Have you had your home inspected recently?
Live termites located during termite inspection to this unprotected dwelling in Sunnybank Hills.
We identified & destroyed the infestation. If this activity was not detected & destroyed, these termites could have destroyed this family's home.
It's important you understand that any termite proofing completed during the construction phase of a structure does NOT protect the structure from termites completely. It only mitigates the risk of termites entering the structure from exposed points under the slab or subfloor. Also, depending on the termite proofing products used, these will degrade over time losing their effectiveness.
The use of building materials like hardwood, cypress or even steel will offer some resistance, but will not prevent an infestation from occurring
This is why we recommend that you have your property inspected every 6 months (with no preventative measure in place) or 12 months (with a preventative measure in place, as per the Aust Standard). Termites are a very real issue in South East Queensland & property owners need to invest some time in considering a "proactive" approach when protecting their property's from Subterranean Termite Infestation.
Many property owners get caught out with a "reactive" approach, which is very risky & can be quite costly when termites are found.
The eradication & repair costs are usually in the thousands of dollars, not to mention the property would have a documented history of termite attack which could have a negative impact on the property's worth in the event it was placed on the market to sell.
Termite attacks happen to 1 in 3 properties every year, which is one of the many reasons why your insurer won't insure you for termite damage!
Don't take the risk any longer & engage Stephen's Pest Control/Termite Rescue, South East Queensland's only Master Termite Specialist.
