Our Inspection Process

Our inspection process is carried out in four phases, each covering a different aspect of the property. 

  • Phase one is a visual assessment of the property and the testing of appliances, lights and other fittings. We cover basic house integrity and give you a good idea of the overall state of the property. 
  • Phase two is laser levelling and thermal imaging, a process that lets us detect thermal anomalies as well as any sinking or uneven floors, ceilings or walls. 
  • Phase three is an inspection of the roof cavity and subfloor areas to assess any damage, leaks and structural issues. 
  • Phase four is when we wrap up with our comprehensive building pest inspections Melbourne report, giving you everything you need to know to make an informed decision on the purchase of your property. You’ll receive your report no later than 24 hours after the inspection.

The Latest In Pest Detection

As professionals, we use the latest pest detection technology to quickly detect and map out termite paths and nests as well as  identify other pests. Use of these tools is included as part of our building and pest inspection Melbourne.

  • Termatrac T3i Radar Termite Detector
    • This radar termite detector uses low energy microwaves to penetrate and detect any activity in the walls, such as the movement of termites and other insects. 
  • Moisture and Humidity Meter
    • Using a sensitive moisture meter, we can record changes in moisture levels to identify problems and potential spaces where termites might build nests.
