If you suspect a termite problem definitely get it checked out and taken care of. Left unchecked termites can completely destroy a house, don't wait until you fall through the floor to kill those little bastards

As the man said, call and get an inspection. They can eat you out of house and home- literally. And faster than you would think. Back in the day, there were soil treatments such as Chlordane that lasted about as long as Plutonium- but that was bad for the environment- so the products used today do not hurt the spotted owls and snail darters- but do not seem to last as long.
