The Pest Control Munno Para Guide before Buying a House

If you are about to buy a house in Munno Para, you should be aware of any structural damage to your new home including damages caused by termites and wood-destroying insects. It is crucial to find the best Pest Control Munno Para company to inspect your new home to avoid any additional costs or future damages. 

How Termites Can Damage a Home?

Termites are known as silent destroyers because they can chew through wood and flooring without making any noise. They are usually found in huge colonies ranging from thousands to millions depending on the species. 

Getting a Termite Inspection Before Moving in 

The repairs of the damages caused by termites can cost a lot of money depending on three main factors:

  • The severity of the damages. 
  • How long the termites have been living in your new home. 
  • The locations of the damages. 

It is crucial to get a termite inspection by a professional pest control company before closing on the contract and moving into your new place. In many states, a termite inspection is legally required to be able to close on a real estate contract. In some cases, necessary termite repairs only can cost more than the place itself and we have seen such cases before. 

Some people think that a termite inspection is the same as a regular home inspection, which is not true. Standard home inspections focus on assessing the overall condition of the property’s physical structure from the foundation of the property to its roof. On the other hand, termite inspections, which are done by professionals, usually take about an hour. During a termite inspection, the termite expert inspects and probes the entire property from the basement to the attic looking for any termite damage signs. 

The signs of termite damage include: 

  • Buckling wood. 
  • Swollen ceilings and/or floors.
  • Areas affected by water damage. 
  • Visible mazes within the furniture of walls. 
  • An odor that is similar to mold or mildew. 

After finishing the termite inspection, our expert provides you with a termite inspection report including all the details of any infestations or damages found along with the estimated costs to eliminate the termites. 

  • Treating a Termite InfestationAfter providing a cost estimate for eliminating termites, your pest control company will need to visit your place again, develop the best termite plan, and start termite treatment. Each process is different depending on many factors such as the type of the termites and the severity of the infestation. However, most treatments include fumigation or spraying insecticide to eliminate the termite colonies. 

    Once the treatment process is done, homeowners and inspectors will assess the damages together to find the best contractor to fix them. Fixing these damages will increase the amount of money you invest in the property. The repairing process involves demolition and replacing the damaged structures. 

    Of course, some houses can be free of termite infestations. Homeowners need to avoid future termite infestations by doing a few things to prevent termites from invading their property including: 

    • You should keep your property dry and prevent water from getting inside your home. 
    • Try to keep woodpiles and mulch far away from the foundation of your property. 
    • Look for any signs of termites and termite damages such as warping and swarmer wings. 
    • Certain termite infestation patterns in floors, walls, and ceilings.
