If your home has a termite issue chances are you’ll want to book a termite inspection. However, you might be unsure as to what an inspection will involve. Don’t worry, this article will help you.

Inspecting Your Water Sources

Inspecting Your Water Sources One of the things our inspectors will do is to take a look at your water sources. They will need to do this so they can see if there’s any termite activity. You should, therefore, move anything you have stored under your sinks and against your walls. If you have anything leaning against your home’s outside walls you should move those items at least 2 feet away. This is so our inspector can access the area easily. 

Accessing the Attic

If you have anything blocking your attic you will need to move it so our inspector can access your attic. 

Clearing the Crawl Space

If your home has been built on a raised foundation our inspector will need to have access to this space so they can check for termites.

Checking Your Home’s Interior and Exterior

When you ask us to send one of our inspectors to your home they will check the interior and exterior. They will look for mud tubes, broken wings, damaged wood, and droppings. These are all signs of termites so a thorough inspection will need to be carried out. The inspection could take up to 2 hours depending on the size of your property.

Checking Your Windows, Walls, and More

What to Expect from an In-Home Termite Inspection?​Here at All Clear Exterminating, we will ask our inspector to check the following areas in and around your home:

  • Attic
  • Baseboards
  • Bathrooms
  • Crawl spaces 
  • Door frames 
  • Eaves
  • Exterior walls
  • Garage
  • Kitchen
  • Inside your cabinets 
  • Inside your closets 
  • Utility rooms
  • Walls
  • Windows
  • Your home’s foundation

We will pay attention to all of these areas, particularly the kitchen, utility rooms, and bathrooms. This is because termites like to use areas where plumbing makes its way into your home. They will also pay a lot of attention to your home’s foundation. This is because there could be signs of damage here.
