Termite control: How to prepare for a termite treatment in Arundel?


Knowledge is power, and when it comes to termites, it's important homeowners across the Gold Coast are aware of how they operate, their tendencies and signs of damage. Our team at Complete Termite and Pest Control know a thing or two about them and this week our focus shifts to homeowners in Arundel. Knowledge about termites enables homeowners to somewhat detect the presence of termites and prevent their presence. Though some of the initial legwork can be done by yourself, it's a termite technician's job to properly treat and prevent an infestation. To help kickstart that process, here are 4 things you can do for your home in Arundel before it undergoes any termite treatment:

Clear away storage
Prior to a thorough termite treatment in your home, clear storage areas in your home including cabinets and closets. Make sure they contain nothing and are free from clutter.

Clear spaces for easy access
If your home is elevated, the technician might conduct inspections and treatment in the crawl space. When your crawl space is to be treated, remove everything that blocks the way for the technicians so there won't be any disturbances. This also includes clearing the way to your attic. When your attic will undergo treatment, it is necessary to provide a step for the technicians to give them easy access going to that particular area in your house. Clearing the spaces will help your hired termite controllers get the job done fast.

Remove fragile items
Keep fragile items away from the area that is to be inspected and treated. This will ensure nothing will be knocked over. Fragile items include glasses, plates and appliances.

Prepare your garden area
A termite infestation doesn't just happen indoors. It can also happen outdoors, particularly your garden. Before they visit your garden, prune your trees or plants that have large limbs to ensure easy access around the garden area.
