What is a commercial building and pest inspection?
A commercial building and pest inspection is a comprehensive visual assessment of a property to determine its current condition. It is a combination of two inspections, a building inspection and a ptimeber pest inspection.
The building inspection looks for major and minor building defects, safety hazards and anything that may compromise the occupancy (a.k.a livability) of the building. Common building defects found at commercial properties include structural cracking, poor drainage, rust, dampness and driveways in poor condition.
The timber pest inspection checks for any evidence of termites or termite damage. Termites don’t discriminate between commercial and residential properties. If the conditions are right, termites are just as likely to invade a commercial property over a residential property. During the timber pest inspection, the pest inspector will also check the property with a thermal imaging camera and moisture meter. As termites are highly attracted to damp areas.
