Purchasing a property will always be a significant financial investment where you’ll want to maintain the value of the property under any circumstances. In order to protect your property, you will need to consider aspects such as;

  • The age of the building: With older buildings embracing less modern designs & construction techniques, they are more likely to have been constructed with a higher proportion of wooden elements. E.g. beams, timber flooring, and even fencing which can all contribute to being environments for termites in Sydney.

  • Location: Properties located near bushland where sources of wood are endless act as perfect environments for existing termite colonies and that termites can move into residential homes with ease as they are nearby. We at Andy’s Pest Control understand these influences and can effectively advise on how frequently you will require a termite pest inspection in your Sydney home to ensure that it is free from termite infestations.
