Annual Termite Inspection Cost

Annual termite inspections are a necessary part of protecting your home. However, many people hold off on getting an inspection because they are concerned about the cost. In truth, the cost of an annual termite inspection is nothing next to the dangers of a termite infestation.

We have written this blog so you can better understand what goes into the cost and why it is necessary.

Australian Standards recommends every Australian home should get a termite inspection a minimum of every 12 months.

Termite inspection information

Termite inspections are generally done once a year on the timber of your property. It is conducted on all accessible areas of the property.

A report is compiled for you with our findings and if damage from termites is found, we will provide you with treatment options.

What influences the annual termite inspection cost

The cost of the service starts at $250. However this cost can be influenced by the size of the property and how accessible the property is.

Termites can do serious damage to your home, as seen above.

The cost of doing nothing

While $250 a year is not a small sum, the cost of doing nothing is far steeper than the annual termite inspection cost could ever be.

For instance, termites can do major structural damage to your property. They love to eat away at the wooden frames of houses.  They can also chew walls hollow from the inside out and eat around door hinges.

Even steel frame houses are not immune from harm because termites travel up steel frames to find other wooden parts of your home.

If left unchecked, the damage from these pests can easily reach into the thousands of dollars.

Above all, the most important way to avoid termites is by being vigilant. By getting an annual check-up, you can avoid the risk of paying massive amounts to fix damage and get rid of large, built up nests. It is always easier to wipe out smaller nests.

Who to trust for annual termite inspections

Dedant Building and Pest Inspections specialise in finding and treating termite infestations. We use the latest technology and training to ensure that termites are found.

We treat termites using a chemical barrier. This barrier is made with Termidor, an chemical agent that wipes out the termites at the nest.

Unlike other chemical barriers, this one cannot be detected by termites, ensuring they don’t avoid it and are thus more likely to spread the poison.

For more information, check our website for information on Annual Termite Check and the Chemical Barrier.

Afterwards, these inspections are followed by an easy-to-follow report that includes pictures of the tell-tale signs of a termite infestation including damage and mudding.

Dedant services Brisbane, Logan, the Gold Coast, Moreton, Ipswich and the Scenic Rim.
