Pest Inspections

When you move into a home, or even after you’ve been in there for a while, you don’t want it to be a habitat for various pest. While a home inspection covers the general systems and structure of a home, a pest inspection is specialized. 

We’ll go over everything you need to know about pest inspections and make sure you’re prepared should the need arise or is required. 

What is a pest inspection?

A pest inspection includes a search for insects and other creatures that can cause damage to the structure of your property, a health hazard or both. One common structural concern is caused by termites that get their nutrients from the wood in your house, but various other insects and rodents can also cause concerns.

What does a pest inspection entail?

A pest inspection usually takes place around the same time as a home inspection or appraisal. In fact, one of the instances it might be required is when an appraiser observes signs of a potential pest problem. However, as a homeowner, you can have a pest inspection done whenever you’re worried you might have an issue.

If you suspect a problem and you can visually see where it’s coming from, it may be possible to do some DIY inspection and mitigation. However, this is something that’s often best left to pros. If required to get an inspection for your mortgage, a professional will be required such as getting a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) loan.

How long does a pest inspection take?

Most pest inspections usually take between 30 minutes to an hour to complete. However, the actual length could be longer depending on a variety of factors, including what they have to look for, the square footage and the actual layout of the house. For example, if you have a crawlspace or attic that is harder to access, that can take some additional time.
