Importance of Having a Termite Treatment in Your Home:
Termites are fast breeders and live to destroy anything wooden on your property. If you’ve spotted termites on your property, they have likely already caused damage to your home.
Luckily, you can prevent further damage with a professional termite control. Getting a jump start on a termite treatment is key to saving homeowners hundreds or even thousands of dollars of property damage.
Not sure if you have termites? Unfortunately, in north Texas there is a high chance that termites have already started their destruction before you spot them.
During a termite inspection, the exterminator will identify any previous damage and establish a treatment plan to prevent your property from further destruction. A termite exterminator may also recommend steps to repair damage and ways to make your home less appealing to termites.
Increase in property value
As discussed above, the treatment plan recommended should include prevention so that future damage by termites is avoided.
Not only does this save you from spending money on costly repairs, but it will protect your home’s investment if and when you decide to resell your home.
From doors to flooring, our homes are primarily made of wood, so regular termite inspections are imperative. But it doesn’t end there, termites have been known to gnaw on furniture, cupboards, and foundations.
In simple terms, termites are born destructors and will seek out anything wooden in our homes including furniture. A regular termite inspection and termite treatment will protect your personal property and your home’s value.
Termites are more than just perpetual gnawers and their annoyance goes beyond just destruction. Termites have also been known to cause several allergies to humans as well as pets.
For those that are especially vulnerable with respiratory problems like asthma, a termite infestation can adversely affect their health. With regular termite control, you can exterminate the infestation before termites spread allergens everywhere.
If a pest control professional determines that you do have a termite infestation, you may want to consider having your home’s air quality monitored and invest in home air quality improvements until the infestation is resolved.
No home buyer wants to buy a house that is being destroyed by termites. And since termites can be hard to detect, most home lenders will require a termite inspection prior to closing.
If you are even considering selling your home in the future you’ll want to document and disclose any information about any termite inspection that took place in the home. The document should be legal and indicate the name of the termite exterminator for acceptance. We, at SafePro Pest Control, can provide you with legal documentation of a termite inspection should you need it
Save on renovation expenses
Termites are silent destroyers. You may not recognize the infestation until a significant amount of damage is visible. You might see chunks of wood missing or a big hole.
Unfortunately, this means termites can also put a big hole in your pocket. Depending on the size and duration of the infestation you may be looking at a fair amount of repair work necessary and that could cost big bucks.
Investing in termite control is worthwhile because it could save you hundreds and maybe thousands in the long run. With a regular termite inspection, an exterminator can spot problem areas before they become expensive problem areas.
At SafePro Pest Control, we recommend an annual termite inspection for best results. Our experts will help you in getting rid of termites and preventing entry in the future.
As discussed above, termite pest control can help you to get rid of a termite infestation. But only if you choose a professional and experienced termite exterminator.
With our years of expertise, SafePro Pest Control is locally known for its termite treatment in Texas.

A termite inspection can lead to solutions that prevent your house from becoming food for troublesome termites. There are a number of things that an exterminator will look for with a routine termite inspection. You may spot some of these on your own, but only a professional exterminator will be able to detect the vastness and longevity of an existing termite infestation. Here are a few things a professional exterminator will look for during a termite inspection:
Mud tubes and raised tunnels that act as the primary path for termites to travel into and around your property.
Termites blend in with the soil and can become camouflage with your home’s foundation. Termites will travel from the foundation to your property via mud tubes and high soil. Termites don’t like to travel far, and fortunate for them there’s plenty of wood to munch on in your home’s flooring.
Mud tubes are one of the first things our experts check during an inspection. A professional exterminator should check the flooring and identify an infestation before proceeding further. If they find an infestation, they will clear the mud tubes and fix any termite damage they may have caused.
Doors and windows
Besides flooring, termites usually gnaw on doors and windows during an infestation. There are various ways to identify the presence of termites like hard-to-open doors, hollow sounding doors, and swollen wood.
Furthermore, you may notice tiny holes in the doors and windows if you have termites on the property.
At SafePro, our professionals check the level of destruction and suggest repairs accordingly. In most cases, we recommend replacing the door or window as termites degrade the quality of wood and the window is less efficient at keeping cold and warm air out of your home.
Outside the property
It may surprise you that a termite infestation can also begin outside your home or office. Termites attack wood piles, stored wooden logs, pet houses, and other wooden items that may be stored outside.
Also, termites that start breeding outside your property, will generally find a way to enter inside. When possible, our experts will work to stop the infestation before it heads inside your home.
During a termite inspection, we don’t just inspect your home, but the home’s exterior as well. No matter where the termites originate, we find the source and work hard to get rid of them for good.
As discussed above, indoor inspection is just one area of an extensive termite inspection. At SafePro Pest Control, we look for all signs of termite destruction inside your property.
During termite control treatment, we use flashlights to identify any termite damage. If there’s an infestation, our experts will show you pinholes, cracks, and imperfections created by the termites, so that you are an informed homeowner.
From doors to flooring, we check everything to determine whether there’s a termite infestation on your property or not.
It’s also possible for termites to set up residence in your furniture. Especially older pieces that are made almost entirely of wood.
Termites have been known to destroy beds, dining tables, and even wardrobes. If you have furniture tucked away in the garage, attic, or another place in your home that doesn’t get used much, those are more susceptible to a termite infestation.
We understand the concern about valuable or sentimental furniture and generally our experts can inspect it without moving it. If there is evidence of termite destruction, we will assist by recommending possible fixes and replacement options.

Health Implications of Termite Infestation
There’s no doubt that a termite infestation can cause damages to both your property but termites can lead to various health issues.
Termites may not carry infectious diseases like rodents do, but they can cause several allergies and skin problems.
For instance, if you or a loved one suffers from asthma they may experience respiratory problems during a termite infestation.
Furthermore, although rare, termites have also been known to bite humans and cause skin problems and discomfort.
Besides the allergens, a termite infestation could lead to sudden injuries around the home.
Suppose you’re about to sit on your dining chair, but termites have been working hard to degrade the structural integrity of the leg. If the chair were to collapse it could cause severe harm to whoever is sitting in it. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that injuries could happen with termite chewed flooring, beds, and sofa sets.
