By investing in regular inspections from a licensed termite inspector, you can be sure your property is safeguarded against termites.

At Springer Professional Home Services, we offer reliable and effective termite inspections, providing peace of mind to homeowners and businesses across Central Iowa.

Top Reasons to Prioritize Termite Inspections

Having a termite inspection done can bring you mental peace and financial security as you move into your new home. Here are our termite experts’ top three reasons to get a termite inspection in the home you’re considering purchasing:

  • Financial Security: Termites cause over $5 billion in damages annually in the United States alone. Investing in a termite inspection is a fraction of the cost compared to repairing termite-infested structures.
  • Preventive Measures: Without a thorough inspection, your property could already be harboring termites, leading to extensive damage requiring significant financial investment.
  • Proactive Protection: Identifying termites early allows for prompt action, minimizing damage and associated repair costs. It’s better to be informed and proactive rather than dealing with the consequences of an undetected infestation.

How Often Should You Inspect for Termites?

Regardless of your property’s age, annual termite inspections are recommended to ensure ongoing protection. In addition to professional inspections, it’s essential to remain vigilant and aware of potential signs of termite activity between visits.

Termite inspections are essential when buying or selling a home to assess any potential infestations and plan necessary treatments or repairs.

Only a trained inspector can accurately identify active termites and assess the extent of damage. Early detection can save you from costly repairs down the line.

If a home passes a termite inspection, then the real estate transaction will proceed as usual. If the home fails a termite inspection, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you shouldn’t proceed with the purchase. Most of the time, a realtor can help you negotiate a plan of action with the selling party to ensure that the home is termite-free before you move in. If a home has a severe termite infestation, then you may want to consider a different housing option.
