Shower Leaks can and do attract Termites to your Home

  • Termites flourish on moisture and once they become established, they are capable of doing dangerous damage to your home. Leaking showers produce perfect situations for nesting termites.
  • Termites are social insects which cause great damage to woody structures in the home such as frames, joists, bearers, studs, braces, even battens and rafters.
  • The removal of termites by pest controllers is a costly exercise. Once they are detected and eradication processes put into action, then comes the search for the damage they have caused.
  • The eradication itself can be very costly, as the exterminator has to dig under your house, concrete driveway, gardens or environs to find the nest.
  • If you have a water leak in your shower call “Detectaleak” today to find it for you.
