What Should You Do if You Discover Termites?
Termites can cause significant damage to a property and need to be dealt with quickly and thoroughly.
People renting a property should check their rental agreement and speak to their landlord to discuss a solution. Although residents in an apartment can spot treat their property, if the infestation affects the entire building, their efforts will be of little use.
It’s important to stop water damage from occurring in the home as termites flourish in moist wood. As that water damage spreads, so will the termite problem. Moisture can also encourage mould which is harmful to the health of residents.
A professional should be called in to a treat a termite problem and the cost of treatment will vary depending on the extent of the infestation. It’s important for residents to seek a second and third opinion to ensure they receive an accurate assessment and quote. It’s also important to only deal with licensed, insured operators who use integrated approaches that minimise the use of harmful chemicals.
