Faulty Workmanship

 

One of the biggest contributors to an infestation in Plano, TX is troubling construction practices. Even errors which you think are minor or insignificant are all it takes for these insects to eat their way inside your home.

 

Some of the constructions faults that cause pest infestations and must be given full attention are the following:

 

  • Drainage Issues:  Drainage issues, such as insufficiently extended eaves or downspouts that are too short to accommodate the water from the foundation of your home, are problems that can lead to infestation. When the moisture created, infestation begins. Moisture is where these bugs love to thrive on. If there are faults in the grading of your landscape, the drainage can be insufficient, thus, increasing the possibility of infestation.
  • Contact between Earth and Wood: Wooden structural elements should have the proper treatment and covers when it must meet earth or soil foundations, otherwise neglect will lead to a freeway of termites from outside to your house and an infestation develops.
  • Leftover Building Materials: Building or construction materials, especially wood, that are backfilled can serve as source of cellulose, which subterranean bugs feed on. Leaving grade stakes, form boards and spacers in slabs aren’t a good idea, either, if you are worried about these termites infecting your area. Wood that is being left over inside CMUs or masonry units can also serve as breeding grounds for these termites.
  • Landscaping: Sufficient care practice must be applied to every landscaping job in Plano, TX. However, the lack thereof does not necessarily result in faulty landscaping jobs, where construction in Plano, TX is concerned. Still, it is important to understand that issues on infestation can start with poorly graded landscaping because that can cause a lot of gravel to pool right into your home’s foundation. This consequently produces moisture, and these termites, as we know, just love moisture.

 

Keeping moisture away from the foundation and structure of the house, as well as prevention of untreated contact points of soil and wooden parts of the house should be observed to prevent the settlement of termites in your house. One is to prevent wood to get in contact with the soil as much as possible and two, have a good drainage system so the soil is left dry. This helps prevent incidents in Plano, TX that can cause moisture, because once moisture sets in, it will not be long before bugs will invade your home.
