Building Pest Control Into Your New Home

Construction & Contractors Blog

Pest control can be an issue, even in new homes. Many homeowners are choosing to build a pest control system directly in their homes in order to prepare for future pests. Here's what you need to know about an installed pest control system.

Reasons to Pre-Install Pest Control

There are a few reasons to build pest control systems into your home. First of all, it can be very effective and quick to treat a pest control problem. Time is of the essence when pests do invade, since your comfort depends on removing pests quickly. Many homeowners choose to install pest control infrastructure ahead of time so that they can deal with pests quickly, instead of setting up new infrastructure every time a pest problem happens.

Built-in pest control systems also allow you to easily schedule pest maintenance without a lot of setup; by applying a regular pest control solution, you can stop bugs before they ever set up camp in your house. The systems can be designed to prevent cockroaches and other insects from nesting in your home by applying a regular pesticide to make your home uninviting. This type of treatment can be less invasive than the traditional pest control service, since the technicians don't even need to come inside your house; they simply use an outdoor valve to spray the needed chemicals.

Example of a Pest Control System

Your walls are one area of the home that's vulnerable to pests; bugs can form a home in the walls and breed out of sight. It can be difficult for your pest control team to infiltrate a wall that's already built, but a pre-installed wall pest control system makes it easy for them to distribute pest control sprays throughout the walls.

Basically, the team will install tubes that run throughout the walls and connect to an outside spigot. When you need to apply a pest control solution, the team simply sprays into the spigot, which distributes the spray throughout the pipes and into the walls of your house through small holes. You can also use this system to periodically spray inside of your walls, even if you don't detect any pests.

How to Get Started

If you want to install a pest control system in your new construction project, you should begin talking with a pest control team early on in the design process. The piping is small, but it could affect your building designer's plans for insulation, wall thickness, and the placement of plumbing pipes and electric wires. Working as a team, your construction group and pest control technician can create an installation schedule that works for the building project.

A Study Of Wood Flooring Materials, Tools, and Techniques

Hello, I am Deborah Stillen. My passion for hardwood flooring began at a hotel on my first vacation as an adult. The gorgeous hotel flooring was made of a mix of mahogany, walnut, and teak materials that looked exotic to my eyes. Before that, I had only lived in places with wall-to-wall carpet. Upon coming home, I began to devise a way to cover my floors in wood materials. I became an expert on all of the wood flooring options available on the market today. I also studied different installation techniques and the tools used to create amazing patterns with the wood. My house now features a fine mix of bamboo and recycled wood flooring to create a layout I adore. I hope you can use the information on this site to bring wood floors to your home. Please visit often and learn all you can about wood flooring.
