To fully appreciate and understand the necessity of having a pest inspection you need to consider what is involved, how much might it cost and the importance.
For most people buying a house is the single largest investment they will ever make and yet the same people neglect the fact that the property may be jeopardy due to a home invader that in the majority of cases stays hidden until the damage is done; the invaders are termites.
Termites are terribly destructive but what is even worse, they go about their business undetected, they can do a great deal of damage to the fabric of your home before you come to the horrible realisation that they are even there. Once they have started, by the time they are detected it usually takes several thousand dollars to eliminate them and repair the damage they caused.
With full knowledge that any home; new or old, can be infested by termites it makes a great deal of sense to arrange pest inspection as part of your due diligence. The great thing about a pest inspection is it is a process that is beneficial to both the buyer and the seller. The seller is in a much better position to aggressively market the home and the buyer knows that he or she is contemplating a purchase which will not give headaches in the future, this is even more so when the inspection has been carried out by a well known company.
The climate in Australia is conducive to pests, there are numerous study reports available that indicate a full twenty five percent of Australian homes will have a pest problem at one time or another and in the majority of cases the pests are termites. With this kind of incidence it is imperative that a buyer insist that pest inspection is undertaken. Good pest control companies can easily and inexpensively identify any threats and just as easily take care of the problem.
When you understand the necessity of having a pest inspection you can also understand why this important task should e undertaken by professionals. Obviously professionals have superior technology at their disposal; they can fully utilize such high tech tools as thermal imaging. It is not as if pest inspection is time consuming, it is not. A professional, equipped with all the right tools can complete a whole house inspection in less than an hour; time well spent to ensure that the house is safe from infestation.
Understanding the necessity to have a pest inspection is half the battle, the other half is having the inspection carried out by Pink Pest Services, Sydney’s pest control specialist.
