Termite damage can, in severe cases and when left untreated over a long period of time, cause your property to become structurally unstable. In Malaysia, as well as all over the world, termite infestation is one of the most devastating problems faced by many property owners. These silent destroyers leave no mark of presence until the damage is done and decimates properties within 3 months of entry. This can be either to external structures or the structure of the building itself. The worse bite would be to your assets as most building insurance policies do not cover termite damage. Many property owners worry about fire or flood, but termite damage is actually much more common.
Subterranean termites, the most destructive timber pest in the world, build their colonies in the soil and usually work their way above ground to reach wood or any other cellulose source. In search for food, subterranean termites will forage into homes from below the ground level right up to the highest point of the roof thrust. Termite damage can become significant on wooden door frames, kitchen cabinets, staircase and timber flooring as well.
Termite control would be most effective if it is carried out by experienced and professionally trained technicians who understand the biology and living/feeding habits of termites, on top of thorough observation of the building’s construction, soil characteristics and favourable conditions for infestation. Your property is an important investment which you would want to protect and maintain.
