Having a weakened immune system invites worse sickness, and when your home has insect damage it opens the door for much worse problems.
The ecosystem of the Central Coast is home to a diverse collection of insects with diverse plans for how they will destroy your home. Each year thousands of homes are attacked by termites, ants, and roaches. Oftentimes this damage is ignored, but this only lets the Four Horsemen of Home Health Apocalypse attack your home.
One of the reasons why insect damage is so bad for your home is that it often invites other types of damage. When insects bore into your home and make holes in your home’s paint, they expose the interior wood to the elements.
If you leave this damage unchecked it can lead to dry rot, water damage, and more insect problems. Similar to how a bad smoking habit weakens your immune system against diseases, insect damage weakens your home’s defenses against other types of damage.
Not only can insect damage weaken your home’s resistance against other types of damage, but insect damage can seriously undermine the safety of your home. Damage from termites can lead to unstable supports, which leads to collapsing homes, which leads to expensive bills from contractors or worse case – hospitals!
Termites aren’t the only insect trying to bug you though, and many homeowners neglect the many other foes attacking your home. If you think you can see insect damage on your home don’t brush it off.
Nobody wants a home that looks like Swiss cheese, and for many homeowners, cosmetic damage is the most obvious and seemingly important danger that insect damage can cause. Not only does insect damage make your home unsafe, but it makes it look unsafe.
No homeowner wants their guests to feel unsafe or uncomfortable because of a damaged home, and insect damage is especially undesirable because it implies poor maintenance. Unless you enjoy the feng shui that insect damage can bring to your home, make sure to intervene before the damage gets worse.
