WDO Termite Inspection
Real estate inspections are also referred to as wood-destroying organism (WDO) inspections. These inspections can be critical for real estate agents looking to sell quality homes, as well as for new or current homeowners looking to ensure the quality of their investment or apply for a mortgage or home loan. If you need a quick, reliable real estate inspection, call Gato Lawn & Pest Control. Our termite inspection professional has conducted over 35,000 home inspections in Central Florida, and inspections are performed by the owner himself!
WDO Inspection Checklist
Gato Guard's team of state-certified specialists has a rigorous checklist that we use to ensure that homes are pest-free and safe from costly and time-consuming pest problems. These pests include termites, rot fungus, carpenter ants, and wood-infesting beetles. The specialists will examine for warning signs such as dead insects or insect body parts, damaged wood, and habitats such as the tubes that termites build along walls and in crawl spaces.
It’s also important to examine risk factors and conditions which may contribute to a wood-destroying organism (WDO) infestation, such as:
- Standing water in or around the home, which attracts pests and may act as a breeding ground
- Wood-to-earth contact, which may act as an open invitation to termites and other WDOs
- Leaks in the plumbing infrastructure, which contributes to providing unwanted pests with habitats
- Risk factors for other pests, such as cracks, holes, and gaps that may be easily penetrated
One of the key components of a real estate or WDO inspection is the inspection report. Our team will work quickly and diligently to provide you with a comprehensive report within a satisfying turnaround time. Home buyers and sellers alike can rest assured knowing that our licensed and carefully trained experts will provide full insight into the home’s condition, as well as any recommendations based on risk factors that may contribute to future pest infestations.
