Pre-Construction Termite Services
Today, the construction industry offers a wide range of services for pre-Construction Termite Inspection, Selection & Control. Most professional contractors offer both pre-construction and post-construction Termite Inspection services, but only a few offer both services at once. The companies that do both offer a full range of services to help the client to detect and treat any pre-existing or newly discovered termites.
A pre-construction termite service is designed to detect and treat existing termites prior to construction begins. This will ensure that no new termites are allowed to survive and cause trouble to your home and surrounding property. By offering this type of preventive maintenance, pro-actively hiring a licensed SOS exterminator will ensure that you avoid future costly damage and problems caused by these pesky insects.
There are a few different methods for inspecting and treating for termites in new construction projects. The most common is for a professional inspector to stick their nose in the project and determine how much damage is already present, then visually inspect the rest of the site for any further or future problems. Other methods include visual inspections of the structure, exterior, insulation, basement, walls, windows, ceilings, plumbing, wiring and siding. Other methods include an infrared camera that not only visually inspects the building but also takes pictures of the underside of the foundation, walls, insulation and siding. Once all areas of the site have been inspected and documented, a report is created and sent to the client for follow up.
If there are still unidentified termite problems after the completion of the pre-construction market survey, the next step is to get them treated before the problems become too severe. Pest management companies that specialize in treating for termites utilize a variety of different methods. Some use chemicals, others use baits and others employ both.
