Hello, fellow yogis! I’m writing this from the floor of my bedroom, drinking tea and unwinding after an eventful few weeks.

As many of you know, I’ve opened up another Yoga gym here in beautiful southern California, intent on spreading the message of peace and mindfulness that is so needed in the world today. It’s been a long and harrowing process, but we’ve finally finished all the necessary repairs and refurbishment to the building so we can open our doors in the coming weeks!

One of the major issues that came up was unfortunately one that I’m really familiar with, as any long-time reader can tell you: termites! Yes, the building had an isolated infestation in some of the back rooms that was missed during our initial inspections.

By now I’ve become somewhat of an expert on the process of termite removal, so there wasn’t as much panic as there was a sigh, a rolling of the eyes, and the beginning of my usual search for extermination companies nearby. Luckily, our old friends Grand Oaks Termite Control serviced the area, so we got in contact with them.

Old readers will remember Grand Oaks as the company that’s helped me and my first gym for quite a while. Their loyal following of clientele is what initially attracted me to them, as evidenced by these Yelp reviews:

“I highly recommended Grand Oaks Termite Control.  I had an unusual situation where there were many areas of my wood paneling and roof that were affected by termites and wood rot. I have a decorative tree growing through the front part of my home which makes it very difficult to treat without damaging the tree. When Jason came for the preliminary inspection, he knew exactly how to effectively treat my home without harming my favorite tree. His estimate was very reasonable and his communication was top notch. He kept me appraised of all the curve balls and never stuck me with any unexpected cost. I was very impressed with the workmanship of his teammate Gary who took care of all the woodwork, a true craftsman.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Grand Oaks without any hesitation. ”

“I am in awe of Grand Oaks Termite Control. Justin and Gary came out and inspected my home and they were punctual, polite and very knowledgeable. I was so worried about my home being infested with termites, but Justin put my mind at ease. He determined that I had an isolated infestation in one room of my home and that there was no need to be tented. He gave me a fair quote and treatment of the room literally took maybe an hour. He explained that the process would not harm my family or cat and termites and eggs will not survive after the treatment. He and Gary came out a week later for the water damage of the affected area. My husband and I are so pleased and grateful we chose this company. Gary did an impeccable job of the repairs that took about 6-7 hours and you can’t even tell I had any termites or water damage. They are both so pleasant and polite and will highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks guys for an outstanding and affordable job. ”

Termites are nothing new for either me or Grand Oaks, but they do have a refreshing take on what it means to provide excellent service. If you require termite control in La Verne or the surrounding areas, do yourself a favor and call Grand Oaks; they’re seriously the best!
