A skilled termite inspector can complete a basic inspection in under an hour. Here’s what you can expect during a routine appointment.
The First Phase
When the inspector arrives, he or she will search your property for any signs of an infestation. If you have a large property and a big home, this part of the inspection could exceed an hour.
The inspector will move forward if:
- Your home, porch, or deck has wood damage.
- There are broken termite wings on your property.
- There are mud tubes on the ground by your home.
- There are termite droppings on your property.
Phase Two – The Tactical Indoor Inspection
Next, the inspector will continue the investigation in your home. He or she will check
- The attic
- The garage
- Door frames
- Crawl spaces
- Window frames
The inspector will also check the plumbing that runs in and out of your home.
