Termite inspections or wood destroying organism (WDO) inspections refer to reports done by licensed pest-control specialists determining whether wood-destroying insects are present in a home. This inspection is required by most lenders prior to approving a home loan. It is also a good way for homeowners to be informed on the structural status of their home, and make repairs if necessary.

Why get a termite inspection?

As stated above, a termite inspection Florida is typically required by the bank before they approve a home loan. Also, these wood destroying organisms left unchecked can cause significant damage to your home. This damage can range from a few wall studs to total structural failure. These insects typically borough through the ground or fly through the air, entering a home through tiny cracks or vents and ultimately finding their way inside walls, attics and crawl-spaces. From there the structural components of your home become an all-you-can-eat buffet, leaving you with a hefty bill. Some of the areas termites commonly destroy are:

Subflooring
Ceilings
Wood Siding
Stairs
Decks
Roofing
Furniture
Cabinets
Studs
Structural supports
