Spring is Here... Time For Spring Cleaning.

If you're a homeowner, then springtime is more than just about spring cleaning. 
you need to be on the lookout for tiny creatures that charge homeowners about $5 BILLION in property damage each year:

Termites.

The warm temps, rain and humidity is what lures the termites away from their nests and into your home. And most of the time, termite damage is NOT covered by your homeowners insurance.

This is when Truly Nolen comes into play. They will Truly make sure that your home is free from pests like these, and will be your best defense against these little critters.

Truly Nolen sent me a few items that relate to termites.

A small wrench to tighten pipes. Termites love moisture!
Number 2 pencil because mud tunnels are pencil-sized tubes that protrude from a house's exterior walls and serve as an environment of protection and moisture for termites.
Measuring tape so that way you can be sure that your home has the recommended 6 to 8 inches between ground level and porch steps, lattice work, door or window frames. (here in AZ I'm not sure many houses have that much clearance!!)
Small flashlight to help search for rippled or sunken traces behind wall coverings, which is an indication of a termite infestation.
And finally, a Truly Nolen stress ball to help keep me calm while preparing.

Thankfully, I live in an apartment, and I hope that I don't have to worry about this (even if I did, I wouldn't have to pay out of pocket). But these are important notes for homeowners. 

Since I am in Arizona, we haven't had much moisture yet this year, and our monsoon season doesn't start till around Fathers Day. 

If you're a homeowner, and you aren't sure if you have termites, I suggest you start looking around! 

Or you can call the Truly Nolen location near you!
