A proper termite and WDO inspection consists of several steps, a visual examination of the exterior and interior of the home but not limited to;
- Main Level
An inspection of the exterior of the home, looking for signs of termite activity as well as conditions conducive to termite and other WDO infestations (such as wood that is too close to the ground, dead tree stumps by the house, improper grading, leaky gutters or downspouts, or tree branches overhanging or touching the home).
The inspector will also look for evidence of infestation by other wood-destroying insects. A detailed written summary of the inspection results will be provided to you using a standardized WDO Inspection Form developed NACHI, to clarify the inspection findings. When evidence of a past or present WDO infestation, damage due to an infestation, or conditions conducive to infestation are found, the inspector will usually attach his or her remediation recommendations and/or an estimate for treatment.
