Home sweet home! Probably your biggest asset, but right now termites might be eating into it and reducing the value of your property.
Every year, right around Australia, particularly in densely populated areas such as Brisbane and other major cities, termites cause large amounts of damage to homes and businesses. A conservative estimate of the cost for house owners in Australia to repair damage caused by termites, is more than 1 Billion dollars annually.
Your house could be infested without you knowing it. Termites look for moisture sources and like to eat cellulose in timber and timber by products and will happily invade your home looking for them.
How do you know if you have termites?
Often you don’t but signs to look for include:
- Earth trails heading from the ground up walls, foundations and
even plants growing against the house.
- Termite nests – balls of earth tucked up under the house.
- Moist patches on walls or dirt at the base of woodwork.
- Soft, hollow sounding spots in door or window frames.
- Sometimes termites can even be heard as a soft scraping sound
in the walls when all is quiet.
