Then they will check the exterior of your property before moving inside where they inspect roof voids and subfloor timber under your house (if accessible) for evidence of a current termite infestation or existing termite damage on your Perth property.

Why are Perth Termite Inspections 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, resulting in hundreds to thousands of dollars worth of repairs. According to the CSIRO, 1 in 3 Australian homes will be affected by timber pest activity, including termites and white ants, at some point which is why it is crucial to get a professional timber pest inspection completed regularly and prior to purchasing a new house. Refer to AS4349.3-2010 for more details.

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