WDO stands for ‘wood destroying organisms’ and include pests such as termites. If you plan to get a termite inspection for your home or business then you will receive a WDO report once the inspection is complete. As you prepare for a termite inspection, it is good to take some time to learn what to expect to see in the WDO inspection report. This will help you understand what is in the report and make decisions based off of that information.
Information about the current infestation status of your property
The WDO inspection report will include information about the current infestation status of your property. This means that you will learn in the report whether or not you have a termite infestation. The inspector will also let you know if there are signs of a previous infestation. If you do have a current termite problem, the inspector will also make note of any damage that has already occurred.
Details about your risk for developing an infestation
Sometimes there is good news in a WDO inspection report. You may learn that there are no signs of termite activity or damage in your home. This is a great position to be in because it means that there is no need for expensive repairs. It is important to remember that a clean inspection report does not mean you will never get termites. The inspector will make note of any issues around your property that could lead to an infestation. For example, areas with excess moisture or wood stored close to the house are both risk factors for developing a termite infestation. If the inspector includes any risk factors, you should take steps to eliminate those from your property.
Treatment recommendations going forward
The WDO inspection report you receive will also include treatment recommendations going forward. If you have a current infestation the report will include the best treatment option to eradicate the termites quickly and keep them from returning. If you do not have a current termite infestation, the report will provide you with recommendations on how to help your property remain termite free.
A WDO inspection report is a document that will provide you with valuable information about the condition of your property. All of the information in the report is related specifically to your home or business. This means that you can use the report to make decisions about the next step you should take to protect your property from the threat of termites. There is no need to worry about whether or not you will be able to understand the information provided in the WDO inspection report. Your inspector will go over the main points of the inspection report with you and will answer any questions you have about the content.
