Termite Pest Inspection

All of our inspectors use state-of-the-art equipment designed to identify pests without us having to leave marks or holes in the property.

What's involved in a Termite Pest Inspection

Our experienced inspectors will start by inspecting the yard of your property, looking at wooden fences, trees and logs for any signs of termite activity in the yard. Then they will check the exterior of your property before moving inside where they inspect in your roof void framing and subfloor timber under your house (if accessible) for evidence of a current termite infestation or existing termite damage.

Other key areas inspected for termites include:
  • Architraves
  • Door and window frames
  • Skirting boards
  • Walls
  • Cabinetry
  • Moisture testing
  • Roof frame
  • Floors

Why it's important

A single termite colony is made up of millions of termites that can cause serious damage to your property in a matter of months. According to the CSIRO, 1 in 3 Australian homes will be affected by termites or white ants at some point which is why it is crucial to check for termite damage regularly and before purchasing.

If you are purchasing a property, we recommend our Combined Inspection which includes our Termite Pest Inspection with a Structural Inspection. This will arm you with all the information you need to confidently purchase.

We provide detailed reports with all of our inspections.
