How Important is Pest Treating your Home?

How Important is Pest Treating your Home?

Pest treating your home is something that should be on your yearly home maintenance checklist. Ensuring that you regularly pest treat your home will ensure you are protecting one of your greatest assets from pest damage or nasty infestations.

A general pest control treatment will generally treat for:

  • Cockroaches
  • Silverfish
  • Ants
  • Spiders

We also recommend a regular termite inspection whereby your pest controllers will conduct a thorough inspection both in and outside your home and supply a final written report. Most operators will package up both a pest and termite inspection and treatment into one package at a discounted rate.

Benefits of Pest Treating your Home

There are several benefits to enlisting the services of a professional pest control service.

Firstly, they are trained technicians in the field. This means that they are the best people for the job to identify and treat infestations. Better yet, they can help to prevent them from happening again.

Secondly, when building a new home, we recommend a pest and termite treatment at the pre-construction phase. Treatment at the pre-construction phase means treating the perimeter of your home, with products such as ‘Kordon’ in a proactive effort to keep the bugs away and infestations from occurring.

Gold Coast and Tweed Pest Control

As with most services, word of mouth is everything. We highly recommend Danny Burgess and his team from Capital Pest Management. Not only do they provide expert service and workmanship, they are dedicated to using the greenest products to ensure the wellbeing of your family, home and beloved pets. They provide an ongoing service for your home and provide a detailed report following every treatment. They are family-owned, affordable and provide quality service with over 40 years in the industry.

So be sure to put pest control treatments on your yearly maintenance schedule. If starting a new build with Measured Up, we will include an initial pest control treatment in your initial building quote. We will take care of the treatment as part of the building process, and then hand you over to Danny and his team for ongoing management.



It has been a big few months for the team at Measured Up Builders. Nat and his team have been putting in the hard yards in an effort to deliver our client’s homes in time for Christmas. What better present to receive for Christmas than a new home right?

Behind the scenes and off the worksite, Clare (the glue that keeps the business running smoothly and efficiently!) has been working with the team at Chilli Frog Marketing to develop our brand new website. With building homes and renovations our #1 priority, our online presence had been placed on the backburner and pretty much, stayed put.

2016 meant it was time for a change – to get with the times and have an online presence that matches our quality builds. So welcome to our new website!

Our aim with the new site was to show the quality architectural design and craftsmanship that comes when you build with us. We wanted a website that allowed our homes to take centre stage – because that is what we do best!

The site features new home and renovation galleries, complete with before, during and after shots. We do this to keep our clients who may live far away from their new build, or who want to share with their friends and families, up-to-date with the progress of their new home. It’s a virtual photo album of the transformation of their new home, and it gives you an insight into how we progress with the day-to-day building progress. It’s just another way we personalise every Measured Up build.

Along with the galleries, we will be featuring our fortnightly blog full of building and design advice and tips, new home, renovation and inspiration articles to help guide and inspire new home builders or those looking to renovate.

Not only that, you’ll now find us on Facebook and Instagram where we will share our latest new homes and renovations as they progress and are completed. We will share with you our favourite design and building tips, innovations and trends and things to consider when building beachside and beyond.

So welcome to our new journey – we hope you enjoy experiencing what happens behind the scenes with our Measured Up Builders team! Join our enewsletter (at the bottom of our homepage) to keep up-to-date with our latest news and completed projects.
