As a homeowner, you want to take all the necessary steps to keep your home safe from pests. This includes cleaning up clutter and messes, fixing holes and cracks that can allow something to get inside and dutifully keeping an eye out for any signs of an infestation.
These are all important and helpful steps, but sometimes even this isn’t enough. Infestations can happen, and you need to know as soon as possible to get ahead of it. This is why you need to have regularly scheduled pest inspections.
Pest Inspections Are Thorough
You might wonder why a professional inspection is necessary if you’re already doing your part. The simple fact is that professionals like the ones at Abarb Pest Services know what to look for. While some of the signs are obvious and easy to spot, some are not and require a trained eye.
In addition to being able to spot visual signs, our technicians also have the latest equipment to help make sure your home is pest-free. And if it’s not, we also have the tools needed to combat the infestation.
So, how often should you have a professional pest inspection? The answer to this is not quite as straight-forwad as you might hope.
As a general rule, it’s recommended that you have your home inspected every twelve months. For many people and places, this should be enough. However, what if you live in a place that is more prone to certain types of infestations? There are certain regions where pests such as termites are more common, and the risk of infestation from these pests is much higher. In places like it might be a good idea to get schedule an inspection more frequently, like every six months or so.
What Happens if You Don’t?
If you choose not to have your home inspected, then quite frankly you are putting your largest investment in serious jeopardy. The potential damages from termites, rats or some other pest are high enough that it isn’t worth the risk at all.
