A Home Inspection is a great way to Professionally Identify Termite Activity

 

Termites are never a pretty picture

The sight of termites in and around your home is never a good thing. As a homebuyer, it can be a deal killer and it’s a sign that you’ll need to dip into your emergency funds in order to treat and eradicate them. After they are gone, you’ll need to repair the damage caused to the home’s structure. In any case, the termites are not welcome visitors.

Most termite treatment plans are very effective in eliminating and keeping termites away. Although, the treatment would need to be regular to ensure that once the termites are gone that they stay away.

The state of Florida is a termite hot spot, which is not good news to residents or potential homebuyers needing to relocate. This means homeowners have a duty to keep their eyes peeled for termite infestation, termite activity, and damage.

Termites love dark and damp rotting wood; they are voracious wood eating insects that work in a team to devour. The insects have a tendency to get into any cracks in a home’s foundation. Once inside they have access to any wood used in the structure’s joists. If termites are not treated, and found early, the damage they cause is both devastating and costly.

The problem with termite damage is that it happens from the inside out and is difficult to detect until the damage is advanced. The best way to ensure your property, or your potential property, is termite free is to request a termite inspection.

Most home inspection companies offer a termite inspection as part of a specialized service. If you have any concerns, regarding termite infestation, then make sure to speak with a local and certified home inspector.

A professional home inspection company is able to provide you with a qualified and experienced home inspector. A home inspector is able to evaluate the damage and instruct you on what the most effective treatment plans are, and the best way to get repairs done. Get termites treated fast, so you don’t have to move out when they move in!
