DULUTH, Ga.  - Allgood Pest Solutions is partnering with Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia (“Habitat-NCG”) to supply termite control to 15 new homes over the next year. The partnership exemplifies both organizations’ commitment to supporting local communities.

“Habitat for Humanity's goal to provide everyone with a decent and an affordable place to live is right in line with our core value to invest in the community,” said Allgood Owner Chuck Tindol. “The last thing a new home owner wants to worry about is damage to that home by termites. The Sentricon® Always Active solution we're supplying to these homes gives them peace of mind.”

Termites cause approximately $5 billion in property damage every year. Allgood will provide the fifteen homes with a free termite pre-treatment, installing Sentricon stations around the perimeter of each home. Sentricon is designed to take product back to the termite colony and eventually reach the queen, thereby killing off the entire colony.

Allgood will then provide a discounted termite bond which includes periodic follow-ups with a focus on customer care. The total value of the products, discounts and services being offered is over $750 per home in the first year.

Habitat-NCG is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (“HFHI”). Like other affiliates in the United States, Habitat-NCG is an independent, locally run organization that is responsible for its own funding, family selection and education, land acquisition and development, and home construction. Habitat-NCG serves North Fulton, Cherokee, Forsyth and Dawson counties. As of June 1, 2013, Habitat-NCG has built or renovated 239 homes, providing the benefits and blessings of homeownership to approximately 875 family members.

“We’re excited to have Allgood participate in providing termite control solutions to these Habitat-NCG families,” reported Russ Hayes, Chief Executive Officer of Habitat-NCG. “Thousands of man-hours and tens of thousands of dollars are put into the construction of these homes. It’s nice being able to protect that investment.”

Allgood plans to offer this solution to fifteen Habitat-NCG families per year over the next five years.
