Avoid Extensive Termite Damage With a Regular Inspection

Your house is your biggest asset, unfortunately it can also be a major food source for termites. These unwanted visitors can cause substantial damage to your property resulting in stress and financial losses. It stems from the fact that termites have a ferocious appetite for timber, paper, furniture and any other product that contain cellulose.

Images as above show examples of termite damage and workings in various houses. Neither of these homes were inspected regularly.

Termites shy away from open and well ventilated spaces. They build tunnels and prefer dark, moist and obscure areas where there is little human activity. In fact, termites usually built their nests in trees, below the ground, and tree stumps. Sometimes they will choose to construct a nest in the roof cavity or under the floor of your house.

When it comes to preventing termites from causing a large amount of damage to your property, regular inspections have been proven to be the most reliable and effective method.

Frequent inspections significantly reduces the chances of termites establishing themselves, giving them less time for their destructive work.

Termite inspection is the foundation to an effective termite management program. It is also the essential component in understanding the construction style, accessibility, landscaping and climatic conditions within the building. All these elements are critical, not only for termites establishing themselves, but also in deciding on the most appropriate treatment that should be undertaken.

Termite inspections should be carried out at least on an annual basis, that is if your property is at low risk to a termite attack. Unfortunately the majority of houses are at moderate to high risk. If your house falls into this category 6 monthly termite inspections are recommended. There are also many other reasons that can influence the frequency at which termite inspections should be carried out.  Some of them are: location, previous termite history and age of the building. In many homes 3 monthly termite inspections are not uncommon.

Depending on the size of the property, a termite inspection will take approximately 2 hours. It is also important to note the person carrying out your termite inspections has the knowledge, experience and the right equipment for the job.

Why Regular Termite Inspections Are Crucial

Favourable climatic conditions and large amount of timber the building industry continues to use for constructing houses is the right combination for termite attack. 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.

It is difficult to detect termites  in early stages of the infestation as it is likely to occur in the inaccessible timbers of your house. Termites can go on unnoticed as they tend to destroy the integrity of timber from the inside out. Everything on the surface may look normal, but on application of pressure it will crumbles and disintegrate.

Coat of paint may be the only thing holding it up.

While every third house in Sydney has been effected by termites at some stage, it’s worthwhile to remember.

When you have en inspection carried out regularly, termites are found early and before significant damage is done.
