Smart homeowners stay on top of termite control. A big part of termite control is keeping termites from invading your home, and the first step in accomplishing this is scheduling a termite inspection. 

During your termite inspection, you can plan for the inspector to spend about an hour and a half to two hours thoroughly going over your property. This time frame will, of course, vary depending on the size of your property. The inspector will look at the interior and exterior areas of your home, checking for visible signs of a termite infestation, which include: droppings, broken wings, mud tubes, and damaged wood.

The inspector will check your baseboards, walls, windows, crawl spaces, door frames, insides of cabinets and closets. During this inspection, he or she will need access to every area of your home, including the garage and attic, and will pay special attention to the bathrooms, kitchens, and utility rooms. Why? Because subterranean termites often use the places where plumbing penetrates the slab to gain access to your home.

Outside your home, the inspector will look at the exterior walls and eaves of the house, and closely examine the foundation. In addition to signs of damage to the wood, the inspector will be on the lookout for mud tubes on the foundation. Having thoroughly inspected the home itself, the inspector will move on to the surrounding property and yard to make sure those areas are not showing signs of termite activity.
