Why are termite inspections so important in Celina, Texas?
Celina Texas has two very common types of termites that can inflict a serious amount of damage in a short period of time.
The first is the subterranean termite. These types of termites will form tunnels underground in search of any wood to soil contact. Anywhere that you have beams or other exposed wood that comes into contact with the soil, the subterranean termites will invade.
From that point, they will work their way up into the wood, inflicting damage, and compromising the structure. These termites will often go for several years without showing any external signs of their presence. This is because they burrow underground, tunnel into the wood, and are basically never seen until the infestation hits a critical mass.
Drywood termites, on the other hand, search for dry wood and are often found in attics or other areas where the wood has less moisture. These tiny termites are smaller than subterranean termites but equally damage your property.
With both of these termites creeping around your house, you can see why it’s important to get a termite inspection. Additionally, any damage caused by termites is not covered by Insurance. The reason being that termite damage is considered preventable. This means that any damage incurred will be paid for out of pocket by the homeowner.
By getting a termite inspection and Celina Texas, you can ensure that your home or building is termite-free, or if there are termites, stop them before any further damage is incurred.
