Pre-construction pest control
Pre-construction pest inspection Perth. Termite attacks are an unfortunate fact of life here in Australia, to the point where the Building Code (BCA ’96) requires all new buildings to protect themselves through termite and moisture protection barriers.
We offer a range of pre-construction pest inspection Perth treatment options to protect your construction projects from day one. Not only do these prevent damage from future pest problems, but they also save you the cost (and legwork) of retrofitting a termite management system once the building is complete.
Read on to find out how TMO Pest and Weed Management can provide long-term protection for your project through pre-construction pest control!
The Benefits of Pre-Construction Pest Inspection Perth
Pre-construction pest control solutions are designed to extend the life of your new building, offering a proactive approach to preventing termite damage and reducing ongoing operational costs.
Because so many prospective buyers require these services, many of the contractors we work with will include the cost of pre-construction pest control treatments in their construction quotes—making the process that much simpler.
At TMO Pest and Weed Management, we understand the work and financial commitment involved when building your dream home. Our highly trained team treats every project with care and respect, ensuring an extremely professional service that meets the unique requirements of your project, while always adhering to the required Australian Standards.
Pre-Construction Termite Treatment
We offer a comprehensive range of chemical and physical termite barriers to construction contractors and individual homeowners throughout Pest control Perth. To ensure these systems are effective at preventing termite attacks, we install them during construction, sealing them to the foundations of your building or existing structure, either via collars around the penetrations or sheeting to the brickwork.
We use patented, single layer, extruded polymer sheeting, creating physical barriers for the ultimate subterranean termite protection.
Chemical Soil Treatments
TMO Pest and Weed Management can treat the soil on your site before the concrete is poured. We use Bifenthrin, a highly-effective repellent termiticide that prevents termites and ants from travelling through the ground and up the footings to access the building.
It’s important to note that while chemical termite treatments Perth solutions are an effective form of termite control, and they do prevent termite infestation, they are not designed to eradicate whole termite colonies. Instead, they form an effective deterrent against termite entry to your building, especially when poured continuously in an unbroken perimeter.
Termite reticulation systems are a network of underground pipes that pump large volumes of termiticide around your property—often around the perimeter of your building. These systems have a lifespan of up to 50 years and can be re-filled with chemicals, offering a highly effective, long term termite barrier.
By treating the soil under concrete areas (e.g. the concrete slab), any foraging termites that come into contact with the termicide will be killed. For the best results, we ensure your construction project is protected both internally and externally, without exposing the occupants to the chemical barrier at any point throughout its lifespan.
Slab Edge Waterproofing or Parging
The Building Code of Australia requires any new home to be constructed in a way that protects the structure from moisture. This is designed to deter both subterranean termites and damp wood termites—and again, protect your property from future issues.
We offer slab edge waterproofing, which is an effective vapour barrier solution. By treating the slab edge with a protective membrane and waterproofing spray, the house should effectively be protected from rising damp, with the foundations being impervious to water ingress.
Slab curing is another effective solution for preventing a future termite problem. Because fresh concrete is susceptible to cracks and decay as a result of evaporation and temperature extremes, it’s therefore susceptible to water damage and termite infestations.
Chemical curing greatly assists the hydration process by creating a flexible film that prevents concrete from drying out during the early stages of hydration—which is especially critical in Perth’s hot summers.
TMO Pest and Weed Management can supply Australian Standard-compliant curing compounds to help you protect your concrete slab from termite infestations.
