THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A TERMITE INSPECTION BEFORE PURCHASING A HOME

Are you planning on buying home? Have you taken all the necessary steps? Its not always required, but having a termite inspection from a professional is very helpful when considering to buy a home. Homes in humid climates like South Florida are more susceptible to termite infestations due to increased moisture.

If you notice any of the following signs, its best to get a professional pest control service to come look at the property.

  • Kick out holes
  • Piles of wings
  • Frass (Termite droppings)
  • Swarmers
  • Damaged wood
  • Papery or hollow sounding timber
  • Tight fitting doors
  • Hard to open windows
  • Drooping drywall
  • Buckling floor boards
  • Mud tubes
  • Maze patterns in foundation or furniture
  • Squeaky floor boards
  • Peeling paint

Your home inspector likely won’t look for specific types of termite damage, so getting a professional is a must. Not just for your wallet down the line, but for your peace of mind.

The inspector will roughly take 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the home. Making sure to check attics, basements and crawlspaces. They’ll make sure to look for any signs of damage, infestation or concerns.
