Termite Control

Termites won’t limit their path of destruction to your insulation, obviously. They much prefer the good stuff that your home has to offer: The wood. So your home could be experiencing extensive termite damage but your insulation could be fine, and your energy bills could be stable.

In addition to scheduling your yearly termite inspection near East Valley, you should also look out for the other signs of possible termite infestation. By watching for these signs, you might be able to catch the problem early and have it corrected before the damage becomes more extensive.

Here are some of the common signs of termites in your home:

  • Sagging or squeaky floor boards
  • Loose tiles
  • Pinpoint holes in the drywall
  • Discolored drywall or peeling paint
  • Windows or doors that don’t open properly (or don’t open at all)
  • Patterns in the floors or walls that look like mazes

  • Buckling floor boards or laminate
  • Wood that has a hollow sound when tapped
  • Obviously damaged or crumbling wood
  • Piles of termite feces, which may look like salt and pepper
  • Piles of termite wings, which may look like fish scales
  • Mud tunnels near the foundation of your home

When we talk about termite damage, we usually talk about damage to the wood in your home. Joists can be weakened, and you can experience damage like sagging floors, shifted window and door frames, peeling paint, and more. Serious infestations that are left unchecked can result in even more dramatic damage.
