Termites are the silent eater causing damage to homes and commercial buildings all around Australia. Timbers such as architraves, skirting boards, doors, windows and cupboards can be infested with termites and pose substantial repair bills for owners. Repair costs can involve new timbers, plastering and painting, new windows and doors and in some case installing entire new sheeting for walls in a room. These costs far outweigh the cost of an annual timber pest inspection and the peace of mind it brings property owners.
Our subtropical climate in Brisbane means it is the perfect conditions for termites. With wood as their main food source, termites are greatly attracted to areas with high levels of moisture and humidity. Australian Standards recommends an annual termite inspection to ensure damage and potential termite risks can be identified as soon as possible. Sandgate Pest Control will inspect all accessible timbers that are in a structure or surrounding grounds inside the fence line of the property or up to 30 metres from the building. A full visual inspection means property owners receive expert advice on the property from timber pest attack along with up-to-date information on the current state of the property. Only an annual timber pest inspection gives the necessary information to determine any termite activity or damage at the property.
