Twinspectors – Building and Pest Inspections Brisbane

Tips

At Twinspectors, we are just as dismayed by the discovery of termites as our clients are, which is why we strive to educate them on keeping these wily pests at bay. Through the years, we have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge when it comes to preventing termite infestations. Feel free to browse through these tips and put them to use, as necessary, in order to keep your home termite-free.

KEEP PLANTS AWAY FROM BUILDINGS

As lovely as a small garden may look right next to a house, the fact is that it can cover up termite activity and give the pests a free pass into your home. Keep gardens and vegetation a reasonable distance away from your home.

DO NOT DISTURB

If you think that you detect termite activity, resist the urge to take matters into your own hands. Disturbing the pests will only cause them to relocate, making inspectors’ jobs more difficult. They could also spread out the damage to other parts of the home.

KEEP TIMBER AWAY FROM THE HOME

Take care to remove any and all timber debris from around and under your home and its outbuildings. Remove old, dead tree stumps, too. All of these things can act as food sources for a termite colony. Store timber in a place that is well ventilated and dry.

BE CAUTIOUS WITH NEW ADDITIONS

All too often, additions to a home invite termite guests in. Be especially wary when building an addition that has a concrete-besides-timber design. A physical or chemical barrier should be laid down prior to building such additions.

KEEP MOISTURE AT BAY

If you have suspended floors in your home, make sure that they have plenty of ventilation. Otherwise, moisture can build up – and termites love moisture and humidity. Be sure to take care of leaking pipes immediately, and keep your eyes peeled for signs of poor drainage.

Sue and the team provide the most professional pest and building service in Brisbane. Twinspectors have assisted us with two pest and building reports in November this year. On both occasions the interaction from beginning to end was seamless. We cannot thank you enough.

Tony and his team from Twinspectors completed our Building & Pest Inspection for a home we were buying in July 2020. Tristy (front desk) was helpful in arranging the inspection and the team who came out were fantastic in talking me through the results of the inspection. As a person with no background in construction, they kept things simple for me yet provided me with valuable information. Tony was also great with post purchase pest management required. The team behind Twinspectors are professional, down to earth and are highly recommended.

We used Twinspectors for our building and pest inspection in January. We have been very happy with their services. They have been very professional. Both James (building) and Tony (pest) gave us a lot of details and information on the day and took time to discuss and answer all our questions. A few months later we contacted them again for some more questions and Tony did not hesitate to came back to our place a few times to follow up with us and to give us some more advices. Thanks Tony for such an amazing commitment. We highly recommend Twinspectors. They are fantastic!!!!
