Pest house inspections Brunswick

In need of a pest inspection? We are often asked whether a pest report is necessary when you're looking to buy a brick house built on a concrete slab. The simple answer is yes. The majority of household pests only need a gap of 2mm to get inside, so even though the building may have a concrete slab, there could still be gaps in the mortar, bricks and even drain pipes that would allow pests in. Melbourne is very diverse and soil in some areas shift substantially, and others are prone to pest infestation, regardless of building material or the age of the house.

Our inspection process

Once we have completed the inspection, we will call you with an overview. This is followed up with the full house inspection report that will be emailed within 24 hours. Our comprehensive reports are accompanied by photographs detailing any particular areas for concern, particularly in the roof void, sub-floor and other internal areas. If our inspection reveals anything of immediate concern, we bring this to your attention. We detail our recommendations for the repairs and remedial work necessary to rectify these issues.
