To answer your question, here’s 4 facts every home owner should know:
Fact 1: Termites cause more damage in Australia each year than fire and flood combined.
Fact 2: Your building and contents insurance will not cover Termite Damage.
Fact 3: In the vast majority of cases, termite damage is not visible until significant damage has already occurred.
Fact 4: Your builders warranty will be void if you do not maintain annual Termite inspections.
Now keep in mind that you can easily see or smell if a fire or flood has damaged your home. Unfortunately, it’s not so simple with Termite damage. Termites are stealthy little critters who specialise in eating houses out from the inside out, leaving no visible signs in your home until significant damage has already occurred.
Most home owners would not be able to sleep at night if they did not have a current building and content insurance policy protecting their investment. Yet Queensland homes are much more likely to be damaged by Termites. Therefore we encourage our customers to think of their annual termite inspection as an insurance policy against significant termite damage.
Yes, insects will always come inside, however they will soon die as they cross over the chemical that we have put down. This is why it is crucial to use the right type of chemical that leaves a long residual for long term protection.
Spotting termites can be very difficult, and they can live undetected in hollow doors and wall voids for many years. Occasionally, you may be able to spot floor damage (blistering or sagging in the floor), unexplained cracks in the walls or ceiling, sticking windows or doors, or weakened hollow-sounding wood.
Generally, the older your home, the more likely you are to be prone to termites as they were built before termite-resistant frames and termite barriers during pre-construction became standard for new homes, but we have encountered new homes that were treated incorrectly that had termite infestations.
The best way to avoid termite infestation is to have a professional assess your home on a yearly basis.
