    Why should I consider a home inspection?

    Too many times we hear horror stories when a buyer finds out only after buying a new home that the termite damage is so severe that they need to spend thousands of dollars to repair the home’s structure. The extra step and cost of having your future home inspected is well worth the peace of mind you’ll have from understanding the home’s current status.

    Our special pest inspectors will not only evaluate for insects that cause wood damage, but they’ll also evaluate for other pests that can be an annoyance or possible threat down the line.

    We always recommend having a professional pest inspector do the termite inspection. Termites are so small that they can be difficult to see with the naked eye, and the damage they do to the house often goes unnoticed until it’s in a severe case where structural damage may result.

    What to expect during an inspection?

    Our professional pest inspectors will perform a thorough evaluation of the home, inside and outside, and examine if there may be signs of infestation. There is no need to be alarmed or concerned as this is to be expected.

    How are pests eliminated?

    There are times when an entire tenting of the home is not required, and instead, spot testing can be completed. After a thorough examination, we will provide a list of recommended steps for you and what to expect next.
