Why get a Termite Inspection?
When it comes to structural damage, termites are one of the worst pests homeowners can have. They are wood-eating insects that burrow into the walls and structures of houses and cause damage to the system of support.
It can be difficult to see the signs that you have a termite problem until they’ve already done some damage, so Total Home Inspection suggests regular checks of your home, about every 1-2 years if possible to prevent extensive damage to your property.
Upon completion, if no termite evidence is found, the inspector will issue a written certificate stating these findings. If evidence or damage is found, a list of recommended repairs and treatments and termite exterminators may be provided.

6 Ways To Prep Your Home For A Successful Termite Inspection
Inside the Home:
Make sure all basements, crawlspaces, and attics have clear openings and can be easily entered by the inspector.
Move items and furniture away from the walls to create at least a two foot clearance space.
Clear away all items from under the sinks in the bathrooms and kitchen.
Outside of the Home:
Trim back plantings that are close to exterior walls.
Clear out all debris and dead plantings that are close to the foundation.
Remove excess soil that reaches above the bottom of the siding.
Move all extra wood (such as firewood or extra building materials) away from the home.
