A Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) Inspection Report is a written report based on a visual inspection of a structure. The State of Florida mandates what is considered wood destroying and provides the form to report it on. This form is called a 13645 form.
A WDO inspection report is provided when a home or other structure is being sold and the mortgage lender and/or buyer requires the inspection as part of the transaction.
The WDO inspection can only be done by a wood-destroying organisms identification cardholder (or a certified operator with the wood-destroying organisms category) of a pest control company licensed by the state. These employees must receive special training to be qualified as WDO inspectors
