Termites And The Structure Of Your Home

We are aware of the negative effects of termites on a home, but we don’t realize how severe the damages will be. Hence, it is important for you to be aware of the threat that termites pose to your home and the preventive actions you have to take in order to protect your home.

Termites can severely damage your home, costing you thousands of dollars in repairs, and threatening the safety of your home. Before you see the signs of termites, there may be already some significant damages to your structure.  

You can take preventive measures to reduce termites from colonizing near your home’s foundation.

  • Plants. If you see any plants, grass or bushes near the foundation in your home, it is important to know that it can draw termites. Hence, if you reduce them, there will be a good preventative area between the plants and your foundation.
  • Mulch. Mulch may attract termites and other pests. If there is mulch near the foundation of your home, the termites will look for moisture and food in your home. It is better to dispose the mulch as soon as possible to avoid termites. Moreover, don’t preserve wood near your house, and make your house free of moisture.
