A pre purchase pest inspection conducted by Jim’s Termite & Pest Control covers a comprehensive assessment of the property’s pest-related issues. Here are the key areas that are typically covered during the inspection:

1. Structural Areas: Our inspectors thoroughly examine the structural components of the property, including the foundation, walls, roof, and flooring. They look for signs of damage, moisture issues, or vulnerabilities that could attract pests.

2. Interior Spaces: All interior spaces, such as living areas, bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens, are inspected for any visible signs of pest activity, including droppings, nests, or damage to furniture, cabinets, or fixtures.

3. Exterior Areas: The property’s exterior is carefully examined, including the walls, windows, doors, eaves, and landscaping features. Our inspectors look for potential entry points, cracks, gaps, or other vulnerabilities that pests could exploit to gain access to the property.

4. Roof and Attic Spaces: If accessible, the roof and attic areas are inspected for any signs of pest infestation or damage. This includes checking for bird nests, rodent activity, or signs of termites or other wood-destroying insects.

5. Subfloor and Crawl Spaces: In properties with subfloors or crawl spaces, our inspectors will inspect these areas for moisture issues, signs of termite activity, or other pest-related concerns.

6. Outbuildings and Surrounding Areas: If applicable, any outbuildings, sheds, or other structures on the property are also examined for pest issues. Additionally, our inspectors assess the property’s immediate surroundings, including vegetation, trees, and drainage systems, as they can impact pest activity.

The pre-purchase inspection aims to identify any existing or potential pest problems that may affect the property. The inspection report will provide detailed information on the findings, including the types of pests specified, the severity of any infestations, and recommendations for treatment or further investigation if necessary.

It’s important to note that a pre-purchase inspection primarily focuses on pests and their related damage. Other aspects of the property, such as structural integrity, electrical systems, plumbing, and compliance with building codes, may require separate inspections from appropriate professionals.
