What is a WDO Inspection?
When obtaining a mortgage or a mortgage guarantee to finance the purchase of a home, you most likely will be required to obtain a WDO inspection by the bank, the mortgage company, or the guarantor (VA, HUD, FHA, etc.).
Although commonly referred to as a “termite inspection,” WDO stands for “wood-destroying organism,” and a proper WDO inspection looks for evidence of infestation by termites (both subterranean and dry wood types, wood decay, wood devouring beetles as well as evidence of past infestations, damage to wood, or conditions conductive to infestation; and evidence of pest treatments.
Important WDO Inspection Facts:
Understand that a proper termite and WDO inspection of an existing house will usually take close to an hour, or sometimes even longer. Don’t let anyone try to pressure the inspector into rushing through an inspection. If the real estate agent has another appointment to get to, that’s their problem.
A proper WDO inspection costs money. Credentialed WDO inspection companies spend thousands of dollars a year on continuing training, certifications, inspection equipment, and insurance in order to provide you with the best inspection possible. So be very suspicious of companies offering cut-rate or “quickie” inspections. As with anything else, you generally get what you pay for.

"A few months back I decided that I wanted to check on different prices of pest control because I felt that I was paying to much with another company. I ended up finding Care Free Pest Control Solutions through my search. I had spoken to Tim over the phone, he was very polite and took the time to speak with me. I didn't feel rushed or as if someone just wanted to make money. Tim came out to the house for a basic routine check and did a wonderful job he even went above and beyond his job of duty. I had told him that my mom had a rat problem at her house. He took the time to make another appointment with me to meet at my moms house and helped recommend what she needed to do in order to get rid of this problem. She was so impressed with his thoughtfulness to take the time and step out of his regular services that she asked for him to become his routinely pest service guy. I highly recommend Care Free Pest Solutions as they provide the every day, to the difficult to even going above and beyond the normal job of duty."
