Termite Inspections in Covington, LA

From Fischer Environmental Services

CovingtonThe big problem with termites is that they can cause an incredible amount of damage to a home before the homeowner is even aware of their presence. For the average person, termites can be very difficult to detect. In fact, much of the time the first and only tip-off is extensive wood damage – termites burrow into the wood and then eat their way out, so the destruction is often missed until it is too late, and the homeowner incurs horrendous expenses.

If you think you might have termites in your home, you should get in touch with Fischer Environmental – we’ve been doing termite inspections in Covington homes for more than 60 years.

Do I Need a Termite Inspection?

Obviously, if you’ve noticed damaged wood in your home, you should have a termite inspection. Other indicators that termites could be present include little wings dropped near light sources – when termites are swarming, they are winged. They lose the wings when the swarming stage is over. You might also see nests in trees outside, or mud tunnels on non-wood areas of your house.

Since it takes so little time for the damage to become severe, you should act as quickly as possible to arrange for a professional home inspection. Fischer Environmental brings just the expertise you need to termite inspections in Covington homes.

What Happens During a Termite Inspection?

With some companies, not much happens. A representative may come to your house, take a look around, and offer an opinion as to whether or not you have termites. Some companies charge for the services.

At Fischer Environmental, we know that a mere visual inspection isn’t enough. Termite inspections should begin with the inspector looking underneath the surface using an infrared scanner. The scanner will show areas in insulation, walls, etc. that have been weakened. Then, to determine the cause of the weakness, the inspector will look even deeper using a fiber optic scope.

Since termites thrive in moist environments, a moisture meter might also be used. This identifies how much moisture is present in walls and around doors and windows.
