Why A Pest Inspection is Important for Property Owners

A pest inspection is an integral part of purchasing and owning a property, which is why it is also important to find the right person to do the job. With a reliable company that will help you with property inspections and addressing possible pest infestations, you can protect yourself and your investment.

How Pest Inspectors Can Help You?

Pest inspectors will conduct a thorough investigation of your property and be on the lookout for traces of pests, such as termites, cockroaches, spiders or ants that may be dwelling in your home.

At Twinspectors Building and Pest Inspections, we take this job seriously and ensure that all areas of your house are covered during the inspection. This includes the inspection of the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom and dining area, as well as exterior parts of your home.

In addition, the two-man team from Twinspectors Building and Pest Inspections won’t just look for signs of possible infestations, but also oversee risks for potential problems. To do this, we will survey your surroundings and take note of areas that can be used by pests as entry points. A complete report of the findings and recommended repairs or interventions will then be provided.

The Risks of Not Opting for Pest Inspections

While the necessity of pest inspections has always been reiterated, it can’t be avoided that some buyers miss out on having a property investigated prior to the purchase. Most of the time, it is due to the rush of securing a great offer – or so what seems to be a great offer.

Unfortunately, it is not until they have closed the deal and settled in their new home that they find out about the problems with pests and other building issues. By then, the damage could already mean expensive costs of repair.

So basically, the absence of a pre-sale pest inspection can mean an additional burden on your part – both emotionally and financially.

How Often Should You Have Your Property Inspected?

Pests are on the continuous search for nests. They grow and build their colonies and, as they do, they expand their nesting grounds. Because of this, there is no guarantee that if you currently don’t have infestations in your home, you never will. Or, that if the pests in your home have already been eradicated, there won’t be other types of pests that will try to invade your property.

For this reason, it just makes sense to have a regular schedule for pest inspections. We usually recommend that our clients have a routine property inspection conducted at least once a year. This makes it easier if there are infestations, as the pests can be eradicated immediately before they cause further damage.
