So what are the risks of skipping the details and avoiding termite and pest control for your investment properties? Here are the primary issues you should consider.
You’ll Miss The Signs
The most obvious concern is that when you are away from the property, as you would be with an investment property, you are less likely to see the obvious signs of termite damage. So whether this property is a summer home that is left vacant most of the year or a rental home with renters who don’t pay attention to the same details that you would, it’s really important for your peace of mind to know that there is a professional visiting in the home regularly to ensure that it is still free of termites.
Humidity Is Ideal For Pests
A specific concern with homes or other structures that are not occupied all year long is that spaces that go without conditioned air become very attractive environments for termites. As we know, termites like warm damp places and summers in Florida are the ideal place to find such an environment. If your vacation rental is left on occupied and the air-conditioning turned off you may be accidentally creating a perfect habitat for on welcomed pests.
