Termite inspections by Florida Pest Control in Southern Florida

Annual termite inspections are very important when it comes to protecting your property against these destructive pests. Inspections not only identify termites but also identify the conditions that make a property more vulnerable to wood-destroying pests. Many homes in the United States are at risk of termites.

We understand termites have no place in your home. The termite control team at Florida Pest Control performs comprehensive termite inspections that will accurately diagnose any termite issues in your South Florida home or business.

Termite inspections for real estate purchases

Termites and other wood-destroying pests are a top concern in South Florida. Before closing on your home, you will want to have it professionally inspected. An inspection will identify any termite signs and the conditions that make the home more susceptible to termites, like wood rot and moisture–factors that are not generally identifiable to the untrained eye.

Florida Pest Control provides customers in South Florida with professional wood-destroying organism inspections for real estate purchases and refinancing. In addition to termites, our team is trained to inspect for evidence of carpenter bees, carpenter ants, wood-boring beetles, and other wood-destroying organisms.

Some U.S. states actually require termite inspections before the property goes under contract. A Florida Pest Control specialist conducting a real estate inspection will provide you with written documentation in the presence or absence of wood-destroying organism activity.

What to expect with a termite inspection

With termite inspections, it is important to look for more than just active termite infestations. At Florida Pest Control, our exterminators also look for evidence of previous pest infestations or conditions that may lead to new pest infestations. Our termite inspection process includes the following steps:

  1. Thoroughly examining the inside and outside of your home or building for evidence of termites, including the pests themselves, conducive conditions, wings, exit holes, and termite damage.
  2. Inspecting for cracks, hollowed wood, and bubbled paint – all of which are indicators of a wood destroying insect infestation.
  3. If termites are discovered, a custom treatment plan will be developed based on the termite type and the severity of the infestation.
  4. If no evidence of termites are found, preventative tips will be given to help you prevent termites from infesting your home.
