Traverse City, Michigan (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Timothy Evans, owner of Traverse City Home Inspections LLC (http://www.traversecityhomeinspections.com), a northwest Michigan home inspection company that offers a wide range of home inspection services for properties in Traverse City, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Antrim and Benzie Counties, is pleased to announce that he has just completed the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) course for inspecting for wood destroying organisms. The InterNACHI course teaches home inspectors how to visually inspect a building for signs of wood destroying insect infestation and how to look for indications of structural damage and previous infestation treatment.
To pass the InterNACHI Wood-Destroying Organism Inspection course, a home inspector must complete a 12 hour continuing education credit course and pass more than 10 quizzes and a 100-question final exam. This course has been approved by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, the Master Inspector Certification Board, the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants and a number of government agencies and licensing boards. InterNACHI is the world's largest, non-profit inspection association.
“At Traverse City Home Inspections, we now perform a wood boring insect infestation inspection as part of our regular home inspection service,” says owner Timothy Evans. “I recently completed the additional training for wood boring insects offered through InterNACHi because I feel it is very important that all inspected homes receive a basic inspection for wood destroying insects, like carpenter ants, wood boring wasps and termites. I am certified to perform insect inspections for both residential and commercial properties. I studied entomology at Michigan State University and I understand insect life cycles and the harm they can do to a home. I also work closely with the local entomologists (people who study insects) to better understand current local insect infestation concerns. I have already completing insect inspections for local apartment investment companies,” explains Evans.
“Like many insects, termites and carpenter ants are attracted to moisture and, over time, can inflict considerable damage to any structure that is made with wood. As a home inspector, I have seen firsthand the destruction that termites and carpenter ants can inflict. When deciding to purchase a home, knowing whether or not it has a wood boring insect problem is something that every buyer definitely needs to be aware of,” advises Evans.
