Why You Should Get Regular Termite Inspections In Hartford

Why You Should Get Regular Termite Inspections In Hartford

It goes without saying that the most important reason you should get regular termite inspections for your Hartford property is that they can do a lot of damage. Termites feed on wood. If they choose to feed on the wood in your home, it can lead to costly repairs. These repairs can plague you during your retirement years when you're looking to take advantage of the investment you have in your home, they can come at you as an unexpected expense at any time during ownership, and they can cause trouble for you when you're hoping to sell your home and find another. A termite inspection can help you catch termites early and prevent the need for costly repairs. Here are a few more reasons to get regular termite inspections for your Hartford home.

1. Termites Are Difficult To Detect

If you're thinking you'll see termites when they start to damage your home, you're likely to be disappointed. The termites that destroy properties in Hartford are subterranean termites. These insects are notoriously sneaky. It's almost as if they're wired to be sneaky.

  • Worker termites are photosensitive. They avoid light at all costs.
  • A worker termite has a thin skin and must stay in moist soil or bring soil up into their tunnels to stay hydrated. If tunnel walls are breached, they will seal them to prevent air from getting inside and drying them out. But they rarely breach their tunnel walls because of their incredible ability to detect light.
  • Only one type of termite will show itself to you. It is often referred to as a swarmer. These are female and male reproductives. A Swarmer is attracted to light and is able to be outside in the dry air. But swarms don't last for more than 30 minutes, and swarmers quickly disappear into the ground after mating. They can appear and disappear in the time it takes you to go grab a bag of chips at the store.

2. Life Gets Busy

There are many things that can capture your attention. You get ready for work. You drop the kids off at school. You go to work. You pick the kids up. You come home. You do the laundry. You mow the lawn. You cook a meal. You drop one of your kids off at an extracurricular activity. You visit family. You get the groceries. You bring a vehicle in for repair. Your day can be packed with these and a long list of other activities. While we don't know what your specific day looks like, we know that it can be difficult to remember to do routine termite inspections. Life gets in the way, and important things, like termite inspections, can be put on a shelf to do later.

3. You're Ready To Make The Sale

Life can turn on a dime, and you may find yourself in need of selling your home quickly. If your home is being inspected for termites regularly, you're always ready to move forward with a sale. Sure, that probably isn't something you're expecting to do, but it pays to be ready in the event that it becomes necessary.

4. It Is Better To Budget Termites

When you invest in routine inspections, you greatly reduce the risk of surprise expenses. We mentioned this at the start of this article, but it bears a little more detail. Unexpected expenses can wipe your savings out or force you to make hard choices that could impact the value of your home. It is far better to consider the unexpected, and budget for it now. Termite inspections can be added to your budget as a line item, and it can be a tiny expense when the cost is spread over a twelve-month budget plan.
