How does a pest inspection before closing differ from the home inspection?
Once your home goes under contract, the offer you signed will be (in all likelihood) contingent on the results of the home inspection. Home inspectors will look for any hazards, safety threats, or major defects but are limited in what they put in their report about pests. Checking for pests and knowing how to get rid of them requires specific skills that a home inspector doesn’t have.
What to expect from the pest inspection before closing
The pest inspection itself can last as little as 30 minutes but takes longer depending on the size of your home and if you have any crawl spaces, a basement or an attic. During a pest inspection, our professionals check the exterior and interior of your property for any signs of infestation, damage or areas that are attractive to pests. We are looking for evidence of birds, wood boring insects, urban wildlife and rodents.
Why you should consider a pest home inspection?
Purchasing a new home is one of the biggest investments Canadians make in their lifetime, the protection of this investment is of utmost importance. A professional pest inspection can save you a lot of money in the long run.
