Darkened Wood

One of the most common signs of termite damage is darkened wood. Termite feces, called “frass,” can stain your wood a black or brown color. Termite tunnels and galleries can also cause wood to sag, warp, or crack. Termite tunnels are grey and lackluster, unlike the rest of the surrounding wood. If you notice any darkened wood in your home, give us a call for an inspection.

Blistered Laminate Flooring

Termites may cause laminate flooring to blister if it covers a wood sub-surface. Because the termites will only consume the wood and not the laminate, they can dig tunnels beneath laminate flooring and leave an empty space that squeaks when you walk on it.

Bending or Breaking Wood Structures

If your wood is severely damaged by termites, it may break or bend entirely. Termites can cause severe structural damage to a house since they eat enough wood to endanger the structure. If you notice any unusual bending or breaking in your wood, it’s time to call Arizona Termite Specialists for an inspection.

Sagging Floors

If you feel your floorboards are sagging or becoming more flexible than they should when you walk on them, termites may be tunneling through your floor joists. Termite tunnels can cause wooden joists to sag, especially more severely during heavy rains. Termite damage is dangerous since it can compromise the foundation of your home.
