Granny Flat Termite Barrier Services in Sydney
Granny flats have become increasingly popular in the past few years in Australia. They improve the overall value of the property and provide a private space for your elderly parents. These flats rarely come with the original home plan and homeowners usually add it at a later date if they have space in their property. However, before you attempt to construct a granny flat, you need to make sure there’s a termite barrier in place. We at Knock-Down Pest Control can help you with that.
What Is A Termite Barrier?
Barrier Between Soil & Concrete
A termite barrier is a physical or chemical barrier between the soil and the concrete slab and wooden framing of the property. Soil naturally contains termite and no matter how much you try to treat the soil and kill the existing termites, the pests will eventually come back and cause problems in the granny flat. These problems will spread to other areas of your property and cause considerable amount of damage.
People often forget to install termite barriers in granny flats and are forced to deal with frequent infestations and expensive repairs for a long time. You’ll have to regularly apply topical termite control solutions in order to keep your property safe and that can prove to be expensive in the long run.
