Wood Destroying Organisms – WDO Structural Pest Inspections
Structural pest inspections are extremely important and their value is oftentimes significantly underestimated. Wood destroying pests can severely damage the structural integrity of any building, causing thousands in damage.
The most common wood-destroying organisms include carpenter ants, termites, wood infesting beetles, and rot fungus. For trusted structural pest inspections for the Portland, Vancouver, Kelso, and Longview areas, call Pioneer Pest Management today. With licensed structural pest inspectors on staff, you can rest assured you are in competent hands. Although the states of Washington and Oregon do not require a pest inspection before the sale of a house or property, many real estate lenders do, thus having a certified pest specialist conduct a thorough structural pest inspection is usually needed before approval.

Hiring a Certified Structural Pest Inspector
It is a common misconception that home inspections always include a pest inspection as this is not the case. It is in your best interest to seek out an independent structural pest inspection and not rely on an agent or seller to take care of this important task. In addition, if you can be present for the inspection that would be wise as well. Refinancing loans is also often contingent on a structural pest inspection. Another common reason for structural pest inspections is evidence of an infestation. Evidence of a wood-destroying organism infestation includes termite tubes, damaged wood, and the continuous appearance of dead insects.
The manifestation of a structural pest infestation is commonly related to standing water. Buildings and properties that are surrounded by standing water, or have endured plumbing leaks, are increasingly susceptible to wood destroying organisms as water damaged wood is an ideal nesting place for these pests. Furthermore, properties located in areas with perpetually wet weather are also at risk for wood-destroying organisms.
