Why Do You Need a Termite Inspection?
These critters can destroy wood, insulation, and siding causing damage to any building they make their home. Many times an infestation can go undetected to the untrained eye for years until a major problem occurs.
Our inspectors will perform a visual evaluation of the accessible areas of the home. This includes the main floors, attics, crawl spaces, and basements. If any sign of damage or previous termite treatment is found we’ll let you know.
We currently don’t offer services to remove insects if found, so that means we’re only incentivized to deliver a quality termite inspection, whereas other companies that do may be inclined to find any reason to recommend treatment.

The Dangers Of
Most people don’t think about termites until they start seeing the damage they’ve done. By then, it can be expensive and difficult to get rid of them. That’s why it’s important to have a home termite inspection at least once a year. There are several signs that a building may be infested with termites. The most obvious sign is the presence of termites themselves. Another sign is the presence of winged insects near doors and windows. Tunnels made of mud may also be a sign of an infestation.
