Hello World! Welcome Friends! You may not think of a pest inspection as being that important. But, having regular inspections carried out by professional exterminators can save you a lot of money and stress in the long term. You may not think you have a problem with pests in your home, but it’s not always easy to tell. A regular inspection helps to identify any problems that you may have missed.
It’s especially easy to miss signs of termite infestation, and this type of infestation can lead to serious structural damage, if it’s not dealt with. A regular inspection can help stop this damage from happening.
How often should you have your home inspected?
It’s a good idea to have your home inspected for pests at least once every twelve months. Doing so can help to stop any potential problems from taking hold. If you live in an area where there is a high incidence of pests such as termites, it may be necessary to have inspections carried out on a more regular basis.
When you call an exterminator to carry out an inspection, they will come out to your property, and they will check for any potential entry points, where pests can gain access to your home. They will also check for any signs that pests may be present. Once the inspection is complete, they will talk to you about any work that needs to be carried out, and agree a plan of action with you.
Possible signs of pest infestation
As we mentioned earlier, it can be difficult to spot the presence of termites, unless you are professionally trained. You should look out for the earth tunnels that they create, or any droppings that they may have left behind. Other pests are often easier to detect. For instance, rats often chew through wood and electric cables. This damage is not just expensive to repair, it can also potentially be dangerous. You may also be able to hear rats scurrying around in your attic, or in crawl spaces. If you hear any of these types of noises, you should never hesitate to have them investigated as soon as possible. The longer you wait to investigate, the more likely it is that damage will occur.
Pests can also cause health problems for people living in your home, such as an escalation in breathing problems, including asthma.
As you can see, pests can cause several problems in your home; they can be responsible for a large amount of damage which can be expensive to repair. This is why it makes sense to have regular inspections carried out. Annual, or six monthly inspections make it easier to spot problems early, and prevent pests from taking hold. Investing money in hiring professionals to carry out these inspections can therefore end up saving you money in the long term. It’s an investment which is well worth making.
