Found Termites In Your Home?
Here's what you
need to do ....
I have found termites in my home, what should I do?
First of all, please don't panic, you are not alone......
Four out of five homes in Brisbane will have a termite attack at some point. Call us on 3823 2500 anytime/any day, we will get back to you as soon as possible and organise an appointment to inspect what you have found.
Now breath and walk away!
Please resist the urge to strike back at the termites with every can of fly, bug or deodorant you have in the house. Just understand that from the time you have found termites to the time we come out to inspect the active termites, there will be very little increase in the damage they may have already done. The reason we need you to resist the urge to disturb the termites is that by disturbing them, you will more than likely, make them flee back to their nest, therefore making identification and treatment harder for our termite technician.
Our Step by Step process of what we do when you have Termites
1. Inspection and Identification
On arrival, we will inspect the location/s that you have found termites. We will then identify the termite species - this will help in formulating a termite treatment plan. Before treating active termites, we will always recommend a full termite inspection to locate a possible point of entry and other possible termite attack sites. This will help in offering the correct termite treatment options.
2. Termite Management Plan
Once the active termites have been treated, and their activity has ceased, it is advised to implement a termite management programme. We will advise on the best termite treatment plan that is specially tailored for your home and your requirements. To protect your house from termite attacks in the future, it is necessary to have a termite plan in place; otherwise, termites from another nest will happily use the same point of entry that the last termites built. Also, if your home has no current termite protection, termites may find another point of entry. To fully protect your home, we need to shut down all possible termite entry points. Based on the termite inspection that we carry out on your home, we will be able to recommend to you the best and most suitable termite management plan for your home.
3. Be proactive with annual termite inspections
Once we have your termite management plan in place around your home, you can now have full peace of mind that your home is protected and fully covered by our insurance. To ensure that you stay fully protected, it is a requirement by our insurance company that your home has at least a yearly termite/warranty inspection. This is recommended to ensure that throughout the year, the treated zone around your home has not been damaged. It also ensures that no other factors such as a leaking pipe, build-up of soil or a new termite nest in your garden will affect the treatment zone.
4. Termite Warranty & Free Call-out Service
On completion of the installation of your termite management program, your home will be automatically covered by our 12-month free call out service. This means that if you have any concerns regarding termites, just call us, and we will come out and check what you have found for free. Should we feel that further treatment is required, we will re-treat free of charge until the issue is dealt with.
5. Protecting your home for the future
For continuation of this free service, all you need to do is ensure that your annual warranty inspection is completed within a month of the anniversary of your installed termite management program. Don’t worry, we will always give you a call before your termite warranty inspection is due. This is the guaranteed service we have been providing homeowners for over 27 years. As a trusted termite company, we work hard to build a relationship with you, that will give you the peace of mind that your home will always be professionally cared for.
