What We Inspect During Your Termite Inspection?
Here’s what you may want to know concerning the process of most home termite inspections that are carried out by pest control professionals.
The inspector will look for visible signs of a termite infestation in:
- Interior areas of your home
- Exterior areas of your home
- Attic inspection
- Basement inspection
- Crawl space inspection
After this has been completed, our team will inspect the exterior, especially areas that are dark and damp, as these spots are much more prone to termite problems.
What’s a WDI Inspection?
Wood Destroying Insects (WDI) are more commonly known as “Termites”. Termites are insects, which mostly feed on dead plant matter like woodchips, decayed wood (logs), leaf litter, and soil. They’re drawn inside properties by moisture, wood in contact with house foundations, and cracks in building exteriors. Different combinations of these factors attract different species. Additionally, geographic location plays a role in how likely homeowners are to deal with infestations.
A termite inspection is usually required in order to secure funding to purchase a home, especially older ones. The risk of termite damage to wooden structures is higher for older houses; that is why older premises are more in need of inspections. But they are always a good idea whether it’s required or not. Termite inspections are also vital for any new home because termite damage or infestation may not be readily apparent to the untrained eye. Even though termites can do plenty of damage in a short period of time, the damage to the foundation of your home may not present itself right away.
