A Professional Pest Inspection is a Must

Every Melbourne home is susceptible to invasion by property damaging pests and it is extremely important that you have a qualified, licensed and registered pest inspector to provide you with a professional pest inspection of your property.

Pests that Damage Your Home are Hidden

A home may look perfect from the outside but inside there may be pests that have destroyed or are destroying your potential new home and you must be aware of that prior to purchasing your new property.

Safe and Sound Identify Places where Pests Breed

Moisture is one of the biggest causes of damage in homes and buildings. As well as identifying pests that are damaging the structural integrity of your property, we will identify places where pests can breed. Pests such as cockroaches, mosquitoes, fleas, mites, rats and bed bugs are disease carriers at worst and annoying at best and we can help you identify their breeding areas.

Safe and Sound will Discuss Their Report with Your Pest Control Company

If you do find a pest infestation and choose a pest control company, we are happy, free of charge, to advise them on where we found the pests and the areas that require attention. You will also have that information on your home and building pest report.
