I received a call from a concerned lady in Molendinar recently as she had found what she thought was termites in the very base of a door frame inside her home.
As part as our service here at Conquer Termites Gold Coast, we offer a FREE 1/2 hour assessment service for people in this situation to determine whether this damage inside the home is honestly caused by either termites, wood decay, structural movement or other household critters :).
This is a genuine and honest service as sometimes it’s termites, and sometimes it’s not.
Either way, we can explain the findings so that you can have a professional opinion and information to make the right decisions.
As I conducted further investigation into this area with my hi-resolution thermal imaging camera, it was found that a large congregation of termites had created quite an establishment within the surrounding wall cavity.
Even though this was a little alarming for this home owner at the time, I assured her that “if you are unlucky enough to get termites, you are actually very lucky that they have eaten VISUAL timbers which brings this problem to your attention”.
Often timbers are eaten inside walls extensively before any visual evidence is apparent.
If you have found a similar concern to this or would just like “piece of mind” that termites are not currently affecting your home with one of our Full Termite Inspections, just email us or give us a call on 0459 166 396 and we are always happy to provide our honest and friendly services 🙂
