Termite mudding

HomeMasters Inspections | Damage found under the floor in a home at Brighton

Building Inspection Brighton

A recent Pre-Purchase building and Pest inspection carried out by HomeMasters in Brighton, Adelaide has revealed something nasty underneath the timber floors in the living room.

There was mudding discovered by our building inspector and upon further investigation, active termites were found eating away at the flooring joists and floor boards. The home had a treatment in place but due to a nearby down pipe splashing water against the wall the termite treatment was ineffective. It was also noted that an air conditioner was dropping water against the wall. The excessive moisture ultimately attracted the termites. These type of issues unfortunately can void a termite treatment leaving the home owner at a loss, this is one reason why annual inspections for termites are always highly recommended.

The damage caused to the floor boards in the home at Brighton was substantial. The client was advised of the termite damage, fortunately HomeMasters also carries out pest control and were able to inform the client how much they would be up for prior to purchase to treat the termite infestation. The client was also advised of the species and how much damage they can cause.
