Organic Termite Control Is A Breath Of Fresh Air

When people exclaim that it’s time to “wake up and smell the coffee”, that often means blunt confrontation with reality is called for. It’s a shame that the beloved aroma of coffee is at the brunt of the expression. The waking and smelling is merely a metaphor that represents coming into a sudden awareness of what is apparent but not immediately visible. 

However, sometimes reality has a literal and not figurative smell. There are plenty of ways in which a small mistake can leave you in a smelly situation. If you have allergies or a sensitive nose, you may be more bothered than most by the smell of something that isn’t quite right. You may even be able to perceive the issue before most people do. There are several potential causes for unwanted odor. It’s time to channel your inner Sherlock Holmes and get to the bottom of the matter.

One of the quickest ways for bacteria to develop in the home is from expired or unkept food. The eggs and bacon you had for breakfast in your bedroom before rushing into a remote Zoom meeting — did you remember to put the dishes in the sink afterward? That Friday night takeout you ordered to eat while rewatching Friends in the living room after a stressful week at work — did you remember to toss it out before passing out on the couch? 

With that in mind, if you feel like you have thoroughly swept, mopped, and scrubbed every inch of your home only to still be left with a lingering smell, your efforts aren’t to be discredited. In fact, it may be your cleaning products that are the source of the offputting scent. Certain cleaning and personal care products can be so problematic that air pollution controls have been implemented to reduce the “toxic chemical burdens” created by sources of volatile compounds in our homes, including aerosols and liquids. 

Pests are unwanted and unwelcome visitors — and they stink. A musty, mold smell akin to mildew or damp leaves is one of the telltale signs of a termite infestation. Termites cause billions of dollars of damage in homes each year across the United States due to their consumption of cellulose in wood. They’ll leave the wood in your home warped and hollowed. Termites know how to move in stealth, making them difficult to detect while invading homes. Termite removal may involve traditional or chemical solutions, for which additional information can be found here. If the infestation is untreated, termites can cause severe structural damage to your home. This is both dangerous and financially costly. If the infestation is improperly treated, the colony may partially die with survivors returning and reproducing with a vengeance.

Furthermore, termites love moisture. Water damage and termite infestations are often mistaken for one another, however, the presence of water damage may actually attract termites. Water-damaged lumber is especially attractive to termites. If you notice disfiguring or dampness in the walls, floors, windows, or doors, call a termite exterminator as soon as possible for a professional inspection.
