    Termite Inspection in Melbourne & Victoria

    A professional termite inspection is recommended at least once a year for homeowners in mainland Australia, as part of a termite management plan to protect your property.

    Of course, if you’re worried your home is under termite attack, a comprehensive termite inspection needs to be carried out immediately.

    IMPORTANT NOTE:

    If you think you have termites, don’t disturb them and don’t spray them with insecticide!

    This only frightens them from the area but doesn’t eliminate the problem and it makes it more difficult for a termite professional to work out what is going on and to carry out a termite treatment.

    If you’re worried you might have termites just give us a call!

    What our customers say…

    The Termite Inspection Process

    As a minimum, termite inspections need to be carried out according to Australian Standards AS:3660. However, at Termites VIC we also inspect for borers and wood decay, according to AS 4349.3 Timber Pest Inspections, to make sure we inspect for and report on any timber pests that could be attacking your property (not just termites).

    The termite inspection is a visual inspection to detect 3 main issues:

    • Signs of termite or borer activity
    • Any termite, borer or timber decay damage
    • Conditions or construction faults that may make a termite, borer or timber decay attack more likely
    What areas do we inspect?
    • Land within the property boundary, within 50 m of the main building, looking at trees, fencing, landscaping elements and any out-buildings
    • Building exterior
    • All rooms within the house
    • Sub-floor (if present)
    • Roof void
    • Garage

    The Termite Inspection Report

    Our comprehensive reports are multi-page reports with photos, according to AS 4349.3 and include:

    • Identify any timber pests present (termites, borers, timber decay)
    • Details of any visual evidence of current and/or past timber pest activity
    • An assessment of any damage that is visible
    • A thorough assessment of the vulnerability of your property to timber pest attack
    • Recommendations to fix issues and improve conditions around the property to make a termite attack less likely
    • A timber pest management plan (if necessary), to provide long lasting termite protection for your property

    We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the findings in the report.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Termite Inspections

    How much do termite inspections cost?

    As standard home insurance does not provide cover for termite damage, and termite damage is more likely than fire, flood or other natural disaster combined, it is important to consider a termite inspection as part of your home insurance activities.
