Pest Inspections BrisbaneWhen you’re thinking of buying a residential or commercial property, it’s vital to have a pest inspection carried out by an industry professional.  These type of pre-purchase inspections are highly recommended by those in the real estate industry, as well as banks and other lenders, as they can help to give you a clearer picture of any potential structural issues with the property before signing on the dotted line.

A pest inspection should be conducted to gauge the levels of pest activity on the property, to look for any termite damage, and to review the building’s current pest control measures.  It’s a frightening reality that as many as one in five homes in Australia can be affected by termites.  This number can increase depending on the location of the property, with homes or businesses in warm, humid climates being particularly susceptible to the pests.  The threat doesn’t just come from termites either, as there are a range of issues that can negatively impact the timber structures in your property including fungi and wood borers.

Pre purchase inspections pest-ex

Generally pest inspections are either conducted before you make an offer on a property or during the normal cooling off period that follows after you exchange contracts.  During this time you can call off the sale by giving written notice, and it’s important to have a thorough inspection conducted to ensure you’re not walking into a money pit or a long term headache.

When you contact Pest Ex for a pre purchase pest inspection, we’ll schedule a time that is most convenient to you.  The inspection will take a few hours to complete, and our qualified timber inspectors will examine the building for:

  • Major structural defects or damage such as cracks, rising damp and mould, drainage issues, safety and fire hazards, roof plumbing and guttering. The property will be subjected to a rigorous general examination to ensure all relevant building codes have been followed.
  • Pest activity, with particular emphasis on termites. The building is examined thoroughly, inside and out, including the interior roof space, gutters, downpipes, vents and skylights, all rooms, ceilings, floors and walls, cabinetry and wooden architraves, bathrooms and other wet areas, any basement, crawl spaces or cellar areas, stored timber and floor joists.  We also examine the outside of the building in areas such as the soil, trees and shrubs, old tree stumps or timber landscaping.  We’ll be looking for active nests and infestations, but also evidence of past problems, any damage that has been caused and pest prevention measures.

This company actually investigates the problem instead of just spraying your place and leaving. Very HIGH knowledge and experience in what they...read more do. They took the time to investigate the cause, the source of the problem and elimnated it completely which included going through every cupboard, cracks hiding spots the lot. We had a cochroach problem in our apartment for 3 months and we had 4 different companies come out and NONE of them investigated they only sprayed. After we called PestEx, Mr. Phillips was very knowledgeable and experienced eliminating our problem entirely. We also use PestEx in our shop and both Mr Phillips and Marty are EXCELLENT in resolving and maintaining pest problems. HIGHLY RECOMMEND PEST EX. BEST I'VE SEEN IN QUEENSLAND.
