There is nothing more exciting than a fresh new beginning. But sometimes, second chances are just as good as the first, if not better. Second chances represent hope, positivity, and resilience, giving us opportunities to triumph over challenges.
We are proud to share the story of how our team at Natural Science Exterminating treated and replaced termite-damaged wood, giving a San Clemente fourplex a second chance at a new beginning.
Comprehensive Termite Extermination, Repair, And Prevention
The revival of this apartment complex was comprehensive, from tent fumigation to carpentry wood replacement.
Natural Science Exterminating is known for prioritizing natural solutions and localized spot treatments, considering tent fumigation as the last resort. However, we also believe in being honest and realistic about the effectiveness of each type of solution. We do not believe in overpromising what a natural or local treatment can do when tenting is truly necessary.
In this case, we inspected the property and explained to our client that we believed the apartment complex required tenting, due to the severity of the infestation. Our client confidently authorized us to proceed, acknowledging that our work is licensed, bonded, and guaranteed.
With all living beings, food, and drugs removed from the premises, tent fumigation involves sealing the property and releasing a gaseous termiticide that enters every nook and cranny. The apartments were not occupied at the time, which provided the perfect window of opportunity for tent fumigation and carpentry wood replacement. We proceeded to thoroughly inspect the apartment complex to identify all layers of possible damage and dry rot, and to map carpentry around all plumbing and wiring connections before replacing the wood.

Pest Control Mistakes To Avoid
Despite living together in colonies, termites can easily enter into a home and wreak havoc to its structures while remaining undetectable and hardly noticeable to humans. Collapsing floors, walls, and ceilings may seem to suddenly appear when they have in fact been deteriorating rapidly. A key mistake to avoid is ignoring what may seem like a few surface quirks or oddities in your home: discarded wings and mud tubes, as well as wood that appears warped, sounds hollow, or feels moist. These signs must not be ignored and wished away. Do not put off calling an exterminator, as delaying inspection and treatment only gives termites more time to cause damage.
There are many ways to solve a potential pest problem and “prevention is the best cure.” Termites cause billions of dollars in damage to properties across the United States due to the fact that these critters directly feed on wood. Any property that has not been treated to prevent the wood from being a termite food source is at risk of being infested. Many properties are simply not treated during construction, which tends to be the only time the interior structures of a property are exposed to allow the wood to be directly treated by BoraCare. That said, a remodel that involves opening up walls, ceilings, and floors is an opportunity that should be seized to call a professional exterminator to Pest-Proof Your Remodel.
