we just got done with an inspection at my parents house. they were having some nasty termite problems so the exterminator suggested we get the house tested for dhmo residue. much to our surprise, the house was covered in it. now we gotta find a place to stay for a month so they can rip up the entire house and treat it. they said that its coming in through the pipes. to help prevent it, they will be doing something with the pipes to keep this from coming in. i didnt get all the details, but it sounds like a bunch of work to be done.

have you any of you guys gotten your houses tested for dhmo? if not, you may want to very soon.

Damn that sucks. Do your parent's live in a wet area? I've heard before that DHMO tends to break out in excessive quantities when water or moisture seeps into normally dry areas of a building. Make sure you check the roof for leaks, or foundation/basement for cracks.

So how much will the repair bill run?

If that's the case you may get by with having some irrigation plumbing pressed into the soil uderneath the house, and have it filled with some sort of porous material (forgot the name). Usually it'll absorb the DHMO enough to prevent future outbreaks.
