Also known as white ants, termites are a common problem in Melbourne, with an infestation able to silently destroy your home. Fortunately, Fumapest Termite & Pest Control can provide termite inspection services for homes and businesses looking to prevent the devastating damage caused by these pests.
The Australian Standard AS:3660 recommends that a termite inspection be carried out no less than every 12 months. If you’re wondering “where can I find a company to carry out a termite inspection near me?”, turn to Fumapest. Our termite specialists can provide a regular termite check with a comprehensive termite inspection process to ensure your building is free of termites and other problematic pests.
Our termite inspections are thorough visual inspections which cover accessible internal and external areas of the property using termite-detection equipment such as FLIR E6 Thermal Imaging, Termatrac T3i, Tramex Plus Moisture Meter, Tap Sounding Rod, and Extech Infra Red techniques.
In addition to termite damage, our pest inspection technicians are constantly looking for things that could cause problems, including:
A consultation will cover these potential risks and many more, with comprehensive termite inspection services to identify and detect any termite activity. A typical termite inspection of an average-size Melbourne home will take approximately 1-1.5 hours.
All of our termite inspection services are carried out according to Australian standards 3660.2-2000. You will also be provided with a written Visual Timber Pest Inspection & Report, in accordance with AS 4349.3. This will contain recommendations and quotes, providing you with the best solutions for your situation.
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.
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.
Evidence of termite activity can include squeaky and buckling floorboards, loose tiles, jammed doors and windows, piles of discarded wings, droppings, and mud tubes.
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.
Termite inspections cost between $250 and $350 for average-sized properties, and closer to $500 for larger properties.
An astonishing one in three homes is susceptible to termites, causing millions of dollars of damage every year in Victoria alone. Even worse, termite damage isn’t covered by most insurance policies.
A comprehensive termite inspection conducted by Fumapest Termite & Pest Control is the first step to ensure your home is safe from the devastating effects of termites.
