Getting a free home termite inspection is a great way to find out if you have a termite infestation as it is best to take measures to prevent termites from ever entering your home. An experienced termite and pest control company can do more than just tell you about the condition of your home and whether termites are present.
Home termite inspections will reveal any past termite damage and any current infestations, but it can also reveal any conditions in and around your home that will make it easier for termites to live.
There are several things you can do to prevent termites from infesting your home:
- Make sure that your attic is properly ventilated
This will keep the amount of heat and moisture in your attic to a minimum, which are two conditions that make it easy for termites to thrive.
- Keep moisture away from your slab line
This will reduce the risk of moisture getting into or around your home minimizing the risk of a termite infestation.
- Remove rotting wood around your home
Termites love to feed on rotten wood and keeping it around your home increases the risk for termites.
- Keep firewood and mulch away from your home
Mulch and firewood are great places for termites to infest and can serve as a gateway directly into your home.
- Make sure the ducts for your dryer vents are sealed properly
The heat and moisture that are emitted from your dryer can get into your crawl space making it easier for termites to enter your home if the ducts are not properly sealed.
