Common Termite Control Questions
It is much more expensive to get Charlotte termite inspection and/or treatment
if you are not under an annual contract.
Additionally, unless you are professionally trained in termite inspection you may never know you have termites until they have done substantial damage. The tell tale signs usually only show up in places that are so inaccessible you will not see them.
Many times only a Killingsworth professionally trained termite
inspector can find the termites before they do damage to
the structure. Protect your biggest investment by having
the insurance of re-treatment and in some cases damage coverage.
Does a renewal cover termite damage?
You will have to verify that with your Killingsworth Professional. There are many different damage warranties in the market place today and some are better than others. Most damage warranties only pertain to damage from active termites that are present after the treatment. Killingsworth's damage warranty covers any damage that is shown to be free of high moisture and wood to ground contact.
What does a Killingsworth Professional Technician
look for during an annual termite inspection?
In most cases, he will do a visual termite inspection for
signs of termites in the exposed wood under your structure
and around the exterior of your home. They may also tap
on or probe exposed wooded members of your structure to
look for soft spots in the wood. There are areas of your
home that are not accessible and cannot be viewed during
the inspection. Coverage on your home is critical because
termites, by nature, do not necessarily show up in the accessible
areas of your home or structure because they protect themselves
from light. In many cases, there can be damage made from
the inside of the wood. If at any time the termites are
exposed to light, they simply fill in the holes with dirt,
making it camouflaged to the untrained eye.
I am never home when my Charlotte pest management
company comes to inspect. Should I require them to go inside
Yes. You should call your Charlotte esterminator and request
that they come back for termite inspection for your entire
home, when you are present. Typically, an inspection just
around the exterior is not enough to detect termites.
What do I get for my termite renewal payment each year?
Because the laws differ from state to state, the only thing
a Pest Management Professional can legally provide is an
interior and exterior termite inspection and re-treatment
of your home, should termites re-appear. You must review
your Termite Renewal Agreement carefully with your Killingsworth
Professional. Be sure you understand your warranty and ask
any questions you may have pertaining to your coverage.
What happens if I do not renew my termite agreement?
Your home will no longer be covered for termites and Killingsworth
is no longer responsible for continuing protection to your
home at the original renewal price. You may have a renewal
agreement that is far less expensive than the termite protection
you would be offered today. We recommend that you continue
to renew your agreement so that your home is inspected and
covered and you are protected by the high cost of having
your home retreated.
