Do you ever lie awake at night worrying about whether or not you have a termite problem in your home? This may sound a little dramatic, but the fact is that termites pose a serious issue for homeowners in Arizona. Unfortunately many of them don’t even know they have a termite infestation until it is too late. That is why it is so important to hire a specialist to provide a termite inspection report before you buy a house and to conduct a free termite inspection every year after you purchase one. You’d be amazed at the peace of mind a simple inspection can provide.
There are a lot of things to think about before buying a home. One thing that should not be overlooked, however, is a termite inspection. A termite control specialist can inspect the home you are thinking of buying for signs of termite damage and prepare a termite inspection report that details existing and potential termite problems on the property. Failing to get a pre-purchase inspection can cost you thousands of dollars in home repairs in the future.
Once you’ve purchased a home, you should make sure to get a free termite inspection each year thereafter. A specialist will examine the areas inside and outside your home for discarded wings; mud tubes, tunnels, and mazes; structural damage; cracks and holes around doors, windows and points where utility pipes enter your home; and other signs of termite infestation. Even if you’ve never seen a termite in your home, failing to get a yearly inspection can be a costly mistake. The desert-dwelling termites in Arizona live deep underground, build shelter tubes to travel to and from your home, and feed on spring wood beneath the surface of timber, leaving the outside of the wood appearing undamaged. It therefore is not uncommon for homeowners with a serious infestation to have never laid eyes on a single termite.
