Termites need Moisture to Survive, so
Leaking showers attract termites, TPC Building and Pest Inspections do a LOT of building and pest inspections on the Gold Coast. We do pre-sale inspections for sellers wanting to be sure that nothing will stand in the way of a straightforward sale.
TPC carry out pre-purchase building and pest inspections for buyers wanting to be sure that the home they are wanting to buy is not only built soundly but is pest free.
We see a lot of termite damage and 2 common causes of termites getting into the tasty timbers your home is built with are 1. organic matter such as timber and plants piled up against the side of the home and 2. leaking bathrooms, kitchens and laundries – in fact anywhere a leak can be found such as in the roof or gutters.
If you see signs of water leaks anywhere in the home it is absolutely critical that you get the leak fixed and check for termite activity using a licensed operator like TPC Building & Pest.
Water dripping onto timber softens up the timber making it easy for termites to find their way in and set up home. If this timber is in your home you can very quickly end up with a massive termite damage bill.
A regular termite inspection reduces the risks of long term termite infestations. We highly recommend that all homes in termite areas such as the Gold Coast install a termite protection system to protect again an attack, call us today – have a chat with Luke – Call 07 55762602.
