Termites can be beneficial insects in nature, but in your home, they can cause big problems. Termites live in colonies under-ground and work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year eating wood and wood type products, including the paper right off the sheet rock. However, termites cannot distinguish between wood in a forest, or the wood your home is made of.
Termites cause hundreds of millions of dollars damage to homes and businesses annually, more than storms and fires combined and the damaged they cause is not covered under most homeowner's insurance policies. This make you responsible for the cost of the repairs. Termite infestations can go undetected for many years as they hide behind walls, floor coverings, and insulation. Meanwhile termites may be destroying your property from the inside out.

Key Benefits of a Termite Inspection
If you're buying a home, a certified termite inspection can save you from buying a money pit. There is nothing worse than paying for someone else's mistakes.
If you're selling a home, a termite inspection can help you get termite damage fixed and put that cost into the sale price of your home. Termites are a silent pest that can infest a home for years without detection. If you go to sell your home and find out you have termites, the buyer will demand that you have the termite damage fixed before they will close. You'll either have to foot the bill or hope to find a new buyer.
A home is an investment. Whether you've paid on it for years or are just beginning to pay, the last thing you need is a colony of termites weakening your support beams and damaging load-bearing walls. This kind of damage is difficult, and sometimes impossible, to fix.
The truth about termite inspections.
Anyone can check a home for termites, but only a certified termite inspector is trained and qualified to determine for sure if a home has termites. These insects can even get past a certified home inspector who is trained to look for potential problems. Because of this, some states, Texas included, now require a certified termite inspector to fill out an NPMA-33 form, to be sure that no wood destroying organisms are present. Whatever your situation is, make sure to protect your investments with a proper termite inspection from Happy Pest Solutions.
