Free Terminix Termite Inspections

Email  Print Print  

Terminix.com is offering a free Termite Inspection. Since I just bought a house and already had a termite analysis as part of the inspection process, this doesn’t present much value for me. However, if you haven’t had a termite inspection (or at least an analysis) in a while, a free visit from Terminix is probably a good idea.



Are there any catches? I have no idea because I haven’t tried it but it sounds like it’s only an analysis – i.e. they look at things that might attract termites, tell-tale signs of termite infestation, but nothing official.

Details:

For your Free Terminix Termite Inspection, please fill out the form and a Terminix representative will contact you to arrange a complete termite analysis of your home. Free Termite Inspections are valid only through participating locations, and are not applicable for real estate closings.

Their motivation is probably to get your business if you do have a termite problem… if any of you have tried this or are going to try it, let me know how it turns out.

As for me, there’s a Commerce Bank grand opening today up here in Piscataway, NJ and I’m going to check it out (never been to a bank grand opening), I’ll report back what happens. (There are free funnel cakes!)

    How much do you want to bet they’ll find a variety of termite risk factors? Fortunately, they’ll have just the thing to fix it, and all for the low, low price of $XX.XX (probably per month). That being said, termite protection is a necessity in the South — not so much for protecting against the actual termites as for protecting your ability to re-sell your house. In my area, you have to have a ‘clean’ termite letter to transfer property. If you’re under contract for something along the lines of the Sentricon system, then odds are that the company you are dealing with guarantees that you’ll be in the clear, or they’ll fix the problem. We’re currently paying ~$60/quarter for our Sentricon contract.

    When I bought my house we had a termite inspection and there were a bunch of risk factors but no sign of termites. Anything from high mulch to soggy wood was a risk factor but unless there are signs of actual termites, you’re in the clear.

    As for whether Terminix will find risk? Probably… but then at least you know about it right?
