What is a WDO Termite Inspection?

Termite inspections in Florida are actually called Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) Inspections. A “wood-destroying organism” is an arthropod or plant life that damages or re-infests seasoned wood in a structure. This includes termites (dry-wood, damp-wood, Formosan, or subterranean), powder post beetles, old house borers, and wood-decaying fungi.

Our approach to Wood Destroying Organism Inspections

Maverick Inspection Services is a Florida-licensed pest control company.

Licensed & Experienced Inspectors

Our WDO inspectors are licensed with the Florida department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. They have decades of experience and take pride in their work. 

FHA & VA Loan Approval

Home buyers request a WDO Inspection report when trying to apply for a loan via FHA and VA. This report is required for those loans.

Document Evidence

We document evidence of active infestation of termites, powder post beetles, rot, and wood-decaying fungus. These infestations get worse and cost more if you wait.

Thorough Investigations

There is no set time for this inspection. We look at exposed wood on the exterior in exposed areas, in the attic, and in the interior. We examine structural damage and cosmetic damage.

Reviews on our WDO Home Inspections

“I have used Mike on a handful of inspections for both myself and clients. He is very thorough, takes the time to explain things, does his best to make himself available and is a true professional. I look forward to working with him again and definitely recommend Maverick Inspection Services!”

—Amanda Grace Pozo

“Mike had been a pleasure to work with, during the process of buying a house it’s hard to find a good honest reliable person. He was thorough and made sure to check everything. He didn’t rush and made me aware of small things that where not a big problem but should fix. He’s communication and attention to detail where excellent. If you need a qualified and amazing company to do inspections, I recommend Maverick inspections service. I will definitely use his services again.”

Wood Destroying Organism Inspections

No worries, you don’t need to be there for the whole inspection. We’ll just need a key to access the house. However, we prefer you are there at the end, if possible. If you are out of town and this is not possible, no problem. The report is photo documented and detailed. Because our reports are so thorough, we get very few calls later.

The price of the inspection depends on the size of the home and the number of stories you house is. Please contact us for an exact quote.

Our reports are highly detailed and they are uploaded online for your review. As long as we have access to the house, we can do a home inspection for a client out of the country.

The FHA and the VA require a WDO inspection for a home loan. Our report can be provided to satisfy this requirement.

Sure, here is a sample report:

As long as it takes! But on an average size home or building of 2500 sqft, this inspection takes about 1 – 2 hours depending on the issues found.

We’ll need access to the property, usually by means of a home owner or a Realator. If you have knowledge of any issues before we arrive, it is helpful to provide those to us. If you have any specific concerns, let us know. We’ll give them our special attention.

You can combine the following:

  1. Multiple inspections on one house. (For example, if you need a home inspection, a Wood Destroying Organism Inspection, and an Irrigation Inspection.)
  2. Multiple inspections on various houses. (For example, if you are considering buying a home but can’t decide between two homes—we’ll inspect them both for you and provide reports on both homes to help you make a good decision.)

Upon request, we can provide a list of well-reviewed local contractors that our customers enjoy using.

However, you always hire a contractor at your own risk.
