Benefits of a Termite Inspection and Protection Plan

One of the most significant pest infestations could be taken care of with a proactive termite inspection. If you are concerned about termites, or live in an area that is prone to termites, like the greater Washington DC area, having a termite inspection and protection plan would be extremely beneficial.

There are several advantages of purchasing a termite inspection and protection plan.

Termite Inspection

The most important part of a termite inspection and protection plan is that it will include regular inspections. A termite infestation will often start small, but could quickly grow into something more significant. If you have regular inspections completed, you could end up catching a termite problem before it grows into something too significant. Ultimately, this could save you a lot of frustration and repair costs.

Termite Treatment

If your home is affected by termites, the Capitol Pest termite inspection and protection plan will also include the treatment of the infestation.  The termite inspector will be able to come to your home and properly determine the best course of action for ridding your home of the infestation.  They will be able to do this in the safest and most convenient manner possible.  The company will then complete a follow-up visit to your property to ensure the infestation was properly taken care of.


Termite damage has been estimated to cost billions of dollars of damage a year to homes. The worst part is, unless you are proactive with your termite inspection and protection plan, you usually don’t know they’re eating your home until it’s too late, leaving you to wonder—does homeowners insurance cover termite damage?

If the termite infestation has caused more significant repairs, the cost of repairs will probably not be covered under insurance.  The inspection service will be able to work with you and your insurance company to provide any necessary paperwork to have the claim quickly approved if it is covered, but the best way to prevent costly repairs is with the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System.
