TERMITES – Did you know Termite Damage is not covered by your insurance?
Many homeowners in Carlingford, Castle Hill, Blacktown, Baulkham Hills, Quakers Hill, Dundas, North Rock, Rydalmere, Pennant Hills and surrounding suburbs are all experiencing huge building developments, with many homes being demolished to build units or owners are rebuilding new homes. Many of the properties affected by termites are not just old homes, they affect new homes where the properties are under 5 years old.
Termite treatments are not all the same, a number of homes we recently treated for termites issues the products used as under slab termite or as a reticulation fill the protection was not effective, wrong concentrations used or was not installed correctly.
Termites are looking for a new home when the termites have been living in large trees landscapes where there has been huge trees removed, land and soil movement and the termites were not treated or found during the excavation work termite’s just move on to the surrounding properties.
Many termites are aggressive and can cause significant damage to your home if not found early and treated. No home is really safe, many termites are aggressive and will enter home made of steel frames, hardwood, especially homes or extensions that have not properly been built or where the structure is built not using treated timbers.
Our termite’s images are from actual termite jobs on the go or termite jobs completed over the years. When you appoint a technician to do termite work make sure they are licensed to do and install certain termite products by the suppliers, that they are insured to do termite work, that they provide you with a receipt and what chemicals they have used to treat termites at your property.
If find you have a termite issue do not disturb the area, it is also important to make tenants of properties aware that if they find termite mudding, termite grit build-up or walls that have a soft feel or showing cracking take a picture and email or text to the termite technician who will assist and instruct what needs to be done. If you disturb the area the termite will just move to another part of the residence and restart the process of destroying your home.
