What are some signs that my home has termites? Look for mud tubes on your exterior walls or near the foundation of your home. You may also see visible damage to wood, damaged paint, or ‘frass’ which is discarded wood from termites that looks like a fine wood-based powder. When in doubt, call out the professionals at AZ Best Pest for a free termite inspection.
Will termite damage be covered by my homeowner’s insurance? In a vast majority of cases, it isn’t. Termite control is seen by many insurance companies as the sole responsibility of the homeowner. Seeing a home be destroyed by termites is heartbreaking, since that family could be responsible for 100% of the damages caused by these insects.
How much will termite treatment cost for my home? The answer depends on several variables, including the severity of the infestation, the type of termite, the type of foundation your home has, and your square footage. That’s why we offer a free, no-obligation inspection. After our technician thoroughly inspects for termites, we’ll provide you with an upfront estimate.
What if there are signs of termites after treatment? We offer a free annual termite checkup after treatment. If signs of a re-infestation are detected after a termite treatment, our experienced technicians will come back to your home and re-treat any areas that are allowing access to termites. With your warranty, this service will come at no additional cost to you.
Why are annual inspections necessary after treatment? Termites are stubborn and eager to re-infest areas they’ve been expelled from. They can cause a large amount of damage in a short time, so it’s important for one of our technicians to come back to your home at least annually to inspect for any new signs of infestation. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Why do I need to get a home inspected before I buy? Homes can have significant termite problems, and you may not be able to tell by just looking at it during your walkthrough. Buying a home in Phoenix or Casa Grande without a termite inspection is taking a major risk, and the cost of our inspections is so low compared to the total cost of the home.
