Sixteen years. That’s how long you’ve lived in your home. A home you feel was made just for you and your family. Two precious children have been growing up within these walls. Walls that have witnessed the laughter of little boys at your son’s tenth birthday party; walls that watched your precious daughter learn to ride her new tricycle; walls that have surrounded the days of laughter and tears, learning and growing, work and rest. Walls!

Your children are older now, and it is time to do something about those walls. They need a facelift. A makeover! It’s time to make a fresh start in this home you have invested so much of your life in; a home you hope to stay in the rest of your years. But, as you dream of how you will transform this house into something better, and think of all the family gatherings that are yet to come, something horrifying happens.

Another scenario: You’ve spent months searching for a house for your growing family, and now you’ve finally found just the right one. It is perfect. A backyard that is big enough, but not too big. A spacious back deck. Nice kitchen and living room, two bathrooms, just the right number of bedrooms, space for an office, and even a red maple tree growing in the front yard, just like you wanted. The loan is approved, the papers are signed, and you spend a week getting everything settled, but just as you are putting on the finishing touches and hanging pictures in the living room, you make a disturbing discovery. Not just disturbing. Devastating!

The discovery.

Termites. Whether you have spent decades inside your home building memories or have just moved in, a termite infestation can be devastating. Imagine pulling off the wallpaper in your living room, a patch of plaster falls away, and you see a mass of wiggling termites through the hole. Imagine pounding a nail into the wall to hang that last picture in your new living room and having the same thing happen. Imagine having a termite inspection and finding out that you not only have termites in that one wall, but in all of your walls. At worst, the damage is so bad that the house is no longer structurally sound and will have to be torn down. At best, it is going to cost you thousands of dollars to have the bugs exterminated. Imagine.

It could have been prevented.

A home is a big investment; probably the biggest investment any of us will ever make. And it is more than just wood and nails; it is memories. If you want to protect these memories, and your wallet, you might want to think about getting a termite inspection before it is too late. If you are looking to buy a new home, make sure there is a termite inspection done before you sign on the dotted line. If you’ve lived in your home awhile, it is a good idea to call in a pest control company to come do a check for termites before the damage is irreparable.
