The Pest Inspection

The Timber Pest Inspection is a careful and thorough inspection of the property with a focus upon identifying and reporting on evidence of Timber Pest Activity, Conditions Conducive to Timber Pests, Evidence of Pest Management Systems, and Risk Management Options.

We conduct an examination of timber and other accessible materials or areas susceptible to attack by timber pests including:

  • Structural timbers in the load bearing framework of the building including bearers, joists and rafters.
  • Joinery including finishes to the building such as moulding, architraves, skirtings, doors, windows and cupboards.
  • Wood and wood products in outdoor areas such as landscaping timbers, fences, logs, pool surrounds, garden boxes and tubs, firewood, paving blocks, sleepers, tree stumps and trees.
  • Surface work to foundation soils, walls and services.
  • Any other visible susceptible timber materials such as bridges, pergolas, stored items containing cellulose, builder’s debris & formwork.

 

 

We Perform Tests (Where Appropriate) Including:

  • Sounding - using a tapper to identify timber elements which sound hollow.
  • Probing - using a probe to identify a timber made soft by decay, termites, delignification or borers.
  • Electronic Moisture Detecting Meter - used to identify excessive moisture created by termites or conversely, creating a condition conductive to timber pests.

Timber Pests Specifically Addressed Are:

  • Fungal decay
  • Wood borers
  • Termites
  • Chemical delignification

THERMAL IMAGE TESTING

Detecting termites can be a difficult process but by using Thermal Imaging cameras, an Auspect inspector can quickly identify swarms of termites. Termites behind a wall will give off heat and the camera will show hot spots where they are located. The infestation can then be eradicated.

At Auspect, we use Thermal Imaging Cameras during all timber pest inspections. We can tell you what’s happening behind your walls without the need of knocking down walls or drilling into floors. It’s a non-evasive technology that reveals if the house you’re thinking of buying, is structurally sound and free of damaging termites. It really is highly recommended.
