Termites can be a property owner's nightmare. We all know someone who has had termites or currently has termites on their property.
Termites are widespread throughout Queensland and can be found in trees/stumps, retaining walls, fences and gardens. Termites become a real issue for property owners when they decide to move to another feeding source and attack "YOUR HOME"!
Some species are extremely aggressive and can cause tens of thousands of dollars of damage to a property within a very short period of time if left undetected. However you can reduce the risk by implementing a termite treatment program, and having regular pest inspections carried out by a licensed timber pest inspector. This will not prevent termites but early detection will reduce the extent of damage they may cause.
Any recommendations within a pest and termite inspection report should be carried out as a matter of urgency. Inspect My Home use thermal imaging technology combined with standard inspection tools in order to complete a thorough inspection of your property.

Using the latest state-of-the-art thermal imaging technology combined with standard inspection tools and techniques, Inspect My Home provides you a broader and more comprehensive assessment of the premises.
Thermal imaging cameras will allow the inspector to identify temperature variations with in the wall cavities and concealed areas which are not visible to the naked eye. A trained inspector can analyze an image in seconds to identify possible termite activity or risk areas. Thermal imaging cameras are an effective tool to enable inspectors to quickly and easily identify possible termite risk areas that require further investigation. Such areas of concern may be identified in wall linings, floors, ceilings etc.
Having located where termites may be active, it is then necessary to confirm their presence by further investigation. We do this by looking inside a concealed area with a boroscope, snap vent or small closed circuit video cam.
