Termite inspections are a crucial step in ensuring the structural integrity of your San Diego home. Here's a comprehensive overview of what happens during a termite inspection:
- Visual Examination: Your Kilter termite inspector will start by conducting a visual inspection of the interior and exterior of your property. They carefully examine areas known to be susceptible to termite infestations, such as crawl spaces, basements, attics, and around the foundation.
- Probing and Tapping: The inspector may use specialized tools like a moisture meter or a tapping device to check for hollowed-out or damaged wood. They gently tap or probe wooden surfaces to listen for hollow sounds, which can indicate termite activity.
- Checking Vulnerable Areas: The inspector pays close attention to areas where moisture levels are higher, such as around plumbing, areas of roof leakage, or improperly drained gutters. These conditions can attract termites.
- Inspecting Woodpiles and Debris: Any woodpiles, old tree stumps, or debris near the property are inspected since they can serve as a potential food source for termites.
- Examining Access Points: The inspector looks for potential entry points like cracks in the foundation, gaps around windows and doors, and utility entry points. These areas are potential entry points for termites.
- Checking for Mud Tubes: Subterranean termites often build mud tubes as protective passageways between their colony and a food source. These are typically found along the foundation or walls.
