Subfloor covering

Access to the subfloor area of a house is vital for a proper termite inspection. More often than not, if there is a termite infestation then there will be evidence in the subfloor. Not only that, but anything that might be inviting termites into the building will probably be evident in the subfloor (Think leaking pipes and random bits of timber stored in the subfloor)

 This garden area not only restricts access to the subfloor, but the plants and decaying organic matter is like a billboard inviting the termites in!

 There's little hope of doing a good termite inspection with this much foliage! (And a greater chance of finding termites!)

 Not only do the plants against the building compromise the building, but having the timber in the garden makes a great appetizer for the termites before they make it inside.
