Termite Inspection and Treatment Cost

Termite Inspections Perth Technicians

With over 15 years of experience working with termites, also known as white ants, we’ve seen how costly it can be when homeowners or businesses aren’t proactive with preventing and treating termites. Since termites are sneaky and often avoid detection, regular termite inspections and pre-purchased inspections can identify termite infestations before they get out of control. Swat-A-Pest offers a range of termite protection services to suit your needs, whether you want to check for termites or treat a termite infestation.

Pre-Purchase Inspection – Standard – $330.00

Inspection carried out to AS4349.3, includes inspecting for termites, borers and fungal decay to all accessible roof areas, subfloor (if applicable), as well as all internal and external areas within 30m of home structure.

Pre-Purchase Inspection – T3i upgrade – $330.00

Using Thermal Technology, we will carry out a thermal scan of any applicable walls and ceiling areas. We will also conduct a microwave scan of all bathroom, kitchen and laundry cupboards to determine if termites are hiding in these internal hot spots.

Pre-Purchase Inspection – Major upgrade – $800.00

We will also carry out a moisture test to all walls of the house, a sound test of every accessible timber and a microwave test of all external walls of the home to determine if activity exists hidden in the walls.

Previously referred to as a White Ant Clearance Certificate, a pre-purchased termite inspection cost in Perth is negligible versus the cost of buying your new dream home with termites in residence.

Termite Treatment Cost Perth

In the situation where a termite infestation is identified, termite treatment is required to prevent further damage. Not only will treating infestations early reduce treatment costs significantly, but will also protect those within the property as termites can cause structural damage.

The treatment cost varies, as no two termite infestations are the same. The cost of treatment is influenced by the price of the chemical required, with more expensive and effective chemicals costing more, which is why you shouldn’t go for the cheapest quote.
