One of the most widely spread doctrines about homes is that they have to degrade after several years due to standard human occupancy. This perception rings true for homes that have poor maintenance. The opposite is the truth because modern structures can display a lot of integrity when one applies the right checkup and repair service.
The maintenance of your home might hang on luck when you live in a multi-unit structure. Termites can eat through the thin darkness and drywall between townhouses to infest the entire building within weeks. It becomes tough to upkeep your cherished home when the colonies disperse through every corner of the complex.

Only half of all the residents may be aware of the termites in their homes. Others may refute claims of possible infestation because they are afraid of the stigma that insects are a sign of a dirty house.
The only way to stop the regeneration of termites is to inspect every unit. The process may involve using an electrical gun to sense out their colonies or studying entry points like wall crevices to find a possible route. We look for the following signs:
Mud tubes – These are the muddy flat shelters that house termites.
Damaged wood – Wood with visible holes and nests is the most common cause of termites. Termites can also be present in a door, window, cabinet, or floor that has a hollow sound.
Droppings – Termite droppings have the shape of pellets and are rampant near the wooden areas of your apartment
Damaged wall or floor – Termites find safety in moist, dark areas and may create passages on your floor, causing a raise of the floorboard. The insects may also resort to nesting in your walls to avoid sunlight. The result will be cracks or peels or the paint
The undisputable signs of termites are their presence near light fixtures and openings that let it light. Check all entries like windows and heating vents for evidence of full-body termites or wings
