Termites can cause serious damage to homes, but it’s not always easy to spot. These pests can eat away at wooden structures from the inside. While these structures appear solid on the outside, they might be hollow and weak on the inside.
How can you tell if you need to have Freehold exterminators over to handle a termite infestation? These are the common signs of termite damage:
• Floors that are buckled
• Windows or door frames that droop or sag
• Ceilings that have a sunken appearance
• Cracks and tiny holes in wood
These signs indicate that termites are inside the walls of your home and have already caused significant damage to the wood. This can make your home dangerous due to the risk of having floors, ceilings or other structures collapse.
It’s crucial to have pest control professionals inspect your home for termite infestations before structural damage happens in order to keep you and your family safe.
Keep in mind that you might have an easier time discovering you have a pest problem if you see termites swarming inside your home. This typically happens during spring, so be on the lookout for these insects at this time.
