Buying a new home? Don’t skip the pre-purchase pest inspection

Pre-purchase pest inspection

Buying a new home can be very overwhelming as there are so many things to consider; from finding the right home, to negotiating an agreeable price and organising the finance, let alone the logistics of moving. Amongst all this chaos, it’s important not to forget to have a pre-purchase pest inspection done by a licensed timber pest inspector alongside the building inspection. A pest inspection will reveal any seen or unseen termite damage and show the potential for a termite attack down the road.

A pest inspection carried out by a licensed timber pest inspector will give you all the details you need to know before purchasing any property. At Results Home Services we back up all of our termite inspections with a thermal imaging camera, moisture meter and dongle at no extra cost to you. We consider these tools important aids for our fully qualified and experienced inspectors to gain a clear insight into where the property is at and what factors are placing it at risk of a termite attack.

Brisbane pest inspection - prepurchase

In the 25 years we have been protecting, inspecting and treating Brisbane

homes for pests like subterranean termites, ants, cockroaches, rodents and bed bugs, we have heard the nightmarish stories of people who had decided to forgo an “expensive” pest inspection only to discover a termite infestation after they had moved in. Remember, it may be your dream home but an unknown termite infestation could turn your dream home into your worst nightmare. Had they just paid to have a thorough pest inspection done they could have saved themselves thousands of dollars in termite treatments and termite damage repairs.

At Results Termite Treatments and Pest Management Services we use the best and latest equipment available to make sure our experienced technicians have all the tools they need to thoroughly inspect your home. They will check roof voids, sub floors, surrounding gardens, internal walls and the external perimeter looking for signs of active or inactive termite activity in or around your home. We then follow up with an easy to read 21 page report with all our technician’s findings and recommendations. These could be simple things like modifying garden beds so they don’t sit so close to weep holes or removing stumps to more complex recommendations like repairing leaks or resolving moisture issues. After Results Termite Treatments and Pest Management Services inspects your potential new home, you’ll know exactly where the property stands and whether there are any termite issues that need to be addressed.

Results Results Termite Treatments and Pest Management Services has been looking after Brisbane homes for over 25 years so you can trust we have the knowledge and experience to offer you the best advice on your new home or investment.
