How To Protect Your Home from Termites

If you live in the southeast, it’s almost certain termites will one day invade your home, if they have not already done so. It doesn’t matter if the home is built of bricks, stucco or even built on a concrete slab, somewhere in the structure there is wood and termites will find it.

Professional termite protection against termites starts with a thorough inspection, inside the home and outside, from attic to crawl space and around your home’s exterior. Massey Services recommends that an inspection should be conducted annually; if you’re in an area where your neighbors have termites an inspection every six months may be in order. Trained termite protection technicians will spend almost an hour or more termite-protectionthoroughly inspecting your home, depending on its size.

Termites eat non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You may not see them, but chances are termites could be hard at work eating your biggest investment…your home. It is estimated that termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage each year. If an inspection detects and confirms termite damage, it is critical to have a guarantee to ensure that the damage is repaired and that re-treatment is part of the plan at no additional cost to the homeowner. Plus, Massey Services’ guarantee not only covers the structure but also the contents of the home should termites ever cause damage.
Many termite protection guarantees run annually, so it’s important to review your agreements to ensure you have the right coverage. It’s a wise investment to work with a professional pest prevention company to identify signs of termites, treat the problem and prevent further occurrences.
