Ways Termites Can Impact Commercial Facilities


Your business is the product of a lot of hard work and dedication. There are many obstacles for businesses, especially the difficulties of maintaining facilities. One danger you face as a business owner is the possibility of a pest invasion. Some pests are mostly a nuisance, but others can cause serious damage. Termites are pests that can affect any company, at any time of year and they are an often-forgotten pest because they remain hidden. Here are three things that you should know about termites in commercial facilities.

Property Damage

The first thing you need to know about termites is that they can cause a lot of damage. Subterranean termites nest outdoors, underground. They enter buildings in search of food which, unfortunately for business owners, is wood. Termites are especially attracted to soft wet wood, which is easiest to feed on. Termites can eat through the wooden structures of a facility, causing problems that are difficult to repair. A severe termite infestation can cause ceilings to dip or floors to bulge. They can even make it so that doors and windows stick. Termites don’t just destroy the inside of your building, though. They can also be found chewing away at the inside of cabinets, furniture, or other wood around your facilities. For some businesses, this can be catastrophic.

Loss of Time and Money

Finally, the damage from a termite infestation can result in loss of money and time. Some companies and homeowners attempt to get rid of termites on their own. Though there are some do-it-yourself suggestions, these are often ineffective. You have much more important things to worry about in your company. Don’t waste time trying to find a DIY solution. Instead, the best way to fight termites is to fight proactively. Instead of waiting until termites have already come into your commercial facility, fight back before they get inside.

Image Is Everything

Because termites are considered silent destroyers, customers are not likely to ever see an infestation. They will, however, see the damage an infestation has caused. The overall appearance of your commercial building will usually sway consumers to either visit your business or not. If your building is visually unappealing, customers are likely to avoid your business.
