    The Termite Inspection Process

    • Signs of poor drainage and ventilation
    • Leaking downpipes and guttering
    • Broken plumbing
    • Mould
    • Rot

    Frequently Asked Questions

    When Should I Get an Inspection?

    We recommend getting a termite inspection as soon as you notice signs of termites in or around the property. This will allow you to remove them as soon as possible and mitigate the damage, resulting in a lower repair bill.

    How Often Should I Get My Property Inspected?

    It’s recommended that you organise termite inspection services at least once every 12 months. This can prevent infestations from flourishing and protect your property.

    What Are the Signs of Termites?

    Evidence of termite activity can include squeaky and buckling floorboards, loose tiles, jammed doors and windows, piles of discarded wings, droppings, and mud tubes.

    Can Termites Go Away On Their Own?

    No, they can’t. Termites consume wood and will feed on your property for years until the damage becomes extreme and your safety is at risk. A termite check can identify these pests before the extent of damage becomes severe.

    What Do Termite Inspections Cost?

    Termite inspections cost between $250 and $350 for average-sized properties, and closer to $500 for larger properties.
