When you call Atlanta Landscape and Fertilization for termite inspection and treatment you might be wondering what to expect as to how things will go. Here is a basic breakdown of what the initial termite control appointment will look like:
1) Questions - Our technician will, after arriving on time, ask you a series of questions about your home to help them understand what your concerns are and answer any questions you might have about our termite treatment service. 2) Inspection - After speaking with you our expert will inspect your home for signs of termite activity and infestation by making a complete tour of your home, including any sub spaces like basements, attics, and crawl spaces. This takes about an hour to complete. 3) Diagnosis - If our technician finds evidence of termite activity within your property they will discuss your treatment options and explain the way that we will deal with the problem, including pricing and applicable warranties.
If our technician discovers evidence of wood damage caused by termites but finds no signs of current activity we will recommend treatment to stop a possible recurrence of an infestation down the road.
