What You Should Expect from a Professional Termite Inspection | San Joaquin Pest ControlGetting a professional termite inspection is an important part of properly caring for your home. Termites are a serious threat because they can cause extensive damage that leads to expensive repairs. If you are ready to get your first termite inspection it is important to know what to expect. You may need to do some prep work, so the inspector has easy access to all areas. Once the inspection is complete you will receive a thorough report to help you decide on your next step. A termite inspection will not require a lot of work on your part, but it can save you a lot of trouble in the future.

Expect to locate and clear access points

The main prep that you will need to do before a termite inspection is to ensure that your crawl spaces, attic, and perimeter of your house are accessible. In homes that are built on pier and beam, the inspector will examine the crawl space. The access to this space can be located in various spots throughout the interior or exterior of your home. If you do know where the access is to your crawl space, then start by locating it and then make sure there is nothing standing in the way. If there are boxes or clutter blocking the crawl space access the inspector will not be able to fully examine the area. The same goes for the access to your attic. Locate the door and make sure items are moved out of the way to provide easy access. The inspector will also look around the perimeter of your home. Ensure that gates are unlocked and pets are secured so the inspector can get to every part of your home.

Expect a thorough examination of all areas of your house

You can expect a thorough examination of all areas of your house. The inspector will look under your house in the crawl space and above your house in the attic. In addition, the inspector will walk around the exterior of the property and examine any wood that is present as well as the foundation. You can also expect the inspector to come inside and check for signs of termite activity. Termites can potentially permeate any area of your home that contains wood so the inspector will examine all those areas.

Expect a termite inspection report

Once the inspection is complete, you will receive an inspection report. The report will include information on the current condition of your home as well as any signs of previous termite activity. If an active termite infestation is discovered the report will include treatment recommendations. If there are no signs of termite activity the report will include recommendations for keeping your home protected going forward.
