Termites chew away on your home 7 days a week and 24 hours a day without you noticing. These silent wood eating pests can cause serious damage to a property in a very short amount of time. Although, signs of termite damage may only be noticeable after a considerable amount of damage has already occurred. You always want to have your property annually inspected by a qualified and reputable pest control company to reduce the chance of termite infestation and resulting damage.
Make sure not to let your home be another statistic. Having a termite problem will decrease your homes market value. The damage is not insurable under your building insurance policy so it pays off to have your property regularly checked. The cost of repairs for termite damage depends on the size, location and even the accessibility of the infestation and the home’s construction. Estimated average damage to a home is $3000 to $7000 possibly even more not covered by insurance. Termites cause an estimated $5 billion in damages each year in the United States.
If you are planning on buying a house, don’t let termites destroy your investment. The last thing you want is to buy termites so safe guard your building purchase with an inspection. Just because you can’t see or hear the termites it does not mean they are not eating. Consider yourself lucky if you have never seen termites.
