Pest Inspection

Timber Pest Inspection

A timber pest inspection looks for the signs of damage or activity of timber destroying organisms.

Timber Pest Inspection

It’s a common misconception among property buyers to think, “I can spot termite damage on my own, no need for a Termite/Pest Inspection—saving a few dollars!” If you find yourself entertaining this notion, take a moment to reconsider after considering these crucial facts:

  • Any damage caused by termites is SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED from all building insurance policies throughout Australia!
  • Termite infestation is not immediately apparent through a cursory inspection.
  • Damage to timber is concealed within the woodwork itself, not on the surface.
  • A thorough inspection requires specialized equipment to locate and identify termite/pest infestation.
  • Termites, if severe enough, can wreak havoc on your home within a remarkably short period!

Our Termite Inspection is exceptionally thorough, resulting in a detailed report. During our inspection, our inspectors diligently seek signs of fungal decay, rot, overall indications of termite infestation, and potential danger areas. The report includes results from inspections in key areas:

Interior

We scrutinise for plumbing leaks that could lead to dampness, a prime attraction for termites. This encompasses inspections in bathrooms, kitchens, laundries, and other wet areas, searching for signs of mold. Timber is tested for hollowness and damage.

Exterior

Anything stored near the property, such as garden debris or household items, can create conditions conducive to termite infestation. We inspect boundary fences, trees, and outbuildings to ensure they are termite-free.

Roof Void

Using specialised moisture sensors, we verify moisture levels in roof timber, ensuring adequate ventilation to minimise risk. We check for evidence of leaking roofs, plumbing, and drainpipes, ensuring roofing materials show no signs of termite activity.

Sub Floor

Utilising cutting-edge technology, we effectively inspect timber for hollowness, indicating termite damage. This technology is applied to building frameworks, floor joists, underfloor areas, and general flooring. We ensure sub-floor areas have proper ventilation, unobstructed airflow vents, and show no signs of poor drainage, decay, or blocked weep holes. Additionally, we verify there are no indications of water leaks from wet areas, discouraging extensive termite activity.

In essence, our Termite Inspection is a comprehensive safeguard against potential damage, providing you with peace of mind as you make one of the most significant investments in your life
