Why a Termite Inspection is So Important

Termite InspectionTermites can cause significant property damage—which can be very costly to repair (and generally isn’t covered by homeowners insurance). If you are buying a property, it’s important that you get a termite inspection performed before the closing. And in fact most banks or lenders will require this as part of the loan approval process. While this may seem like a hassle, it’s definitely a worthwhile investment that can save you a lot of money and aggravation later.

Of course, if you are on the other side of the situation, a termite inspection can be cause for great anxiety. Would-be buyers can (and often do) back out of a pending purchase if the termite inspection reveals a problem.

Even if you aren’t buying or selling your property, you still have to live in—and pay for—it, so you want to make sure it is safe and free of pests that could cause serious problems. A termite inspection is a great way to put your mind at ease and ensure that you don’t have to worry about termite damage.

If the worst case scenario happens, and the inspection reveals a termite problem, you want to act quickly to minimize the damage. Fortunately, ePest offers many products that are effective at killing termites and solving this dreaded problem.
