3 Reasons Your Ft. Bragg Home Needs Termite Protection

Destroyed Wood

Reason 1: Termites Are Destructive

As we have already mentioned, termites are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage each year, but what does that damage look like? Termites are wood-destroying insects that chew their way into homes, eating them from the inside out. The most common termites here in Fort Bragg are subterranean termites. These termites are known for their preference of soft, water-damaged woods and will eat through it along the grain where it is softest. Given enough time, this consumption can cause floors to dip, wallpaper to bubble, walls to buckle, and other serious structural issues to happen around your home.

Reason 2: Homeowners Insurance Doesn’t Cover Termites

Do you have homeowner’s insurance for your home? Most people do. What you may not know is that your insurance does not cover termite damage. The reason for this is that insurance providers consider termite damage a preventable disaster, meaning you could have stopped it with the proper precautions such as professional termite control services.

Reason 3: Termites Are Nearly Impossible To Treat Alone

With some pests, you can see them, treat for them, and know if your treatments are working. With termites, they remain hidden so no matter what you do, you will never know for certain if your home is safe. In addition to this, store-bought termite protection contains dangerous chemicals which, if used improperly, could put you, your family, and your pets at risk.
