What is a Regular Visual Termite Inspection?

A regular visual termite inspection is a proactive measure aimed at detecting the presence of termites and assessing any potential damage they may have caused. Conducted by our qualified and experienced professionals, these inspections involve a thorough visual assessment of accessible areas within and around your property to identify signs of termite activity or conducive conditions that may attract these pests.

Why is a Regular Visual Termite Inspection Required?

Termites are notorious for their ability to cause extensive damage to properties, often without being detected until significant harm has already been done. By investing in regular visual termite inspections, you can catch infestations in their early stages, minimising the risk of costly repairs and structural damage down the line. Additionally, these inspections provide peace of mind, knowing that your property is being actively monitored for potential threats.

What's Covered in a Regular Visual Termite Inspection?

During a regular visual termite inspection, our team meticulously examines key areas of your property, including the interior, exterior, roof void, subfloor, and surrounding grounds. We look for visible signs of termite activity, such as mud tubes, damaged wood, discarded wings, and hollow-sounding timber. Additionally, we assess moisture levels, ventilation, and other environmental factors that may contribute to termite infestations.

What Happens After a Regular Visual Termite Inspection is Conducted?

Following the inspection, our team provides you with a detailed report outlining our findings and recommendations. If termites are detected, we’ll work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan to eradicate the infestation and prevent future occurrences. Even if no active termite activity is found, we may suggest preventive measures to reduce the risk of future infestations, such as moisture control and termite barriers.
