Gold Coast mapTermite Inspections Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is a known termite hot-spot due to our warm and humid climate. Termites like to live in warm, damp and dark places making the majority of properties on the Gold Coast are highly susceptible to termite infestation, especially older properties.

What does a termite inspection involve?

Sub floor inspection

Our timber pest inspections involve a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of the property looking for evidence of termite activity and/or termite workings or damage, timber decay, moisture detection and indentifying conditions conducive to termite attack. The areas that will be inspected include the interior and exterior of the building as well as accessible roof cavities and subfloor areas.

Termites tend to avoid open air and bright lights, and as a result, their colonies are typically underground, out of sight or within wood materials so more often than not, termite damage is hidden away from sight. For this reason, it's important to get a professional pest or termite inspector who knows the common areas to check for termite damage or conditions conducive to termites.

Our inspectors also utilise special equipment to help detect termite activity and damage, including thermal imaging cameras and moisture meters.

The average Pest Inspection takes approximately 60 minutes for a thorough inspection, depending on the size and conditions (e.g. clutter; storage of personal items, etc.) of the home and property.

Following the termite inspection:

Your termite inspection report

The findings of the inspection will then be noted in your pest report which will be issued via email the following morning, including any recommendations for effective termite treatments, such as termite barriers, in-ground termite baiting systems, chemical termite treatments and annual termite control services.

Termite treatment options

Many recently constructed or renovated homes have a physical termite barrier installed. However, if the property doesn't have pre-construction termite protection, there are a number of other termite management options available.

What are the signs of termite damage?

It is almost impossible for a timber pest inspector to visually identify an active termite infestation just by looking at the finished surface of a wall or trim. For this reason, a professional inspector will have a number of specialist tools on hand to help detect termite activity, as well as conditions conducive to termite attacks. This includes a thermal imaging camera and moisture meter. 

Early detection is key to preventing substantial structural damage to a property and which could end up costing a fortune in repairs. 

How to reduce the risk of termite attack 

Apart from proper maintenance and care of the property, annual termite inspections and an up to date termite management plan in place, there are some additional measures property owners can take to reduce the likelihood of termite damage. 

Essentially, the fewer conditions conducive to termite infestation the better. The most common conditions include: 

What owners can do to prevent these conducive conditions includes:

What happens if termites go untreated?

If a termite infestation is not treated, it could (quite literally) being your house down.

The problem is, many people don't realise they've got a termite problem until significant damage has been done. If you can identify a termite problem early, it can save you thousands of dollars in repairs to your home.

The easiest way to identify a termite problem in your home is to book in for a termite inspection every couple of years.

This is totally worth doing since termite damage is NOT covered as part of any standard homeowners insurance package.
