Signs of an Infestation
We understand that your home is your sanctuary. Make sure that it stays that way with regular termite inspections from TLC Home Inspections. Checkups can keep a possible infestation much more manageable, as can awareness on your part. If your next-door neighbor has a problem, there’s a chance that you do too. Here are some signs to watch for:
- Swarming — Mature colonies of these wood-destroying insects produce swarmers (winged adults). If swarmers are found inside, that is usually a symptom of a larger problem.
- Mud Tubes — Mud tubes found on walls, floor joists, or floor systems are highways for termites. Call us at (512) 900-2191 right away if you see these signs.
- Feeding — Wood that is soft and easily disintegrates when poked is a sign of a possible infestation, as is wood that sounds hollow when you tap on it with a screwdriver handle.
Pest Inspection Expertise
Should our inspection reveal a problem, we would of course advise you to treat your home. If you would like, we can make a referral within our wide network of trusted service providers and contractors to handle the remediation. As much as we’d like to help, we can’t do it ourselves because Texas law prohibits inspectors from working on anything in a house they’ve evaluated for one year.
In addition to pest inspection services, we offer other specialty inspections including mold inspections and of course comprehensive home assessments for buyers and sellers. Check out our reviews to see what others have to say about our array of services.
