Because of this, you may not be aware of the growing swarm in your home. Generally, termites will create maze-like tunnels through wooden structures as they continue to eat through the wood. This can cause the structure to weaken and potentially collapse. When left unchecked, a swarm can damage a house beyond repair. While it can take years for termites to completely destroy a house, even a few months of damage can require extreme repairs. This is why you need a regular termite inspection each year.
