I am considering purchasing Termidor, however, I was wondering about a warranty?
It says that the treatment will last 10 years. What if there is activity within that 10 year period? Does DoMyOwnPestControl.com guarantee the product? Do I need to retreat every year or just have an inspection done?
There is no warranty offered with Termidor. That is one benefit of having a company treat your home is they do provide a warranty. However, no termite treatment can 100% guarantee that you won't have termites because termites can enter your home in places that you cannot treat, like underneath a slab, through a plumbing pipe, or through an area you cannot get the treatment to because it is covered or inaccessible. After your home is built, it is impossible to get to every entry point. Also, Termidor does not guarantee you won't have termites for 10 years. The 10 year applies to the areas that you apply Termidor, it is guaranteed to stay where you put it and protect and last for 10 years. But there are always areas you cannot get to which is why you should continue to have a professional company come out every couple of years to do a professional inspection to make sure you have no areas of activity. Most companies will do free inspections. You do not need to re-treat the whole house for 10 years. Another way to look at it is that when you have a company perform a termite treatment and they give you a 10 year warranty, you are paying them usually $150 or more per year to keep that warranty. If Termidor treatments insured you never got termites for 10 years, then people would have no reason to continue to pay companies year after year to keep their warranty. One other point is that most of our customers end up treating better and more thoroughly than most companies because the truth of the matter is that no one will take the time to care about your own house as much as you will. And on top of all that you usually are saving a ton of money.
