Gladstone Building and Pest / Pool Inspections
Termite & Pest Inspections Gladstone
Termites are everywhere in Queensland
They cause serious damage costing home owners thousands of dollars in repairs and resulting in the loss of re-sale value to homes that have a history of past damage.
Gladstone Building and Pest/Pool Inspections will determine the presence of wood destroying insects such as termites, borers and wood decaying fungi.
We use Thermal Camera Technology to help detect these insects in addition to the Australian Standard 4349.3- 1998 and AS 3660
A Timber Pest Report will not only detect and identify the pests but will provide a maintenance plan so you can prevent future attacks and ensure that your investment is secure.
Tools used with the Timber Pest Inspection
Probe/Tapping Device – The probe is used to tap the architraves, skirtings, window reveals and frames, door jams and other timbers for termite damage.
Moisture Meter – Termites live in a high moisture environment so a moisture meter can pick up these areas, they are also used to locate shower leaks, water penetration to walls and ceiling from external sources
Thermal Image Camera – A Thermal camera is used to scan the walls for ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ spots, areas that contain moisture / possible termite infestation
