Structural Pest Inspection

In addition to a general home inspection, a structural pest inspection is a vital part of buying, selling, and maintaining a home. A structural pest inspection can only be performed by licensed SPI inspector who has been trained in detecting wood destroying organisms and their habitation tendencies. Worthy Inspection Services believes so strongly in the importance of structural pest inspections that this service is included, at no extra charge, in all of our home inspections.

Our structural pest inspections will determine whether any wood-destroying organisms, such as wood-decay fungus, termites, and destructive ants and beetles, are present in the structure. In addition, we will alert you of conditions that may encourage wood-destroying organisms to flourish, so you are able to take preventive action against their growth.

Your home is one of the largest single investments you will make in your lifetime. Protect its value and minimize unexpected expenses with a structural pest inspection from Worthy Inspection Services.

We conduct a visual inspection of the structure, meticulously looking for signs of wood destroying organisms. Some of the many organisms we search for are:

  • Carpenter Ants
  • Moisture Ants
  • Subterranean Termites
  • Dampwood Termites
  • Beetles
  • Velvety Tree Ants
  • Wood Decay Fungi (Wood Rot)

All inspections are conducted within the Standards of Practice for Washington State and INTERNACHI.
