If you shudder at the mere mention of termites, you have good reason to do so. According to the US Department of Agriculture, termites and other wood-destroying insects cause an estimated $40 billion in damage to approximately 600,000 homes in the United States alone each year. Americas Choice Inspections offers termite and pest inspections so that your home doesn’t become one of the statistics. Let’s discuss why you shouldn’t take any chances with these pests and how our services can help protect your home.
Why You Need a Termite Inspection
The North Carolina Department of Agriculture recommends annual termite inspections for Charlotte area homes because the damage caused by these silent destroyers can go unnoticed for years. A termite inspection is a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of a home for evidence of wood-destroying insects. Our termite inspectors will visually inspect the entire interior of your home and exterior of your property, even accessing and entering any sub-space such as basements and crawlspaces. Our team is trained, licensed, and insured to inspect your property for these pests.
The Telltale Signs
Subterranean termites are the type that usually invades homes in our area, and the North Carolina University Cooperative Extension outlines signs to be aware of. If you notice winged adults swarming inside your house, mud tubes found on walls, floor joists, and floor systems that the mound dwellers travel through, or wood inside your home that sounds hollow or falls apart easily, then you likely have a problem. If our termite inspectors find evidence of an infestation, we will refer you to a licensed pest control company that will treat your home and place it under a warranty. All of our inspectors are experienced and qualified to perform wood-destroying insect inspections and issue the state-required forms.
