Understanding Home Inspections: Evaluating Termite and Pest Issues

Today, we delve into an important aspect of home inspections: the detection and evaluation of wood-destroying organisms (WDOs) such as termites, pests, and rodents. Join us as we explore a recent inspection conducted by Ashi-Certified inspector Joe M. highlighting the significance of thorough evaluations.

Assessing a 1993 Home

During a recent inspection of a home built in 1993, Joe encountered concerning signs of wood-destroying organism activity, particularly in the garage area. This space often becomes a focal point due to its susceptibility to moisture and exterior elements. Visible damage to wooden structures, such as beams or support columns, indicated potential infestations that required detailed assessment.

Importance of Termite and Pest Evaluations

Termite, pest, and rodent evaluations are crucial components of comprehensive home inspections, especially for older properties or those located in areas prone to such issues. Identifying early signs of infestation can prevent extensive damage and costly repairs down the line. In this case, our initial findings prompted a recommendation for further evaluation by a qualified pest control professional.
