Termite inspections, your first defence
Is there really a benefit in having a termite inspection carried out in your building? This service is usually required by those selling or buying a house, but in a high-risk area termite inspections should be performed on a regular basis.
Termite specialist Northern NSW
With around 1 in 4 homes being attacked by termites, Queensland Building Services Authority & the Australian Standards recommend regular inspection for termite activity. The Australian standards recommend Yearly (12) termite inspection or six monthly (6) termite inspection for High Risk Areas.
If you are not sure you need a termite inspection, here is what you should know about this service:
Making a good investment
A thorough termite inspection can make the difference between making a good real estate investment and throwing your money in a pit. Buying a house infested with termites means you will need to repair someone else’s mistakes and spend a lot of money in the process.
Hiring a qualified termite inspector
These insects can get past a certified home inspector who is trained to look for general problems. Certified termite inspectors, on the other hand, are trained to discover wood destroying organisms and to determine for sure whether a home has termites or not.
Termites are a silent pest
These insects can infest a home for years without detection. You may consider your home is safe and discover the damage caused by termites too late, when the costs for fixing your home are very high.
All Purpose Pest can help by offering the latest technology that includes the Termatrac moisture sensor and bore scopes (tools that allow you to gain visual access inside walls and other enclosed voids). Access to additional advanced technology like thermal imaging cameras is also available.
You will be provided with a customer login, giving you access to a webpage where your inspection report will be uploaded.
Please Note: This option will not eradicate existing termite activity or provide any future protection from further attack. It is not a termite treatment.
