Pre Purchase Inspection
Buying or Selling a home?
As a Brisbane pest controller, we spend a fair amount of time undertaking termite inspections, given the humid weather in Queensland. Our termite exterminator team will inspect all areas of your yard, tree stumps and gardens right through to the fences; external walls to house; internal areas, walls and subfloors, roof void, out buildings and garages. With our Pre Purchase Inspection service will identify damage or areas conducive to termite attack.
If you’re buying a new home or for your peace of mind, use Pest Inspection service to ensure that no nasty little creatures move in before you do! Eclipse Pest Control works with reputable building inspectors, our professional pest controllers perform timber and pest inspection and will supply you with a detailed report. In this inspection, we also search for timber decay/fungi and wood borers. Fungi usually resides in poorly ventilated sub-floors, below wet areas of home, exterior timbers and areas that retain water in the soil. Fungal decay is attractive to termites, so it’s important to rid this to prevent future termite attack.
Pre Purchase Inspection to identify and prevent any pest activity that may causing damages to the structure of the property you’re looking to buy.
Termites can attack any structure. Periodic maintenance should include measures to minimise possibilities of infestation in and around a property. Factors that may lead to infestation from termites include:
- Situations where the edge of the concrete slab is covered by soil or garden debris.
- Filled areas, areas with less than 400mm clearance.
- Foam insulation at foundations.
- Poor drainage, leaking pipes, damp areas, form-work timbers, scrap timber, tree stumps, mulch, tree branches touching the structure, wood rot and timber retaining walls.
