Your home is an investment, and with that investment comes many responsibilities, including the upkeep of the property. While some of those items are obvious, others, like scheduling an annual termite inspection, are not. Termites are typically only seen during a swarm, so many homeowners are under the assumption that their property is untouched. It can be hard to spot signs of termites. Unfortunately, your home could be eaten away underneath your feet, with you, the homeowner, utterly oblivious until the damage is done. The experts at A Five Star Termite & Pest Control recommend getting your home inspected for termites annually to avoid thousands of dollars of repairs.
Why an Annual Termite Inspection is Important
Regardless of the age of your home, your home should be inspected once a year by A Five Star Termite & Pest Control technician. The inspection cost is well worth the money you will save in repair bills should your house become the target of termites. Termites are destructive and, if left unchecked, can damage the home’s support beams. Older homes are at greater risk for termite attacks; that being said, it’s still a good idea to get your home inspected, even if the property is only a few years old. An annual termite inspection will help protect your home from a termite invasion and make it much easier to sell if you decide to put it on the market. Keeping a record of your annual inspections shows potential buyers that you took care of the property.
Professional Termite Inspection is Better than DIY
Many homeowners are under the assumption they can do their termite inspections themselves. Termites can be difficult to identify, and many over counter remedies are time-consuming and ineffective. For example, treating your soil with termiticide barriers. Your A Five Star Termite & Pest Control expert has the knowledge and tools to properly inspect your property for signs of termites and termite damage. The inspection results will then be used to provide your home with an extensive treatment plan to eliminate these destructive pests if needed.
What to Expect During a Termite Inspection
Your A Five Star Termite & Pest Control technician will professionally analyze your property, looking for signs of termites and termite infestations. If you have researched, you may know some of the more apparent signs of termites; your technician will inspect for those and the lesser-known ones. Your annual termite inspection allows your technician to inspect your property and create and execute a plan to eradicate all traces of termites.
What Happens if You Ignore Termites
If you miss your annual inspection and wait too long to schedule the next one, you risk allowing termites to infiltrate and damage your home. Termite damage can be extensive, potentially destroying the foundation of your home—the more damage, the more expensive the repairs. In some instances, rebuilding a section of your home may even be necessary. Avoid heartache and protect your purse strings by scheduling your yearly A Five Star Termite & Pest Control inspection. Stop termites in their tracks and be confident knowing that your property is protected.
