Do you have Termites? Do you need help with Termite Inspection, Treatment and Control?
Fort Lauderdale homeowners have probably heard about the risks that Termites pose, but many don't bother to take the time to hire a qualified Termite Control service to inspect the home.
Termites can completely devastate a structure, eating away at the wood that comprises the home's frame and roof. For this reason, it's essential to perform routine Termite Inspection and Termite Treatment.
Fort Lauderdale homeowners often fall into a false sense of security. That's because many newer Florida homes are constructed of cinder block and while this makes these homes a bit less prone to Termite damage, there is still a risk.
Unfortunately, a cinder-block homes walls are constructed of cinder-block but the home's inner walls and roof are comprised of wood which is very prone to Termite damage. What's more, the cinder blocks virtually never extend beyond the first floor, so nearly all two story homes have a wooden frame on the second floor. If you have wood in your home, you're vulnerable to Termites!
The Benefits of Termite Control Treatment and Inspection
Termites can also cause damage that may result in sudden structural failure, which can lead to serious injury and extensive damage.
Signs of Termites can include:
Sand-like debris found in window sills, near baseboards and in other areas of your home.
Termites can be absolutely devastating to your home, causing serious damage that can be exacerbated in a serious storm such as a hurricane. This means your home could be completely destroyed by a hurricane that it should have easily withstood --- all because termites weakened the wooden structures that comprise your home's frame and roof.
Blistering of what should be solid wood;
Dead termites or shed termite skins/wings inside your home, especially in the spring and fall; and Termite mud tunnels in or around your home.
Termites can also be attracted to homes by rotting trees/stumps and even wood chips or bark mulch that's used in landscaping. For this reason, bark mulch and wood chips should not be used in areas that abut your home.
With periodic termite inspections, Fort Lauderdale residents can identify the presence of termites before they cause extensive damage. Generally, once established, termites will not stop eating until they run out of food or your home collapses. So don't wait for this problem to go away on its own!
