Identifying potential risk areas

Termites usually penetrate through tiny cracks and crevices in and under your house, and build their colony nest and tunnels underground. For this reason, it can be hard for the untrained eye to see evidence of termite activity before it’s too late.

During a termite and pest inspection, our professional inspector will identify potential risk areas such as bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens with high moisture levels, which are enticing to termites. Crawl spaces, subflooring, and improperly connected hot water systems or air conditioning units can also serve as entry points for termites.

Why regular inspections are important

Early Detection:

Regular pest and termite inspections play a pivotal role in the early detection of these unwelcome intruders. These tiny pests often remain hidden until they have already caused significant damage. Inspections conducted by a professional inspector aid in identifying signs of infestation, such as droppings, nests, or structural damage, before the problem escalates. Early detection allows for immediate action, minimising potential damage and reducing the overall cost of repairs.

Prevention of Property Damage:

Pests and termites are not merely unsightly; they can wreak havoc on structures and belongings. Termites, in particular, are notorious for silently devouring wooden structures, compromising their integrity over time. By regularly scheduling inspections, homeowners can detect these stealthy destroyers and implement appropriate measures to safeguard their property. Additionally, inspections help identify other vulnerabilities like cracks or holes that can serve as entry points for pests, enabling homeowners to promptly address these issues.

Health and Safety Concerns:

Pests and termites pose threats not only to a property’s structural integrity but also to the health and well-being of its occupants. Many pests carry diseases and can contaminate food and surfaces, thereby posing health risks to humans and pets. For instance, cockroaches can trigger asthma and allergies, while rodents can spread pathogens through their urine and droppings. Regular inspections ensure a pest-free environment, reducing the risk of disease transmission and creating a healthier living space for residents.

Cost Savings:

While some homeowners may hesitate to invest in regular inspections, the long-term cost savings they provide are substantial. Timely detection of pest and termite infestations allows for swift and targeted treatments, preventing extensive damage that would necessitate expensive repairs. By investing in regular inspections, homeowners can nip potential problems in the bud, avoiding the need for costly remediation and preserving the value of their property.

Peace of Mind:

Regular pest and termite inspections offer an often overlooked benefit—peace of mind for homeowners. Knowing that professionals regularly inspect their property and can detect and address any pest or termite issues provides reassurance. This peace of mind allows homeowners to relax and enjoy their homes without worrying about the unseen damage that pests can cause.


Our highly professional building inspector will visit the property accompanied with modern detection equipment and do a thorough visual inspection in accordance with the Australian Standard AS 4349.1-2007.

The inspector will then compile a building inspection report within 24 hours. This detailed report will inform you of any building defects including major structural defects, items requiring maintenance and the general condition of the property.

Items of concern can be discussed with inspector Jeff Manwaring directly. We encourage you to attend the inspection on the day so that we can discuss any potential issues.

With this knowledge you can make an informed decision on the purchase of the property with complete peace of mind. Contact us today to arrange an inspection.
