Now’s the right time to repair termite damage in your home

Termites and wood destroying organisms cost Americans more than $5 billion in damage each year, and most insurance plans don’t cover the repair costs.

Termites are sneaky, destructive little creatures who do their dastardly work out of sight and, unfortunately, out of mind. Many homeowners may not realize they’ve bitten off more than they can chew with termites – until their deck starts sagging, their fence posts lean over, or their floors collapse.

Did you know that termites are just one of many pests that devour wood? Dry-rot fungus, wood-boring beetles, carpenter ants, and other organisms can cause tremendous damage to the structural integrity of your home.

Even if you merely suspect these pests or organisms have taken up residence in your home, now is time to call Clark Pest, your neighborly pest control, lawn care, and termite expert.

Termites and wood destroying organisms cost Americans more than $5 billion in damage each year, and most insurance plans don’t cover the repair costs. They will attack more than the wood in your home and will eat cellulose-based materials. These include:

  • Insulation
  • Carpeting
  • Cardboard
  • Sheetrock paper
  • Fabrics

Protecting your home from destructive subterranean, drywood, or dampwood termites is a priority of Clark Pest Control. We offer comprehensive free termite inspections conducted by highly trained inspectors (see the Clark T.I.P. program below). If termites are present, we’ll deploy the latest cutting-edge termite control products and application techniques to target and eliminate them.

Termites can cause severe damage to homes, sometimes costing thousands of dollars in repairs. Discovering termite damage at your home is stressful and worrisome, but having Clark Pest in your corner can help.

What does termite damage look like?

  • Buckling ceilings or walls
  • The appearance of water damage
  • Maze-like designs in wooden structures
  • Mud tunnels on home foundations
  • Swarms of termites

If termites, fungi, or wood-boring beetles do cause damage to your home, we can repair it so it’s as good as new. That way, you can enjoy your beautiful deck, fence, kitchen, bathroom, or other space for years to come, and you won’t have to worry about termites spoiling the party.

While termites never take a day off from their destructive ways, now is a really good time of the year to get damage caused by termites or other wood-destroying pests repaired. There’s never a wrong time to have a termite inspection done.

The best defense against termites is prevention, and ensuring that your home is structurally sound is one way to make it unattractive to subterranean termites when they swarm in the spring or when drywood termites swarm in the summer.

The Clark solution

You also should ask about Clark’s exclusive Termite Infestation Protection (T.I.P.) program, which is designed to protect your home from future infestations and damages. A full inspection must be performed to see if your home qualifies. Then, for a small monthly fee, you can avoid costly out-of-pocket treatment for all species of termites and repair expenses, which will give you peace of mind and save you money.
