Buying a new home is an exciting time, there is so much going on that it is easy to get caught up in planning paint colours, room structure and yard details and forget about pre purchase inspections. Sadly this can turn any dream home into a nightmare. Pre purchase inspections are a fast and affordable way to ensure your new property is pest free and ready for your family to more in to. Most pre purchase inspections only take 2 – 2.5 hours and will provide you with months of comfort.
Pest control companies offer pre purchase pest inspections that focus on termites and other silent pests. Termites hide in the foundations of a home and cause irreversible damage costing thousands of dollars. As they lurk in timber and wood they are a silent pest and leave no tell-tale signs until it is too late. Often the previous owners won’t even know they have termites or white ants in the home. Unlike spiders, rodents or cockroaches termites don’t show themselves. The only way you can be certain a property is completely pest free is by calling in a professional company.
Did you know there are 300 types of termites in Australia? Don’t let any of them into your Brisbane property.
Pre Purchase Pest Inspection Companies such as Osborne’s Pest Services are the experts in pest control and termite inspections. As a fully licensed and qualified company they ensure every property is termite free and remains that way for over 12 months. Bringing in an expert is the only way to ensure every inch of a property is pest free. Looking under the house isn’t enough; you need an exterminator that looks under the house, in the ceiling, the walls, the furniture, the decking, back garage and even the surrounding plant life. Pre purchase inspections cover more than just termites and also check for fleas, bed bugs, lice, rodents, wasps, cockroaches, moths, silver fish and even snakes!
