What Does The Inspection
A qualified representative from the licensed pest control company will perform the inspection. He inspects all visible areas of the structure which are readily accessible to him. If he finds evidence of infestation, he reports these evidences on a specified form. An inspection may include sounding or probing areas where infestations are suspected. The inspection may be performed for a nominal fee.
What if Evidence of Investation is Found?
The company will recommend and usually propose appropriate treatment to control the pests and provide recommendations for any associated repairs. For termites, treatment is usually warranted for a year, or two in some cases, meaning if an infestation is not eliminated while the warranty is in effect, the company will re-treat at no charge to you.
Damage is an alarming term. It may be superficial or quite extensive. Damage is evidence of infestation or infection, but evidence may or may not include damage. Some companies make estimates on the repair of the damage if they feel it is necessary. Most companies do not have the expertise and will recommend a building contractor.
NO. The report gives finding of a trained inspector who searched for visual evidence of these pests in the readily accessible areas of the structure. It states that wood destroying pests were or were not found by the inspector in these visible areas. The possibility that an infestation may be hidden inside a wall or beam is possible.
