Buildings should ideally be washed every 2 years. Repainted every 8 to 10 years.


SWOBE no longer provides Termite Control of active termites. Still carrying out a degree of Curative and/or preventative measures.

Termite Control is generally complex requiring specialist skills combined with specialist equipment and appropriate chemicals.

Too often property owners are led to believe one particular system is superior over another or that one particular method of control will provide you with ongoing protection. When it comes to termites there is no silver bullet and there is no one size fits all.

Every property is different, every property has a different set of circumstances that needs to be taken into account and every property generally has a different environment.

For effective termite control so many considerations need to be made prior to determining what will be the most applicable termite control method or methods to be used and what additional works are needed to minimise the future ris of termite infestation.

Stephen Koelewyn proprietor of SWOBE has a skill set that is unique and can provide a real benefit to property owners when considering termite control.

SWOBE Inspection Video from Stephen Koelewyn on Vimeo.

Addition of Walk-n-Talk Video™ to written reports is unique. Video is an eye opener, it exposes the good, the bad and the ugly, really makes people more knowledgeable, you get to see much of what the inspector has seen, also within the roof & under the house, with video you can make your own decisions in a well informed manner, raw vision can be viewed again and again. I also add a verbal summary and verbal conclusion with every video, giving a good, grounded perspective on the property inspected.



SWOBE is not a big fan of termite baiting systems as stand alone termite treatment option although they are essential in controlling termites in numerous situations and can never be overlooked, when considering a termite baiting program and/or a termite interception program one needs to be fully aware that these programs alone will not provide long term protection against termite attack, they are very good at providing effective control of a termite infestation that has been attracted to the baiting stations yet a possibility always exists that additional termite activity from another nest may be causing further unknown damage, these systems rely heavily on periodic inspections and in some cases can take up to a number of years to provide effective longer term termite control. The cost of these termite baiting systems together with the cost of the ongoing inspections can be very expensive for a property owner and all the pro's and con's need to be taken into account before deciding to go down this path of termite control.
