building and pest inspection

We conduct thorough building and pest inspection in Rutherglen, Albury/Wodonga, and surrounding areas

According to the CSIRO, as many as 1 in 3 Australian properties will have termites at some point during its lifetime. Australian Standards recommend that you get your house inspected for termites at least annually by a licensed inspector. Before buying your house, you should get a building and pest inspection done.

We don’t just meet the requirements of a building and pest inspection under the Australian Standards. Our company specialises in termite management, and our pest inspections are a part of our speciality. We organise a qualified builder to conduct your building inspection to complete our specialist approach.

Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection

If you’re looking to buy a home, getting a professional pest controller who works with termites all year round to do your inspections is a good idea. A building & pest inspector may only be licensed for inspections only. 

You’ll get a same day report which also describes any rot, borers, water leaks, and conditions that can attract termites. Our reports are fully comprehensive and thorough.

We arrange for a licensed builder to accompany us to the job, so you receive a fully competent building and pest inspection report.

Regular Termite Inspection

Unfortunately, by the time most people find termites in their house, it’s after the damage has become obvious. When this happens, there is often much more structural damage concealed beneath the surface. Early detection of termites is key to effective termite control. We are trained to find concealed termite activity.

We don’t just look for termites. You will receive a thorough, comprehensive report that includes information about how you can reduce your risk of termite attack. 

Building Inspection

We don’t believe that any one inspector can specialise in both building inspections and pest inspections. An inspector’s licence is not enough to get a thorough report. 

Our company arranges on your behalf for a trusted building inspector who is also a licensed builder to accompany us to your pre-purchase inspection. He will provide a separate report

We have over 25 years experience working with termites and we’d expect our building inspector to have the same experience with construction. That’s why we prefer to work with a qualified builder, rather than obtain our building inspector’s licence. We trust The Building Investigator to do a thorough job. Together, we provide a complete specialist building and pest inspection.

Pianto's Pest Control COVID-19 Policy

To all of our clients.

We hope you’re all keeping safe and well in this difficult time.

Our business is still operating and servicing our clients as normal, with some changes to procedure.

We are offering flexible payment plans for people who have been financially affected by COVID-19. If you need to arrange a payment plan, please call us and we are more than happy to help.

At this time, the information from federal and state governments is that it is still okay for those in service industries to go to work. We are doing so, while still obeying the rules regarding social distancing:

  • We are doing our best to keep a minimum 1.5m distance from our clients and other residents during our visits. 
  • We are sanitising our hands on arrival and frequently during our visits. We also regularly disinfect our tools before bringing them inside. If you want us to wear protective gloves and a face mask, please let us know – we’re happy to do what we can to help you feel safe.
  • We ask that if you are unwell or isolating that you tell us before we arrive so that we can either reschedule or arrange for other ways to do our job.

Our office procedures remain largely unchanged. We are a mobile business and are very accustomed to running our business on the road. We have no central office to close up. We already have cloud-connected services in place and our business is not largely paper-based.

At the moment we are not experiencing any supply problems. Our suppliers are still trading and we have plenty of stock of our most common chemistry and products to do our job.

Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you!
