The latest technology in termite detection is here and we have it!

Budget Reports is one of the very few inspectors in Melbourne who use highly advanced infrared thermal imaging cameras for building or house inspections. This smart technology can assist in detecting termite activity and other building defects in areas that may not be visible with the naked eye, therefore providing a much more accurate and thorough inspection (pest detection, water leakage, dampness and missing insulation).
