Tips for New Home Owners

When buying a new home there are many steps you need to take before you can get the keys and move in. Before making the decision to purchase a home, it is important to be aware of any existing problems and fix them, as needed. Inspections that will be helpful in discovering any preexisting conditions in your potential new home include:

  • Termite Inspection: A termite inspection will ensure that there is no current termite activity. Should termite activity or termite damage be found, new or old, a pest management company will report the findings and provide recommendations to treat the structure for termites.
  • Radon Testing: Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas that often collects in basements and crawl spaces, because it is the closest to the soil or rock which is the source of the radon.Testing is the only way to know your home’s radon levels. If found, you may need to have a Radon Mitigation System installed, which pulls the Radon from the home.
  • Other testing: Once you are moved into your home, you may want to schedule routine pest control management to keep you home safe and free of unwanted visitors, such as insects or rodents.

If you are about to move into a new home, or have recently moved, call IPM today to schedule an appointment for any of the above services. We will ensure that your new home is safe and free from any harm.
