Termite Inspections for Added Security
Termite inspections are often required by a lending institution. Getting a termite inspection will identify possible issues and offer a much better idea of the extent of the problem you could be facing. It will certainly indicate where the termites are located and present the solutions you will have at your disposal for tackling the problem.
Once you have a termite inspection you could find that you do not have a termite infestation. It is quite possible to find a dead termite in your home and not have a problem. At certain times of the year termites will fly from their current colony to attempt to find a new place to settle. At this time of year many people will find termites in or near your home. This is not necessarily a cause for concern.
However, it is possible that you do have a problem and, in fact, it is worse than you had expected. Termites tend not to make themselves felt in a house until the problem has already reached an advanced stage. From the outside wood can look completely normal but tap it gently and you will hear a hollow sound. Termites very rarely breakthrough the outside of the wood and when they do will often attempt to repair the damage. If you notice termites, there’s a good chance the infestation is already quite advanced.
Termite inspections are recommended if there are any worries at all about termites in the home or if you have scheduled a home inspection. This will allow you to be aware of the full extent of the problem.
