Termites rarely gather and feast on the top of your hardwood flooring, where they would be easy to spot and kill. Instead, they prefer the softer subfloor, where they can feast in privacy. As a result, you may just end up with a termite infestation without realizing it.
How Do I Know If I Have Termites in my Hardwood Flooring?
- Is your hardwood flooring sagging?
- Are any of your boards coming loose?
- Do you see small tunnels if you look under one of your boards?
- Have your floorboards begun squeaking?
- Does your hardwood flooring produce a hollow sound when you knock on it?
While each of these signs could occur because of causes other than termites, if you suspect you have termites in your hardwood flooring and you see several of these signs, chances are high that you probably do.
What Should I Do If I Have Termites in My Hardwood Flooring?
If the damage is extensive, you may also need to call a contractor to make any needed assessments and repairs. Not only will a contractor replace your hardwood flooring, but he will make sure that all the needed structural floor supports are intact as well. Then, your home will be good as new once again!
