In accordance with Australian Standard 4349.3- 1998 and AS 3660 Inspection guidelines, we utilise thermal camera technology to help detect such insects.

In addition to our Timber pest report to identify these pests, we will also assist you to prevent future attacks with a maintenance plan to ensure your investment is secure.

Moisture Meter – Termites thrive in high moisture areas. This meter can detect termite activity.

Thermal Image Camera – This is used to scan for ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ spots. By measuring the surface temperature of materials, the camera will show black (cold) spots or white (hot) spots.

A termite nest will be hotter than its surrounds and will show as a white ‘hot’ spot.

A shower or roof leak will show up as a black or ‘cold’ spot.

The camera although not an Australian Standard is an added service that we provide which gives piece of mind when buying a home.
