Areas Your Termite Inspection Will Cover

A termite inspection of your Hayward home is the best place to start when combating a potential invasion or attempting to prevent one. Your inspector will take their time reviewing your abode. Depending on where you live, they will focus on specific areas. For example, the subterranean variety prefers the ground’s moisture but drywood termites like your attic rafters. Here are the two areas the inspection will cover and what is reviewed:

  1. Exterior: By walking around the outside of your home or office building, your termite inspector will check for visible signs of infestation. These will include looking for droppings (frass), broken wings, mud tubes, and damaged wood. Additionally, they will look at your exterior walls, eaves, and foundation.
  2. Interior: Inside your home, the inspector will check out your baseboards, walls, windows, crawl spaces, doorframes, and so on. They will access your attic and garage, bathrooms, kitchens, and utility rooms.

What to Expect After the Inspection is Over

Once your inspector has completed their review of your home or office building, they will give you a report with their findings. It will indicate the areas that have termite activity and potential issues that could lead to an infestation if not remedied. For example, standing water on your roof or around your foundation is a termite’s dream. Finally, based on their findings, they will design a treatment plan specifically for your situation.
