At Hildreth, we have certified and experienced pest control technicians, who examine the property closely to see if there is a presence of wood destroying organisms (WDO) like carpenter ant, drywood termite, subterranean termite, wood destroying beetles or any other organism that eats wood.
Most of the inspectors are trained and skilled to carry out general home inspections, but it requires special training and knowledge to carry out a WDO inspection in Jacksonville, FL. And, we have inspectors with necessary training and expertise.
A WDO inspection report is a written report of an inspection on a property for visible and accessible evidence of an infestation or damage by wood destroying organisms. This report is required in many states across the US for a transfer of property. Infact, all houses in Florida are required to get a wood destroying organism inspection done yearly. It is estimated that damage caused by wood destroying organisms in the US amounts to a whopping $5 billion every year.
What does a WDO inspector do? He will evaluate all wooden components of the property, climb through the attic to inspect it, walk the exterior of the property and check the soffits for signs of termites, walk the interior and tap on baseboards. The inspector basically looks for signs of wood destroying organisms like decaying wood, termite droppings, galleries, exit holes or mud tubes created by subterranean termites.
