Termites can cause expensive problems for your business. They can damage the structural wood of your building around-the-clock. If termite activity is allowed to continue for long, it can lead to secondary damage in other areas of the property. In order to avoid paying for expensive repairs you need to take steps to keep your business protected from the threat of termites. There are three main ways that you can protect your business from the threat of termites: stay on top of building maintenance, get periodic termite inspections, and set up regularly scheduled termite treatment.
Stay on top of building maintenance
Proper building maintenance is an important part of protecting your business from the threat of termites. Subterranean termites are attracted to properties that provide easy access to moisture rich soil. If there are any water issues around your building it can lead to a buildup of water in the soil. This can make it very attractive to termites. Staying on top of the maintenance for your building can help reduce your chances of getting a termite infestation. If there are any leaks or issues with drainage around your building, deal with those right away.
Get periodic termite inspections
Periodic termite inspections can help you discover termite activity before significant damage can occur. A professional inspection will provide you with information about the current condition of your building in relation to termites. Finding termite activity early on will allow you to take the appropriate action to eliminate them quickly. You and your termite pro can work together to determine the appropriate timing of your periodic termite inspections.
Set up regularly scheduled termite treatment
Regularly scheduled termite treatment is the most effective way to get continuous protection against the threat of termites. Your termite pro may recommend a termite baiting system, termiticide spot treatment, or a combination of both to keep your business protected. Termites are persistent and will continue to try and infest your business. In order to truly stay protected from the threat of termites you must take proactive and continuous action against them. The appropriate timing for regularly scheduled termite treatment will depend on a number of factors including the size, age, and building material of your business as well as previous termite activity.
It is possible to keep your business protected from the threat of termites if you are committed to the process. Fortunately, being committed to the process does not meant that you have to spend a lot of time on termite prevention. As long as you stay on top of the building maintenance all of the other termite prevention efforts can be left in the hands of your termite professional.
