Termite DamageDid you know that our home inspectors at Bryan & Bryan Inspections find evidence of termite damage in one of every five Houston homes we inspect? That’s a lot of termites—and a lot of potential home damage. Termites are known for eating away at the wood in homes or burrowing tunnels. They often can leave behind a distinct mildew scent, and what’s worse, they can cause deep structural damage to a house. Bottom line: You don’t want termites in your Houston home, and if you find them, you want to do something about them fast.

What to Do

Your first step in making good real estate decisions is getting a termite inspection. Even if you don’t see signs of termite damage, you never know what might be happening beneath the home’s crawl space or hard-to-see areas. If you’re purchasing a home, we recommend that you get a termite inspection in addition to the home inspection. These inspections look for distinctly different things, so you want to make sure you cover all your bases. If you already own the home but suspect termites, get a termite inspection so you can begin remediation as soon as possible in order to protect your investment.

Who to Call

If you need a termite inspection for a new or existing home, we recommend our affiliate, Green Team Pest. The inspectors are licensed and insured termite professionals, and our team at Bryan & Bryan Inspections know they can get the job done right. In fact, if termites are found, they can even put together a termite protection plan to help you rid your home of these pests. Between our home inspections and Green Team’s termite inspections, we’ll work together to make sure you are armed with all the information you need to make solid real-estate decisions. Don’t trust your home to anyone else. We serve the Texas communities of Houston, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, Pearland, and Katy.
