Traditional inspections are a must when you buy a new home, but there is another kind of inspection that often gets overlooked, the termite inspection. Termites are known for feeding on wood, but the evidence is generally very subtle. This is due to the fact that termites feed on wood from the inside out, the evidence isn’t always evident until the infestation is already out of hand. Traditional home inspectors generally don’t have thorough training that allows them to recognize the subtle signs of termite damage, so you should turn to the experts at Armor Pest Control for a professional termite inspection in Baltimore.
Buying a new home is a big deal, and while any damage to your new property is concerning, termite damage can be difficult to deal with. In fact, termites cost American homeowners over $50 billion every year in property damage! Having a termite inspection now will not only save you money, but it can also save you a big headache in the future. In all likelihood, paying for the termite inspection will be on you, the buyer, but don’t fret, because it is well worth the cost. Your home purchase agreement should be contingent on the home passing the termite inspection because termites can cause expensive structural damage.
You should never skip the termite inspection before you buy a home, and you should never leave it to a traditional home inspector. Enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your house is in the most experienced hands by turning to Armor Pest Control for your termite inspection. Contact us today to schedule yours.
