H2: What Are the Possible Causes of Termite Infestation?
- Build-up of discarded debris stored under the house and other hard-to-access areas. This factor, along with the proximity of trees or fences surrounding the property, provides a fertile breeding ground for termites, which can cause extensive underfloor damage.
- Unseen leaking water, drainage and sewage pipes which can create a haven for termites to breed, resulting in possible long-term damage to the floor joists.
- Not many people realise that termites only require a small gap of 2 mm to enable them to enter internal walls through ventilation or loose downpipes.
Sellers or their agents are unlikely to inform you of a possible termite infestation in the property which you are hoping to buy. It is a fact that most buyers DON’T get the chance to inspect these hard-to-access areas when they undertake their viewing of the property.
A termite inspection by House Inspections Geelong Services will carry out that task on your behalf and enable you to identify any such pest infestations that could prove to be very expensive in the future!
