In Australia, there are several different threats such as fire, wild storms and flooding that can damage our homes.
But one of the biggest headaches for most Gold Coast homeowners is the damage caused by subterranean termites or ‘white ants’. These little pests cause major structural and economical damage, sometimes more than you realise. Without the right preventative measures in place, the cost for these types of repairs can add up quite quickly.
Here are a few different signs to look out for in your home:
- Mud shelter tubes – these can be found in the brick foundation or architraves of the home. These are used by termites as protection.
- Hollow sounding timber – this is a good indication they have begun to eat away at the timber.
- Power failures – termites are attracted to the warmth of the electrical fittings behind the walls.
Once you have taken the correct measures to identify the problem and have the area treated, it’s time to assess and organise to repair the damage. That’s where we can help!
