The Importance Of Getting An Annual Termite And Pest Inspection
Many homeowners often find themselves asking whether they should be getting yearly termite and pest inspections. The truth of the matter is that it is not a necessity, but it’s recommended that you get a pest inspection at least once per year. This is recommended by the pest management industry experts according to Australian standards. It is particularly important for homes that are located in mainland Australia get inspected regularly due to the high risk of getting termites. If you live in Tasmania, you have a much lower chance of experiencing termite attacks on your home.
The reasons these standards exist is to help home owners and termite control experts to manage the spread of termites within the home and surrounding buildings.
We will now look at a few critical reasons why you should get regular termite and pest inspections.
- Termites are the silent destroyers of homes. So, to prevent this from happening, regular inspections are necessary.
- Termites will degrade your home and eat your equity.
- If you don’t carry out pest inspections once a year, then this may cause some of your building insurance to become void.
- Termite attacks can lead to structural damage to your home. Subterranean termites attack the structural timber in homes which causes the timber to lose their ability to their job – supporting the home. Therefore, if these termites are left to their own devices, they can seriously damage your home and compromise its structural integrity.
If you don’t have termite barriers in place, once an inspection is done, the pest technician will recommend some termite management options. These will depend on the results of the inspection since different homes require different forms and types of protection.
Once you get this done, you will finally have peace of mind.
