Laminate Flooring Termite Damage
Termites can damage the underlying flooring of laminate. Damage caused to laminate flooring by termite infestations can appear similar to typical water damage. Laminate will blister and sag in affected areas. If inspected more closely, a hollow network of tunnels will be discovered beneath buckled areas. Termites have even been known to chew through the laminate and create small holes. In order to address damage done to laminate flooring, it is often necessary to rip up old laminate and lay new flooring.
To prevent these costly procedures, it’s advised that homeowners schedule annual termite inspections with their local pest control experts to develop a solution specifically designed for their home.
