Gladstone Termite Treatment
Gladstone Termite Protection and Control
Beautiful Gladstone doesn’t just attract tourists. The warmth and sunshine also attract termites. Termites cause extensive structural damage to buildings throughout Queensland, with 1 in 3 buildings suffering termite attacks in Australia. Even coastal communities need to be proactive when it comes to termites. That’s why you need to install a termite management system in your home before it’s too late.
Why termites are so destructive in homes around Gladstone
There are over 300 species of termites in Australia, but only some cause damage to homes in Gladstone.
Drywood termites, found mostly in Queensland are particularly damaging and can live without soil access. However, subterranean termites need soil access and are more widespread. Both types of termites tunnel into wooden beams in the building, weakening supports and the overall structure of your premise.
Timber can sound hollow when tapped and floors can sag. You may notice paint or plaster chipping off the building. Skirting boards or window frames are easily damaged. The outside of the timber may look fine. But the inside is weekend due to termites tunnelling through the wood.
Surprisingly, most homes in Queensland aren’t insured for termite damage. While insurance companies may insure your home for animal damage, such as a bird in the house, insect and rodent damage is very rarely covered. Homeowners usually don’t find out until they try to lodge a hefty claim.
Install a termite management system in your home
Termites are very hard to detect. By the time you see signs such as a sagging floor, hollow wood or fine sawdust, expensive structural damage is already done. Our technicians will inspect your property for signs of termites. They’ll then provide you with a thorough report on the condition of your property.
If there is evidence of termites our technicians will discuss a treatment plan. They may also give you advice on ways to prevent termites. Storing wood away from the house, clearing storage out from under your home and preventing moisture under the foundations are all important ways to prevent termite infestations.
Many older houses around Gladstone are at risk of termite damage due to exposed timber. Regular inspections by an experienced professional can prevent expensive building repairs to the overall structure.
