Preparing for a termite inspection

By
Home Inspector with Arden Termite And Pest Control

For more information, you can visit our website at:  www.ardentermite.com

While it is called a "Termite Inspection" it is officially a "Structural Pest Control Inspection."
In addition to termites, the inspector will also be looking for fungus and water damage and for conditions such as plumbing leaks or earth to wood contact that can lead to termite or fungus damage.
For a complete inspection, there are a few things you can do to prepare for the inspector:
Image Loading... Remove any storage from the areas under sinks in the kitchens & bathrooms.
Image Loading... Remove any storage from the area within two feet of the exterior of the house
Image Loading... Remove any storage in the interior of the garage two feet away from the wall.
Image Loading... Trim back any bushes or ground cover that conceals the walls or foundation.

If your home is built on a raised foundation, the inspector will go under the house. Be sure the access opening to the subarea is not blocked by storage.

Hi, I read your post about termite inspection and wanted to let you know about a brand new site about termites located at www.termites.com. Right now the site is a non-commercial library of hundreds of pest-related articles written by industry professionals.

Hi, I read your post about termites and wanted to mention that I recently launched www.termites.com and have been trying to get the word out. If possible I would like to discuss helping me out with a link to our new site.
