Why Regular Termite Inspections Are Crucial
Hot, humid climatic conditions and the large amount of timber the building industry continues to use in constructing Sydney homes, is the right combination for termite attacks.
It is not easy detect termites, as the infestation is likely to occur in inaccessible timbers of the house. The damage can go unnoticed as termites destroy the integrity of timber from the inside out. Everything on the surface may look normal, but on application of pressure the timber crumbles and disintegrates. A coat of paint may be the only thing holding it up.
Known also as white ants, termites have a reputation as the most destructive insect pest in Australia. They are capable of causing large amounts of damage in a very short period of time. Regular termite inspections significantly reduces the chance of termites establishing themselves within your property, therefore extensive damage can be avoided.
Images as above, show examples of termite attacks and damage in houses throughout various Sydney suburbs. The one thing in common in all of these homes was, none of them was checked for termites regularly.
