3 Great Reasons to Get a Termite Inspection

While we continue to do our part to contribute to the hustle and bustle of daily life as Oklahomans, another species is closely paralleling our work ethic. While termites may not seem like a huge problem, a single acre of land could be home to as many as 14 different colonies all looking for the next meal they will bring back to the nest. Put simply, at any given time, a one-acre plot of land could be home to 14 million termites ready to chip away at your most expensive investments. If you are worried about these destructive pests, here are 3 great reasons to get a termite inspection today.

You Are Buying a New Home

Although getting a termite inspection isn’t required in most states, including Oklahoma, the conditions in Oklahoma make it a smart decision if you are planning on taking the plunge and purchasing a new home. Even better, if a termite problem is found throughout the process, you can request that the current homeowner provide the treatments as part of the sale agreement. However, if you wait to find out they are present, there’s always a chance that you could be making expensive repairs later.

You Are Building a New Home

New construction is generally the easiest way to turn your dream home into a reality or ensure that you are building a home that will last for years to come. However, without a termite inspection, you could be building a buffet on top of an active termite colony and opening your brand new home to extensive damages. Even if no termites are found following the initial construction, annual termite inspections can ensure they haven’t snuck their way onto your property.

You Just Want To Be Safe

Purchasing a home is a great way to build equity and can be a rewarding experience since it will likely be your most expensive purchase throughout your lifestyle. Unfortunately, the clear signs of termites usually aren’t noticeable by homeowners until damages have become extensive. The termite control experts at Emtec Pest Control have been safely eliminating termites from Oklahoma homes for over 20 years through the use of the Sentricon® System.
