Pest Inspections – Our Process!

The process we apply is thorough and includes some very old and some very new techniques.

Old School

We start with the old fashion method of tapping every piece of timber we can. This includes skirting boards, door jambs, window frames and inside cupboards listening for changes in sound that highlight weakened timbers.

High Tech

Pest Inspections - thermal image

Then we go high tech turning on all showers and taps and checking behind every wet area with the moisture meter. This allows us to detect any leaks that will result in moist areas.

We then check all walls, ceilings and floors with our thermal imaging camera to detect any water leaks or termite nests which may be inside the cavity.

Leaks are a major problem in your home not only do they cause fungal decay which can destroy your home but they offer a water supply to thirsty termites who will then snack on your house timbers.

Then on with the overalls and into the roof void for a thorough visual inspection and more tapping to check the integrity of your roofing timbers.
While we are still in our overalls we now go under the house for a visual inspection of your  sub-floor timbers paying particular attention to all wet areas and yet more tapping to again ensure the integrity of your structure.  Here we are looking for live termites, termite damage or any traces of termite entry.

Outside Included

That might be the house complete but then inspect  the garage, shed, trees, gardens, retaining walls, stumps, fences and logs. As you can see our inspections are very thorough.Pest Inspections - damaged fence
