CL-100 Letter VS. Termite Bond
If you have bought or sold a home, you may be familiar with needing a termite letter (CL-100) as part of the inspection before closing. This can often get confused with a termite bond. A termite bond is a guarantee that after a treatment, the pest control company ensures that if a termite infestation occurs during the bond agreement, the company will cover the cost to remove the infestation. A CL-100 termite letter is a pre-inspection that is valid for only 30 days.
What Do the Inspectors Look for with the CL-100 Termite Letter?
The letter will have to state that the home did not need repairs, or the house did need repairs and they have been completed.
What is the Purpose of a Termite Bond?
A termite bond is placed on a home or business after a termite treatment is provided by the contractor. The termite bond acts like a warranty to ensure any new activity or damages by termites are covered by the contractor. After PestGuard conducts an inspection and performs required treatment, the bond guarantees our work. If termites return, it covers the cost of any further treatment.
Why do I Need a Termite Bond?
Put simply – so you can rest easily knowing your home is covered. The termite bond is also transferrable to a new home owner if the home is ever sold! Homes that have “Termite Bonds” in place are also ahead of the curve when a termite inspection (CL-100/WIR) is performed during the sales transaction of the home. If a termite infestation is found at inspection, you will often be required to purchase a termite bond before a potential buyer will close. Having one in advance can make your home that much more appealing to a potential buyer.
At PestGuard Solutions we provide our customers termite bonds with LIFETIME protection for your home or business. This warranty can not only save you thousands of dollars, but also adds a peace of mind to the property owners. There are no surprises. No hidden fees, no deadlines. Just full coverage on your home or business. For the duration of your termite bond, we will inspect, monitor, and control your termite problem, protecting your home and your business.
At Pestguard we would love to serve you with either of these options! We are a favorite among many realtors in town for the termite letters and we would be happy to set you up for our yearly inspections.

"In addition to addressing our flea infestation, they came to the house to do our termite bond, a fire ant treatment, and had to come back a couple times to deal with the INSANE flea problems in our newly purchased home. I was hesitant to even contact them again when the fleas persisted after their 30-day guarantee time period because most people would charge again...but Tyler came back even after that period of time to deal with them until they were finally gone! I wouldn't hesitate to use this company again and would highly recommend."
