Pest Inspections on the Gold Coast
Why is a Pest Inspection Important?
Pest inspections are important because infestations of certain pests such as termites and white ants can lead to structural damage in houses or buildings if untreated.
As with most things, the earlier the detection, the better off you will be.
A visual pest inspection is an assessment of pest activity within and around the property you are looking at purchasing, leasing or owning.
The inspector will be able to advise you if any future activity is likely or if treatment needs to be done.
Thermal Imaging Pest Inspections
At DR Inspects we include thermal imaging as part of every inspection.
Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect infestations that would normally be missed by more conventional inspection methods.
It’s vital to get a pest inspection completed prior to purchasing a property to save yourself from the future trouble and expense that can come with an infestation by pests such as termites.
Active termites can cause major damage and attract high repair costs which are not covered by any insurance companies.
A pest inspection is not only about identifying termites, it is also performed to locate rats, mice, ants and other pests.
A Pest Inspection Takes About An Hour
A qualified pest inspector spends about half an hour to an hour in a normal sized house to cautiously examine and identify the whole structure, checking out the interior, exterior, sub floor, roof void and other parts of the house where pests and rodents like to hide.
Be proactive rather than reactive and phone David from DR Inspects on 0421 641 301 to see if your home is at risk, or already has been infected by termites or other pests.
We can also arrange a pest spray treatment to prevent future damages from occurring if necessary. DR Inspects Gold Coast are here to help!
