It’s every homeowner’s worst nightmare: the discovery of severe termite damage.
There are a number of warning signs that can indicate the presence of termites in and around your home. The presence of dropped termite wings, wood damage around the walls and floor of your home, hollowed out wood, blisters in wooden flooring, and “mud tubes” (the tubes used by subterranean termites to gain access to your home) all point to a potential termite infestation.
While we have our fair share of bothersome pests here in South Carolina, few are as serious as termites. That’s because termites can cause extensive and costly damage to your home. Here are just a few worrying statistics:
Termites can cause a number of different types of damage to your home, including:
This damage can quickly add up, and can be costly to deal with.
The cost of dealing with termite damage varies depending on the severity of the infestation. However, the average homeowner in the U.S. suffering from termite damage spends approximately $3,000 repairing it.
Certain types of termites are more destructive than others. Formosan termites in particular can cause considerable damage to a home in as little as six months. This is why it’s essential to have your home regularly inspected for termites as part of a termite protection plan.
Having your home inspected for termites is essential to preventing damage and keeping your home in optimal condition. At Home Pest Control, we recommend a termite inspection in the following situations:
A termite protection plan from a reputable home pest control company is essential if you want to both keep your home termite free and guard against potential termite damage. But unlike conventional pest control plans -- which typically only include pest inspection and treatment services -- a comprehensive termite control plan will often include what’s called a termite bond as well.
Put simply, a termite bond is an agreement between you (the homeowner) and a home pest control company. This agreement typically contains two parts:
It’s the second part that’s so important. Termite treatment can be very costly. Plus, as we’ve seen above, dealing with termite damage can amount to thousands of dollars in repairs. Additionally, homeowners insurance doesn’t typically cover the cost of termite damage. Without a termite bond in place, any damage your home incurs will have to be paid for out of pocket.
With a termite bond, however, you won’t have to worry about potential costs related to damage. At Home Pest Control, we offer a termite protection program which includes $250,000 in damage coverage, along with a $0 deductible.
Home Pest Control offers affordable, comprehensive termite control and termite treatment services. With our Home Shield Termite Protection service, you’ll receive annual termite monitoring, a detailed termite inspection, termite treatment via our highly effective colony elimination system, and $250,000 in coverage in the event of termite damage.
