Fallbrook is a beautiful community known for its rural charm. Located on green hillsides, the town is largely made up of older homes and properties. While this is something that adds to the charm of this neighborhood, it’s also something that can become a problem for residents.
Unlike newer homes with additions like Alumawood patio covers and composite decks, older homes tend to have more natural wood structures, like wood decks, gazebos, patio covers, and more. While these structures are beautiful, they are also prime real estate for termites. Properties with dead trees, fallen tree branches, tree stumps, and piles of chopped wood are also at an increased risk.
Many people think they only need an inspection when they buy their house, sell their house, or see evidence of termite activity. However regularly scheduled inspections can help nip problems in the bud.
If left unchecked, termites can do a huge amount of damage. If a large infestation is discovered, not only will you have to have your home tented to get rid of the termites, but you will also have to repair the damage that was done—particularly if it was structural damage. However, if you find termites early by having a regular termite inspection, you may be able to eliminate them with a less invasive spot treatment. At Knockout Pest Control & Termite, we offer both orange oil and heat treatments for localized termite colonies (termites that are confined to one area in the home.) We can also repair any areas that were damaged by termites.
Don’t put off having a termite inspection done on your Fallbrook home! It’s one of those home maintenance tasks that can pay off if termites are discovered early. Even if we don’t find any termites during our inspection, just having it done can give you peace of mind, knowing that your home is free from termites.
