Termite Inspections

Why It Is Essential To Get Termite Inspections Done Annually

Termites are some of the most destructive pests, not just in Australia, but around the world as well. These tiny creatures are incredibly silent and burrow through wooden features in your home. It doesn’t take them long to breed on your property in large numbers and cause extensive damage.

By the time the damage is visible, and you notice it, it can become very challenging and expensive to fix. What also makes it very necessary to identify the existence of these pests on your property is that most insurance companies don’t cover this damage. It means that the costs for any repairs or replacement that you need to do would come out of pocket.

This is why we at Knockdown Pest Control always recommend to our clients that they should get termite inspections done at least each year. If you notice any other signs of termite infestations, you should call our team without delay.

We are extremely prompt with our services and make sure that our team visits your property within the shortest possible time. If they notice the incidence of these pests, they will create a detailed treatment plan which will help to eliminate them from your property.

 

What Is Covered in Termite inspections?

It is necessary to understand that termite control is never a one-time activity. Regular termite inspections are needed to ensure that these creatures do not venture towards your home or commercial structure and start to cause damage again. Professional pest control companies always use the latest moisture detection and termite detection equipment in their work which helps to pinpoint the exact location of the infestation.

Never take a chance with termite infestations and always hire a fully insured and licensed company for the job. They will make sure that the task is completed to industry standards. As part of these inspections, professional termite control teams inspect areas such as:

  • Subfloor areas like basements
  • Roof void
  • Fences, garages & sheds
  • Walls & ceilings
  • Outdoor kitchens, decks, pool-houses
  • Flooring
  • Basement areas
  • Other outdoor wooden features like pergolas, pavilions etc.

 

Termite Inspection Reports

Conducting the inspection is only the first aspect of the job. Professionals will always provide you with a report which details their findings related to existing and past termite activity. It also gives you the right idea about how much damage the termites have done and what you can do to prevent it in the future. Getting annual termite inspections done is one of the best ways to ensure that your property is well-protected from the highly destructive creatures.
