If you suspect termites in or around your property, don’t wait, contact us for a thorough and immediate analysis.
The Prehistoric Pest?
Termites are one of the oldest pests; their species surviving over 120 million years. They also happen to be one of the most common wood destroying insects in the United States today. Their ability to chew through the wood in homes relatively undetected has earned them the name “silent destroyers”. They are rarely found individually, and termite infestations can range from hundreds to thousands of insects.
What is the Cost of Termite Damage?
Termite infestations can be devastating on the structural integrity of your home. Cleaning up an infestation that has gotten out of control can be costly but the damage they cause to your property can be even worse.
Termites cause over $5 billion in property damage every year in the US alone. These are costs that aren’t covered by homeowner insurance policies. Termite inspections are essential in preventing unnecessary structural damage to your home that could compromise the money in your pocket, or worse, the safety of your family.
How the Inspection is Done
Live termites are infamously difficult to spot, which is why we employ the best insect identification team in NKY and Cincinnati. Inspections begin in key areas of impact, such as your garage, attic, crawl space, and other important areas termites tend to fester that can weaken the integrity of your home.
Inspectors look for wood damage, buckling paint, frass (termite droppings), and mud tubes that termites create to protect themselves. This process is thorough to provide you with honest and detailed information about the condition of your home and if further pest control actions may need to be taken.
Protect Your Home Today
While home inspections are not required to buy or sell a home, termite inspections are often required when the home is being financed through an FHA loan, VA loan, and other types of government loans. The lender has to be sure there is no wood destroying organisms present which can quickly diminish the value of a property of any type.
It is important to have a trained pest control professional, like those on our AA Home Inspection team, come and inspect for any termite infestations or high-risk areas of infestations that could cause problems down the line. We will find what other inspectors miss and communicate useful information to exterminate and prevent termite infestations so you can save hundreds to thousands of dollars knowing unwanted guests are not eating away at your home.
