Protecting your Property from Termites

protecting your property

property from termitesWhen termites show up, they cause a huge problem. Termites can nibble away at the structure of your home, affecting the stability of your house and causing fundamental damage that can be expensive to repair.

When you are searching for property in Jacksonville, termites are something that you need to stay aware of. This is especially true as you look at foreclosures in Jacksonville. While a low price on a property might seem like a great investment opportunity to jump on at first, you should always rely on the expertise of your real estate specialist. We can help you find a property that is free of troublesome pests like termites.

Summer is a particularly problematic period for properties, as termites tend to swarm and can be especially troublesome in the heat. The warm spring we are having and the expected hot summer ahead of us will be prime weather for termite problems.

Protect your Property from Termites

  • Look for their swarm: At first termites will look like ants, but there will be many of them and they will be able to fly. Look for termite swarms in corners of your property, especially around walls.
  • Termite dust: Termites eat the wood structure of your home, and as they do they leave holes in the wood and dust in their tracks. You might find this dust in your attic or around any exposed planks outside of your home.
  • Bubbled or cracked paint: If termite tunnels run close to the paint on the surface of a wall, they will leave blisters or cracks. These blemishes are a sign that termites have created colonies in the walls of your house.

Termites are not something to ignore, and they are not something that is easy to deal with on your own. Rely on the expertise of your real estate expert when looking for properties and consult with termite exterminators to assess damage when looking at properties in Jacksonville.
