There are 3 main types of termite treatments that can be performed on a property. Full, partial and spot treatment.
#1 Full Treatment: The Property owner can only receive a “full treatment” before the property is built. Proper and effective preconstruction treatment for subterranean termite prevention requires the establishment of complete vertical and horizontal approved physical or chemical barriers between wood in the structure and the termite colonies in the soil or a “horizontal chemical barrier” that is created by using a low pressure spray after the final grading is complete and prior to pouring the slab, footings. A partial or spot treatment is anything less than the full treatment as described above. Therefore, a treatment done to an existing home will always be a partial or spot treatment.
# 2 Partial Treatment: This treatment technique allows a wide variety of treatment strategies but is more involved than a spot treatment. Example: Treatment of some or all of the perimeter, bath traps, expansion joints, stress cracks. Pier and Beam: Generally defined as the treatment of the outer perimeter including porches, patios and treatment of the attached garage. In the crawl space, treatment would include any soil to structure contacts as well as removal of any wood debris on the ground. Slab construction: Generally defined as treatment of the perimeter and all known slab penetrations as well as any known expansion joints or stress cracks. After the treatment is complete you will have a one year service agreement, with the option to renew it annually.
# 3 Spot Treatment: Is any treatment which concerns a limited defined area less than ten (10) linear or square feet that is intended to protect a specific location or “spot.” Often there are adjacent areas susceptible to termite infestations which are not treated. There is no service agreement on a spot treatment.
Termite treatments are based off linear and square feet. This means not all homes are priced the same. If termites are found on your property Affordable Termite & Pest Control LLC will give you a free estimate on what it would cost to treat your home and or business.
