Why Book A Termite Inspector Gold Coast?
Gold Coast termite inspections serve a number of purposes and as such, they can be conducted for a variety of reasons. Outlined below, are several of the more pertinent situations in which a termite inspection would be prudent.
#2 Potential termite activity
When you suspect that there is termite activity within your property, you are likely to want definitive confirmation in the form of a professional Gold Coast termite inspection. We are able to deliver such an assessment and this is important for a number of reasons. Foremost, it is imperative that the presence of any termites within your property is addressed at the soonest possible point in time. The longer termites are left unmanaged, the more extensive and established their nests become. This invariably means that the damage they are able to inflict upon the foundations of your home and any timber fittings therein, will increase substantially. In fact, the more invasive and aggressive of termite species have been known to damage timber foundations to an extent such that the building is rendered unliveable. Whilst this is the more extreme of potential outcomes, it is a distinct possibility and the first step to eliminating the prospect of this altogether, is arranging a professional termite inspection.
#3 Confirmed termite activity in neighbouring Gold Coast properties
If you have become aware that there is termite activity in properties that neighbour your own, then it is strongly advisable that you conduct a thorough check of your property and enlist the aid of a professional Gold Coast termite inspector. Termites are capable of constructing extensive and intricate subterranean nests and these networks will often transcend the boundaries of any property. There have been documented incidents in which termite colonies have spread within one property and infested its surrounding areas in an alarmingly short period of time. This behavioural propensity, when coupled with their subterranean colonisation patterns, means that termites have the capacity to invade and damage your home or business from bordering properties without detection. It is for this reason that annual or biannual termite inspections are advised, however the need for an inspection of this nature will increase markedly upon the detection of nearby termite colonisation.
