Termite Inspection Port Macquarie by Termite Terriers.
Subterranean termites are by the far the most destructive pests in Australia and pose a real threat to both existing and new homes and buildings.
CSIRO Termite Surveys find that 1 in 3 homes in Australia will be affected by termites at some stage which is more prevalent and costly than damage caused by fire, storm and flood combined.
All too often the presence of these silent invaders goes undetected until the damage is done, and though the problem is so severe, building owners will come to find termite damage is the one disaster not covered by home insurance policies.
It is for that reason that the Building Code and Australian Standard for Termite Protection now require for all new homes being built to be protected against the concealled entry of subterranean termites from the ground into the building.
The Standard does advise that even a correctly installed and complete termite barrier system does not guarantee prevention of termite attack, rather they are simply an aid in the concealed entry of termites into a building and termites can potentially breach or bridge over the barrier. Evidence of termites bridging or breaching a barrier can be detected during regular termite inspections. Further the warranty of all barrier systems is reliant on a minimum of a yearly Termite Inspection to AS3660.2.
The Australian Standard for Termite Protection (AS3660.2) recommends that regular competent inspections be carried out at least once every twelve months and every three to six months for high risk (Port Macquarie) or previously damaged dwellings.
TERMITE INSPECTION PORT MACQUARIE
Termite Inspection Port Macquarie is performed to Australian Standards (and beyond) start at $149.00 and on average take from two to three hours, after which you will be given a report listing current and pre-existing damage and the many recommendations to help proof your property from Termite Attack.
For difficult access properties or properties with a history of termite attack we recommend in addition to a Termite Inspection to AS3660.2, a Termite Detection Dog inspection is performed with a dog trained in the detection of economically important subterranean termite species. This service is unparalleled in the early detection of active termites and is the only method to detect active termites in early stages that are not visible or detectable by other means.
A Termite Inspection Port Macquarie involves a thorough visual inspection of the sub floor, roof void, interior, exterior, and other areas of the property. A thorough and detailed written report is then provided.
Termite Terriers use the non-invasive Termatrac T3i in every inpection as we believe it is the most useful tool in the early detection of termites.
Essentially a Termite Inspection Report is designed to:
Detect old damage and active termites.
Gives you the element of risk of infestation.
Gives you tips on reducing the chances of termite infestation.
Gives recommendation for future termite management and if appropriate termite treatment and the most appropriate option.
Most importantly, educates you about termites.
Identifies species of termites.
A Termite Inspection is designed to detect termites at an early stage as to reduce the amount of damage to your house. It does not stop termites. Australian Standards AS 3660.2- 2000 recommends a termite inspection report is carried out at least once every twelve months and every three to six months for high risk or previously damaged dwellings.
Termite Terriers Pest Control goes beyond the Standards of Visual Only Inspection and uses other non- invasive methods to detect Termite Activity at an earlier stage and thus reduce the potential of damage to your property.
