Pest Inspections

Pest Inspection Dubbo

Your home is almost certainly the most valuable asset you’ll ever own and the most expensive to maintain, especially if there are defects to correct. Similarly, as a business owner, your premises are vital to the smooth running of your company and need to be in as perfect a condition as possible.

If you are looking to buy a new property, acquiring one with serious failings can be an expensive mistake, causing years of unnecessary stress and cost. Consequently, before you commit to the property, you should arrange a building inspection to ensure the premises are sound and a pest inspection to determine there are no actual or potential pest infestations.

What is a pest inspection

During a pest inspection the licensed technician will look for evidence of live termites, rodents, bed bugs, spiders, or any other pest that could be attacking your home. At the same time we will notice any other infestations from general pests and advise accordingly.
A pest inspection in Dubbo involves inspecting all accessible areas internally, externally, in roof voids and beneath subfloors. It will include all structures, garden borders, trees, stumps and fence lines. Once complete we will also provide you with a comprehensive 12-page report.

Do I need a Pest Inspection when purchasing a home?

We currently do a large number of pre-purchase pest inspections. Houses are one of the biggest assets people will own in their lifetime therefore it’s crucial that you do your homework before buying and know what you’re investing in. Termite damage can mean thousands of dollars in repairs by not only attacking house frames and structures but wall linings, cupboards, skirtings, windows and door frames, carpets, plastic coating on electrical wiring and even books and personal papers! Not to mention the loss of resale price. A home that has termites or even termite damage lowers it’s value leaving you stuck with expensive repairs or selling for less.

What’s the cost of a pest inspection?

A full pre-purchase pest inspection, including your comprehensive 12-page report, is just $330 inclusive of GST. We arrange our inspections each week by suburb so you don’t have to pay any travel costs. If you require a pest inspection outside of our travel area schedules, a small travel surcharge will be applied.

We are very prompt with pre-purchase pest inspections because we know they take priority. We can even organise a building inspection for you to be done at the same time for your convenience. Simply call us on (02) 6887 2825 to check our schedules and book your inspection – or contact us here.

Pest Inspection

A Pest Inspection in Dubbo is essential for every Property Owner

Dubbo and the rest of New South Wales often have perfect conditions for pests to flourish. This puts property at risk because the presence of pests in large numbers can be very destructive for those properties and their contents.

The general principle when dealing with pests is to act quickly, to detect and eradicate them before they can do too much damage. This means organising a professional pest inspection that will determine if pests are present and what needs to be done. Read More

The Right Inspection for every Pest

Pest inspections are of two main types:

  • pre-purchase inspections that check for the presence of pests before you buy a property; given that damage by pests can be expensive to repair and will not be covered by buildings insurance, this is essential before you commit to your investment.
  • routine inspections that are made at regular intervals and are necessary to detect pests early before damage becomes too great.

It’s absolutely essential that you arrange a pest inspection to check for infestations of all types, the main threats being:

  • Termites, which are probably the most destructive pest in Australia. They will enter your property through gaps in the walls or by burrowing underground to search for a food source. They will eat any wood, including the framework of your property, and can cause immense damage.
  • Rodents, with the main threat being rats, although mice are also a problem. They spread disease but also cause damage by chewing through pipes and cables.
  • Bed bugs that get into furniture, clothing and bedding, causing irritation by their bites and requiring the replacement of affected items.
  • Cockroaches that breed rapidly and spread disease, cause damage and are generally unpleasant.
  • Silverfish that will eat through clothing, furnishings and books, and are mainly active at night so you don’t see them.

Organising a Professional Pest Inspection in Dubbo

At Dentec Pest Management, we don’t concentrate on one particular pest but inspect a house for pest infestations of any kind. Our aim is to give you and your property complete pest control solution in Dubbo.

We’ll inspect the interior and exterior of your property, including every room, attic spaces and outbuildings. We’ll make use of the latest technology to check the spaces we can’t physically get at, using thermal imaging cameras, motion detectors and moisture meters.

What we rely on most of all, however, is the skill and experience of our technicians, who know where to look and what to look for. This includes visible damage to timber and upholstery, deposits in and around the property and electrical faults that may be caused by gnawing on the wiring.

Our inspectors are very thorough and will spend as long as is necessary to conduct a complete check. After that, we’ll promptly deliver a comprehensive report that will detail any detected pest activity, property failings that attract pests or allow easy entry and recommendations for treatment and future prevention.

Our pest inspection report will give you a detailed indication of what’s needed, both immediately and in the future. We can then take the recommended action to eradicate any problems you have and then re-inspect regularly to deal with future infestations although, if you follow our recommendations, these are far less likely.

What guarantee comes with a Dentec Pest Inspection?

Our comprehensive 12-page pest inspection report will fully detail the results of our inspection. We will also provide you with independent advice on how often you should have a termite inspection, as this varies by building construction and situation. Even if we give you the all-clear, if there are areas of the property which are conducive to termite infestation, it could be a couple of days, months or years before they arrive. If you implement our termite protection recommendations, including Exterra baiting where recommended, then you will be extremely unlikely to suffer a termite infestation. The quicker you implement our recommendations the less chance there is of termite infestation.
