Importance Of Building And Pest Inspections Of A New Property

Importance Of Building And Pest Inspections Of A New Property

The transition from an old property to a new one is sure to be exciting, but don’t let the fact that the property is new fool you, because even modern structures are at risk of pest infestations. Many common household pests will set up camp inside the home, with suitable habitats ranging from furniture to attics and wood. Prior to moving your belongings into a new property, it would be wise to arrange a building and pest inspection with a professional. A pest control expert will use industry knowledge, as well as high grade equipment, products and treatments to target pests, whilst maintaining health and safety. If you are not quite sure why an inspection is necessary, read on.

Stop Infestations from Causing Structural Damage

A lot of insects and rodents are responsible for property damage, such as rodents and termites that gnaw wood and other structures. When infestations get out of hand, you will be left picking up the bill for structural damage. Ignoring the problem could cause a big health and safety hazard, and will put you and other occupants of the building at risk. A professional will be able to inspect the property and if signs of structural damage are present, pest control methods will begin.

Preventative Methods and Methods of Control

Certain things will attract pests, such as warmth, humidity and food. Pests and rodents can be prevented in a number of ways and the method of control will depend on what type of pest is causing the infestation. Examples of the most popular preventative methods include sealing cracks and holes on the exterior of the property, ensuring the property is well ventilated, repairing rotting wood and damaged structures that might be considered an entry point for pests, and storing old food and rubbish in sealed containers.

Get Information About the Pest Life Cycle

The more you know about the life cycle of the pest that is infesting your property, the easier it will be to prevent infestations from occurring in the future. A pest control specialist will have undergone a lot of training and education, so you can trust them to know how long the pests live and at what rate they reproduce. Learning facts about their behaviour and biology will make finding a solution to the problem that little bit easier.
