Termite infestations and damage can be devastating to any property. Termites are often called “silent destroyers” because they may be secretly hiding and thriving on properties or yard without any immediate signs of damage. Because all termites consume cellulose-based plant materials, all homes regardless of their construction type can provide cellulose food for termite infestation.
Even if you find your dream home, the presence of termites may be a deal breaker. You may be willing to take on minor repairs and upgrades, but there can be some conditions that aren’t worth your time or money. One of those is for sure a termite infestation and the damage they can cause.
What are Termite Inspections?
A proper and professional termite inspection is an extremely thorough home inspection that’s done by an unbiased third-party termite inspection company. They use sensors, cameras on extendable arms, and the experienced eye of a termite inspector. They can see, smell and detect any termites or issues that might affect the structural integrity of the home.
Why It’s Important to Inspect for Termites?
Termites are sneaky and destructive little creatures. They possess enzymes that easily regulates their bodies moisture content as long as they’re consuming wood. A termite infestation can quickly go unnoticed if you do not know what to look for when you have one. This is what makes termites so difficult to both find and treat.
The current home owner may not even be aware they have termites. An inspection provides a termite certification that identifies the property condition by listing any damage observed and making recommendations as to whether the structure needs further treatment or not. This is where the qualified and trusted team at Texas Country Inspection can help.
