June 4, 2020 Cure All Pest Control

In order to keep the residents, occupants or guests of a building safe and healthy, it may become necessary to enlist pest control services at one time or another. As we head into the winter months and pests are laying dormant, now is a perfect time to get on top of your pest control. It’s important that you understand the various scenarios where a pest expert is required and that you know when the right time to call is. Read more below:

When you Spot Early Signs

As soon as you begin to see any signs of ants, cockroaches, termites, or any other kind of pest, it’s vital that you call a pest control expert immediately. Many pests breed and multiply at alarming rates, so attempting to ‘turn a blind eye’ or simply hoping that the problem will go away is definitely not the attitude to take when it comes to unwanted house guests. The sooner you enlist the services of a pest control expert, the better, as it will prevent your pest infestation from expanding exponentially and becoming a much bigger, more costly, and dangerous issue.

After Home Remedies Have Failed

In our experience, DIY pest control methods simply don’t cut it most of the time. Many home remedies aren’t potent enough or don’t cover a big enough surface area, and so they rarely do an effective job of getting rid of pests. If you’ve tried your own methods of pest control and don’t seem to be having much success, call a pest control expert immediately to make sure that your pest infestation doesn’t spiral out of control rapidly.

When Selling a Home

When selling your home, you should have a building inspection completed. However, it’s best practice to have a building and pest inspection carried out, and even better if you can find one company who is qualified to do both. This will give you an extra advantage when selling and help to assure any potential buyers that your home is not only structurally sound but also safe and pest free.

Before you Buy a Property

Before purchasing a new home or property, it’s crucial that you have a pest inspection carried out to ensure complete peace of mind about your new home. Buying a house is a significant decision to make, and so you want to do everything within your power to ensure that you’re making the right decision. No one wants to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a new home just to find out that it’s riddled with cockroaches or plagued with a termite infestation. Again, contracting the services of a company that is qualified to do both a building and pest inspection at once will save you a lot of time, hassle, and money. It’s a win-win!

Before you Build

Before building houses, units, commercial spaces, or industrial buildings, it’s highly recommended that you seek pre-construction pest evaluation and removal services. This step will eliminate the possibility of any costly disruptions to your construction which will also lead to an increase in overall building time. What’s more, it’s also vital that your pest solution complies with the Building Code of Australia.
