Scottsdale Termite Professionals

The best way to deal with termites is to try and prevent costly repairs before they happen. Early detection by a pest control specialist, trained to look for damage, can save homeowners future expenses and hassles. Since termites, also known as the “silent destroyer,” can go undetected for so long, infestations can occur without an owner even being aware of it. So it’s wise to consider an annual termite inspection it might just save you in the end. Additionally, a pest control is trained to look for damage everywhere – like in laminate floors and ceilings.

Signs for Termite Damage to Laminate Floors and Ceilings

Laminate Floor Damage

It’s important to remember that termite infestations can cause damage to flooring under laminate. Termites can chew through the laminate. The damage looks similar to water damage – the laminate blisters and sags. Upon closer inspection you discover networks of tunnels beneath buckled areas. To address the damage supporting the laminate, you’ll most likely need to rip up the laminate as well.

Termite Damage

Termites love the cellulose, organic materials that make up the wood in your ceilings. Damage done to the wooden parts of your ceiling also can resemble light water damage – buckling and sagging. The type of repair necessary for ceiling damage is dependent on the level of the termite infestation, as well as the materials your ceiling is made of.

Termite Control

A termite control specialist will be able to assess damage, but they also might need to call in a structural engineer if there is extensive damage. A trained inspector will be able to asses how bad the damage is and if it’s necessary to bring in an engineer. A yearly inspection can help ensure that infestations do not reach this crucial point.
