We are very pleased with this short article that mentioned us in the Ventura County Star Sunday entitled, “Don’t Get Bit by the Termite Tent.” Thank you for writing this Brian Guevara! Here is what he had to say:
Nothing is as frustrating to a homebuyer as the wait to move into the home they have just purchased because of a “termite tent.”
Ventura County real estate agent Brian Guevara has found away to move the process along: ThermaPure Heat Method.
Guevara has become a proponent of the system that kills termites and other bugs with heat rather than chemicals.
“I like it because it’s faster,” said Guevara, a RE/MAX agent with the Ventura office. “It costs about the same, and it doesn’t leave behind any chemical residue.”
In the ThermaPureHeat method, the extermination company skips the tent. Instead, it brings a number of heaters into the home and heats the interior of the home up to 150 degrees. (Lipsticks, candles and other items that might melt are safely placed in the refrigerator.) The heat kills termites and other small insects. It also takes care of any mold and pathogens.
After the interior of the home is heated for several hours, the home is cooled with fans.
The entire process takes about 12 hours. Tenting the home and treating it with chemicals will keep the homeowner out of the home for several days.
“I like it because the homeowner is anxious.
They want to move in. This lets that happen much sooner,” said Guevara. “The costs are comparable. And there is no chemical residue in the house. The guarantee is comparable to the traditional methods so the customer has nothing to lose.”
ThermePureHeat is a method developed and patented by Ventura County businessman David Hedman. The ThermaPureHeat method heats the ambient air inside structures up to 150 degrees for several hours in order to eliminate termites and other bugs, as well as mold, mites, allergens and other airborne pathogens. In water damage restoration, the method sanitizes the structure while it dries.
