Termite Control and Prevention
Stop termites in their tracks.
Termites damage approximately 600,000 homes in the U.S. each year. Don’t let your home be one of them. These wood-destroying insects are experts at getting deep into the wooden structures of a home or office building, but they are no match for the professionals at Ford’s Hometown Services. Our trained, authorized technicians have more than 79 Years of combined experience eliminating termites and protecting your home from these ruthless invaders.
Unique, in-depth treatment programs.
Our expert team uses an advanced termite monitoring, baiting and liquid applications, and elimination technology that ensures your termites are found, treated, and eliminated quickly and effectively. The liquid application is an unbeatable defense against termites that will form a barrier in the soil around your home or commercial building that will last 12 years in the perfect conditions. This is a transferable affect material that is invisible to the termite and will be carried back to the colony “destroying the colony”. This treatment is all underground around the perimeter of the structure. We offer two different elimination and prevention systems that both carry warrantees and are transferable to new owners. Our inspections and treatments meet both the Veteran’s Administration (VA) and Federal Housing Administration (FHA) requirements. When you work with Ford’s Hometown Services, you can rest assured we will:
- Detail the cost of the work based on the size of your home or building and the extent of the problem before we start so there are no surprises
- Explain the various methods of treatment and how they’re applied, including outlining the specific materials and how they work
- Set-up a multiple-visit program to ensure your termite problem is eliminated
Unlike other exterminators who treat once and disappear, our team will return to your home or office to ensure the termite problem is eliminated for good.
