Termite Inspection Not Always Reliable

Termites

Property owners who are worried about potential termite issues (or who are planning to buy or sell a property) may enlist the help of a termite inspection to help detect the presence of termites and pinpoints locations where termites may be nesting.

A termite inspection may indeed be a good place to start, but its value can vary depending upon the skills and reliability of the inspection company involved. While there are many ethical and professional inspectors, just as with any other industry, there are some so-called professionals who don’t provide the type of service their customers expect to receive.

As this news investigation revealed, some termite inspectors speed through the process too quickly or don’t inspect important areas of the property. The report they provide isn’t worth the paper it is written on, and won’t be much help to the property owner who hired them. Worse, they may give the customer a false sense of security by failing to report a termite problem that may exist.

Homeowners do have an option available to them in the fight against termites, though. There are termite control and protection products that are affordable and easy to use. If a homeowner even just suspects they may have a termite problem, they can use these products, just to be on the safe side. It is a very small price to pay to help protect the property from the potentially major damage termites can cause.
