Have Your Pool Area Inspected for Termites

Pools are a lot of fun and a great way to cool off. If you have a sheltered area in your pool, then it is probably made of wood frame, or maybe your pool fence is made of timber. Either way, if you have timber in or around your pool area, it is a cause of some concern. Being a wet area, termites could be present. These small, ant like creatures love wet areas, especially in tropical and sub tropical regions. They also love consuming timber so it’s important to have an inspector come out to do regular inspections on these areas.

With the new pool safety regulations coming into play, it is good to kill two birds with one stone and hire a pool inspections professional in Brisbane that can inspect for termites as well as inspecting your pool and surrounding area to ensure it is in compliance with the new regulations. This in turn will save you time and money.

These new pool safety regulations were brought into effect in an effort to lower the rate of drowning accidents, especially among young children. There have been way too many drowning accidents involving small children and as parent’s we have a responsibility to ensure that the pool area is properly enclosed and safe for our kids.

If you have shaded wooden areas in your pool area, then there can be a safety issue with that if it has been affected by termites and although small, these creatures have a large appetite and can do a large amount of damage in a short space of time.

If you are unsure whether or not termites have affected your property, then you can call in a pest inspection company to check for you. Trained professionals can check for termites, as well as checking your pool area is in compliance with the new regulations. If it is in compliance then the inspector can issue you with a Pool Safety Certificate. If it is not in compliance, then you will be issued with a non compliance certificate and you will have three months from that date to repair the problem. The inspector will then reinspect the property and issue you with a compliance certificate. Hiring an inspector who can give you a more holistic view of your property will save you time and money.

So, if you are needing to have your property checked for termites and you have a pool, why not hire an inspector who can check your whole property together and save yourself a tonne of money.
