Termite Inspections

If you are buying or selling a home, it is imperative that you have the team at Residential Inspector of America complete a Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) inspection on the property. Wood Destroying Organisms, such as termites, can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to a structure, so early identification is a must. We offer a State of Florida WDO inspection and report through our sister company, PestNation, and recommend that a WDO inspection be completed with your full home inspection.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Termite Home Inspections

A WDO report is a written report based on the visible inspection of a home for evidence of an infestation or damage caused by wood-destroying organisms. The report is commonly referred to as a termite inspection, clearance letter, or termite letter.

WDO inspections check for termites, powder post beetles, old house borers, and wood-decaying fungi. They do not report on evidence of carpenter ants or carpenter bees.

Decks are included on the WDO report if they are attached or contiguous with the home. Only the portion of any fence touching or adjoining the home is included on the house termite inspection report.

Inspectors are required to have a pest control ID card issued by the state of Florida, indicating they have completed specialized training to perform WDO inspections.

A clear report indicates there is no existing evidence of WDO infestations or damage to visible and accessible areas of the property.

It does not mean that the buyer can be absolutely certain there are no wood-destroying organisms infesting the structure or existing damage. Infestations can be hidden behind walls or other inaccessible locations and not detected during an inspection, or the seller may have recently repaired damage from previous WDO infestations.

Any report of visible damage or infestation is an indication that termites or other wood-destroying organisms have been or are currently present in the structure. Repairs may or may not have resolved the issue. Home buyers should investigate further to determine the current status of WDO protection on the structure and if the repaired damage was a symptom of a more extensive infestation.
