Why Regular Termite Inspections are Crucial in Australia

Pests are always unwanted, and they’re a downright nuisance too. Termites however, are a different story. The damage that they do can easily run into thousands of dollars. One out of every four homes in Australia will experience a termite infestation at some point, and with household insurance not covering this kind of damage, it is vital that you take preventative measures. Regular termite inspections can stop you from having to worry, not to mention that they can also help you to put an end to the issue before serious damage is caused.

Termites are Quick

Termites, although small, can easily eat through a house frame in a few months. It’s not hard to imagine the kind of damage they can do to your home if you leave your infestation unchecked. Even when the structure looks intact from the outside, an infestation can make your property unsafe, so it is vital that you carry out annual inspections to make sure that you have not experienced any termite damage over the year.

Termites aren’t Obvious

Termites might cause a lot of damage, but they are hard to detect. This is a deadly combination because they’re not easy to spot and even if you intentionally look for an infestation, you may find it difficult to find one. For this reason, it is wise for you to hire a professional so that they can ensure that your home is totally free from these pesky insects.

Termites are Hard to Stop without Professional Help

It is possible for you to stop a termite infestation in its tracks if you hire a professional. You can look out for things such as sunken tiles, soft architraves, and even uneven painted surfaces, but only a professional can put an end to your woes and give you a definitive answer as to whether or not you have an infestation on your hands.

Termites can Cost Thousands in Damages

As mentioned above, can easily eat through a house frame in a few months. For this reason, it’s not hard to see how they could cause unbelievable structural damage to your home. Just leaving an infestation for a week can have dramatic consequences, and annual inspections are really the only way for you to make sure that this doesn’t happen.

Furthermore, with the Australian winter season upon us, we can keep an eye out while we are doing the inspection for rodents, such as rats and mice. They may be trying to make their way into your home to escape from the cold. With this type of pest, there are some tell-tale signs that you can look out for, such as droppings and food being scattered on the floor, but the only way to eradicate the issue would be for you to hire a professional in Central Coast.

PestGuard treated our house for ants and unlike any other company we'd used, the ant problem was solved within days.

Trent and Shane were very careful to ensure the quality of the spray at our unit complex. When I queried the rain we unfortunately had not long after the spray, they came back the same day and resprayed the affected areas to ensure the quality of work.
