Termite inspections

Termite inspections are essential for early detection of termite activity on your property. The earlier a termite infestation is detected, the better chance you have at avoiding large-scale damage and expensive repairs.

Since termites are active 24/7, we recommend that you have your property inspected for termites annually. You should also schedule a termite inspection if you suspect any activity or see any signs of termites. Termite inspections will assess the conditions that make a property more susceptible to different types of termites and wood destroying organisms to minimize the risk of attack

Many homes in the United States are at risk of termites and Ehrlich Pest Control is here to protect them. Our comprehensive annual termite inspections provide the best protection against termites.

Ehrlich's termite inspection procedure

Ehrlich termite control specialists use their experience and professional training to carry out a comprehensive inspection for termites around your home or business premises. Benefits of our termite inspections include:

  • Local knowledge - Our specialists live in the communities in which they work, giving them local knowledge to accompany their on-the-ground experience and extensive training.
  • Comprehensive reporting - We provide a full report at the completion of every termite inspection. The report tells you what we found, and if necessary, provides recommendations on the best solution for your individual situation.
  • Termite Warranty - Our Termite Warranty covers our inspection and treatment, offering long-term reassurance against the threat of termites.
 

Our termite control experts have been providing termite solutions for years and we've developed a method that works.  Here’s what to expect from your termite inspection:

Pre-inspection

Before beginning the termite inspection, one of our licensed inspectors will discuss any concerns or needs you may have. Your inspector will also give you a thorough description of what is involved in the inspection. In order to expedite the process, please be sure to clear up any clutter against your walls, as your specialist will specifically need access to them.

During the inspection

Termite inspections can take an hour or more, depending on the size and intricacy of the property. Your inspector will examine both the inside and outside of your property, including your attic, patio, porch, garage, and basement (if applicable). He or she will also look for possible leaks in high-moisture environments such as your kitchen and bathrooms. Your specialist will be searching for termites (dead or alive), termite pellets, termite wings, and termite tubes.

Post-inspection

After your termite inspection is complete, you will receive a report that describes everything the specialist found, whether it be the pests themselves or damage they left behind. The report will also provide recommendations for treatment, repair, and/or preventative services going forward.

Termite inspection cost

With the exception of inspections for real estate purchases, termite inspections provided by Ehrlich specialists are conducted free of charge to property owners. Keep in mind, if termite activity is found during the inspection there may be other associated pest control costs. But you can rest assured that your termite specialist will take time to determine the best termite treatment for your individual needs.

A termite inspection to complete a real estate purchase is subject to fees, typically covered by the seller of the home. The cost of the inspection can vary based on the size of the property, location, and property type. Contact your local Ehrlich office to gain more information regarding the cost of termite inspections.

Termite inspections for real estate purchases

Ehrlich Pest Control does provide customers with professional termite and wood-destroying organism inspections for real estate purchases and refinancing. In addition to termites, Ehrlich specialists are trained to inspect for evidence of other wood destroying organisms such as carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and wood-boring beetles.

When going through the home-buying process, a mortgage lender can require a termite inspection for loan approval. The Veterans Administration (VA) requires a wood-destroying organism inspection for more than 30 states in the U.S. before they will close a loan. According to the Federal House Administration (FHA), a termite inspection is required to ensure the home is free from termites and other wood-destroying pests before the FHA will approve the loan.

An Ehrlich specialist conducting a real estate inspection will provide the necessary written documentation needed in the presence or absence of wood-destroying organism activity. No matter who you are getting your loan from, it is important that you contact your local office to discuss your options.
