What to Expect in Your Termite Inspection Report

Jan 10, 2021

Whether you want to buy or sell a home or gain peace of mind about your structure’s integrity, a pest inspection is helpful and may be required. At the appointed time, a pest control professional will arrive at your house, look over every nook and cranny, and then write up a report with those findings. Next comes the big questions, how do you interpret that information, and what should you do with it?

You don’t have to worry about what your termite inspection report means when you choose Times Up Termite. Our experienced professionals not only conduct the inspection, but they will explain what they found and offer recommendations for remediation or prevention. We provide realtors and homeowners across Union City and the Bay Area with reliable, dependable pest control service.

What the Inspection Report Shows

When you are handed a termite inspection report, you may wonder if you need to learn a ‘foreign’ language. That couldn’t be further from the truth! Each company may have slight differences, but at its core, you can expect the following three areas to be addressed:

  1. Current Infestation Status of the Structure: First, you need to know if you have any termite troubles or not. That’s where your report will start. It will reveal if there is an active infestation or signs of a previous one. This section will also indicate what kind of damage already exists. If the termite inspection is being done to sell a home, it will list the key steps that need immediate action and those that may wait.
  2. Risk Levels of a Future Infestation: It’s immensely satisfying to learn that your home is termite-free. However, that doesn’t mean you will never see these pests take up residence in the future. Your report will note potential issues that would encourage an infestation. For example, termites like moist areas, so if there is a water leak or moisture evidence through fungus, the report will point that out.
  3. Treatment Recommendations: This section gives you the options you have to get or keep your home termite-free. If there is evidence that the wood-boring bugs have invaded, you will be provided opportunities to rid your home of them. If your home is clean, then recommendations will be given to keep your home that way.
