If your idea of good home maintenance simply involves repair work, a good spring clean and maybe the odd visit from your plumber and electrician, you’re missing out on one crucial element. You got it – regular pest inspections.
When it comes to the health and safety of you and your family, home maintenance is not just a matter of keeping your house and garden neat and clean. The upkeep of your home should also comprise of taking the necessary measures to safeguard it from pesky pests that could potentially cause harm to your property and, more importantly, your loved ones.
Regular pest inspections are not only great for detecting pest problems in their early stages, but they actually prevent pests from infesting in the first place.
A professional pest inspector will be trained to detect where potential pests could enter your home. They will offer you expert advice and tips, as well as put the necessary prevention methods in place to prohibit them from becoming your new housemates.
It is important to remember that even if you cannot see any pests lurking around your home, it doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t there. Having regular pest inspections will give you the piece of mind you need to know your home is safe and protected from those pesky pests.
It is not uncommon for pests to carry harmful bacteria in their hair and faeces. These bacteria can easily contaminate food, furniture and other surfaces around the home, which can cause illness to you, your family and your pets.
A regular pest inspection will rid your home of unwanted visitors and, in turn, protect your family from contracting any nasty illness or disease.
Pests aren’t just a hazard to your health – the stability of your home could also lie within the hands of a good pest inspection service!
Homes infested by bothersome pests can be at risk of serious structural devastation. In fact, insects such as termites can cause damage to ceilings, walls, foundation structures, carpet and furniture, which can cost hundreds to repair and even decrease your property’s value.
Even if you have had insect defences in place to protect your home in the past, many of these protection barriers can be breached making your home vulnerable to infestation. The best way to avoid any type of structure or fabric damage by unwanted visitors is by continuing with regular and professional pest inspections.
When disturbed, certain pests will simply relocate before they have been destroyed and will likely re-infest your home. This is particularly common in colonies of termites.
Furthermore, if you do not rid of pests using the correct techniques and treatments, you can be sure to see them resurface in no time at all.
Professional pest technicians are skilled at identifying the species of problematic pest and will put the right treatments and preventative measures in place to deter them from making a most impolite return.
The protection and conservation of your most valued asset is just another reason to bring a pest control professional into your home. If you have pests living in the walls, floors and ceiling of your home, over time they are likely to cause harmful damage to your property.
As mentioned previously, structural damage can negatively impact your property’s value, as well as affect the ability to sell your home and trigger immediate out-of-pocket expenses. Most infestations of the home are not for amateurs to tackle alone and require the work of a pest professional to successfully eliminate the pest.
