Without a professional termite inspection, it’s almost impossible to know if the property you’re going to buy or sell has termites. The inspectors at ProTech Home & Property Inspections, Inc. can search for these pests during your home inspection or commercial property inspection for a small additional fee. This ensures you won’t find any unfortunate surprises later. Contact us at (470) 264-5860 to make an appointment in Atlanta, Suwanee, Duluth, or another surrounding city.
Termites are small, but don’t discount them based on their size. The National Pest Management Association estimates that termites do over $5 billion in property damage in the U.S. annually.
These pests are usually not found until after they have done substantial damage to your foundation or home, while some species will make it nearly impossible for anyone to notice them. Moreover, they travel in large groups. Once they find food (the wood of your home or workplace), they eat constantly — during the day and the night.
Our Termite Inspection Process
If you’re worried about the possibility of a termite infestation, ProTech is here to help. Our professionals have been specifically trained and registered with the Georgia Department of Agriculture Pest Control Division to help protect your property.
We’ll begin by looking for any of the telltale signs of termites, including the following:
- Groups of termites swarming near the house
- Termite wings near the home
- The construction of shelter tubes or mud-like tunnels
- Wood that sounds hollow or squeaky
We know the best places to look. At the end of the assessment, we’ll either give your property a clean bill of health, or your termite inspector will explain where he discovered the pests or signs of their existence. If we do find termites, we can recommend a high-quality exterminator to handle remediation.
Choose the Certified Professionals
When you’re investigating an issue as serious as termites, choose the home inspectors you can trust. According to Georgia law, only inspectors who are licensed and registered with the Department of Agriculture to inspect wood destroying insects are qualified to complete these inspections. ProTech has all of these credentials.
Moreover, we’ll complete the termite inspection at the same time we’re doing your home or commercial assessment. This means we’ll be spending approximately three hours on your property. We have a much greater chance of seeing termites and finding termite damage than a pest control company that will only spend 30 minutes on your property.
