Wood Destroying Insect Inspections:
In the United States, wood destroying insects are a widespread problem. The problem is compounded by the fact that these insects are often not found until they have caused costly damage to a home. For this reason, most mortgage companies require a termite certification prior to mortgage approval. The certification indicates that the house is free of wood destroying insects. Here at Serenity Home Inspections, we provide efficient and reliable testing. Once your home is found to be free of wood destroying insects, we will issue a termite certification.
