Slab Sprays Services in Sydney
Most people don’t realise just how vulnerable the concrete slab can be if proper precautions to protect it aren’t take. These slabs are susceptible to moisture and can even let termites from the soil into the property. At Knock-Down Pest Control, we offer custom solutions for slab protection to all our clients. You can choose between physical barriers, reticulation systems, and slab sprays.
Why slab sprays?
Slab sprays are essentially chemical barriers that form a shield between the termites in the soil and the slab that sits above it. Termites are capable of slipping into cracks that are as small and narrow as 1.5mm. If there’s no barrier between the termites and the property, you’ll have to spend time and energy applying topical termite treatments.
These treatments aren’t as effective and can cost a lot of money over time, which is why it’s better to spend some extra money at the beginning of the construction project to apply slab sprays. Slab sprays are highly effective and durable. The chemical will actively act as a deterrent and help keep the termites away from the building material. The termites will avoid the soil with the chemicals instead of attempting to across the invisible barrier.
How is the spray applied ?
Levelling The Ground
The spray isn’t applied on uneven ground so you need to make sure the ground is level and ready to take slab before you call us.
Spraying The chemical
Once the ground is completely level, we’ll arrive at your property with enough slab spray to generously cover the entire levelled ground. We’ll carefully spray the solution over the ground and make sure we don’t miss a spot. As mentioned before, termites only need a gap of 1.5mm to slip past the protection. Our experts will carefully spray the chemical over the ground in sections to ensure they don’t miss anything.
Letting It Sink It
After the solution is applied, you need to let the chemical sink in and penetrate the soil a little before you install the slab over it.
