Termites and other wood destroying organisms can eat wood and cause destruction. In the US, it is estimated that damage caused by wood destroying organisms amounts to a whopping $5 billion every year. This is why across some states in the US, it is mandatory to get a termite testing done yearly. This report is also required by some states for transfer of property. Entrust us with termite testing in Chicago.
Our team of pest control technicians at Drumm Home Inspections inspect the property closely to check for the presence of termites and other wood destroying organisms. A detailed termite inspection report is then given about the visible and accessible evidence of damage or infestation by termites.
Not all home inspectors are trained to conduct a termite testing in Chicago. It requires special training and knowledge to be able to detect the presence of termites in a property. However, all inspectors with us have the expertise and knowledge to carry out such inspections.
So what does our inspector check? The inspector will evaluate all wooden components of the property. He will climb the attic to inspect it, walk the interior and tap on baseboards. He will then repeat the same for the exterior where he will inspect the soffits. The inspector basically looks for signs indicating the presence of termites. Termite droppings, decaying wood, exit holes, galleries or mud tubes created by subterranean termites are some common signs.
