Termites Can Dangerously Damage the Structural Integrity of Your Home

People often ignore the real danger that termites can create in their home. As a series of videos by a Chicago-area home inspector illustrated, this can be a major mistake. He found a home that was absolutely infested with these pests.

The inspector was checking out the basement of the home when he noticed a locked room. Opening it up, he immediately saw that the wood was heavily tunneled by termites, creating unrepairable levels of dangerous structural damage.

In fact, he found that the structural beam of the building had been completely eaten. This created a highly dangerous situation that put the lives of the homeowners and anyone who visited it at a severe risk.

The inspector shared similar home devastation stories that make it easy to ask: just how in the world do termites do so much damage?

There are a few key factors. First of all, termites breed at incredible rates. The queen is capable of producing thousands of workers, drones, and soldiers every year.

Combine that with the fact that termites prefer living in dark, out-of-the-way places and you have a recipe for serious home integrity disaster. By the time you notice termites in your living area, your home and its foundation may literally be crawling with these pests.

That’s why you have to call a pest control specialist if you think your home is infested with termites. They can come in, assess the situation, and help create a solution that is right for you and your home’s needs.
