Another breakthrough from John Piper International

A lifelong protection from termite attacks

The construction of a house is a long term investment and it has become a timely need to protect your beautiful house from termites. It is essential to divert your attention towards the treatment process against termites during the period of your house building as there is the likelihood of causing damage to all timber structures in the newly built house.

Retaining the services of a competent termite control company is important because termite control requires specialized equipment and knowledge available only from professionals. Termites, which are wood-destroying insects common in most areas of Sri Lanka, cause heavy damage annually. Wooden structures in the island have more than a 70 percent chance of being attacked by termites within 10 to 20 years. Termites may even begin attacking soon after construction.

Properly treating the soil beneath and around the foundation with termiticides before construction, called a pre-treatment, reduces the threat of termites.

John Piper International (Pvt) Ltd with a long standing image of excellence in termite control service has gained recognition and won confidence among architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and building contractors in the construction sector owing to its quality service and high technical know-how. The company has already received ISO 9001-2008 international Quality Management System Certification.
The board of directors of John Piper International consists of qualified professionals who are the members of Sri Lanka Organization of Agricultural Professionals (SLOAP) and Organization of Professional Associations of Sri Lanka (OPA).The existing excellent technical knowledge of John Piper International (Pvt) Ltd with a highly trained and well experienced technical staff have further strengthened the service offered by the company. The key operational team of the company is academically and professionally qualified in the related field and therefore the company has been able to create a significant change among the rivals.

None of the modern termiticides lasts very longer period in the soil due to their environmental friendly degradation. The termiticides available few years ago, such as DDT, Aldrin, and Dialdrin could persist in the soil a longer period, generally more than 10 years. These termiticides belong to a category of Organo Chlorine (Chlorinated Hydrocarbon) which is environmentally hazardous due to its slow degradation and bio accumulation. The Organo chlorine Termiticides are totally phased out in Sri Lanka.

Chemicals currently recommended to control termites cause minimum harm to environment and human beings. The reason for this is that these chemicals will not last long in the soil. This situation further intensifies with environmental conditions such as high humidity and high temperature prevailing in a humid tropical island like Sri Lanka.

Therefore, chemical barriers in the soil created by the termite control process could be depleted from the soil within 3 to 5 years. This has created a great disadvantageous situation for customers who obtain termite control service .Chemicals will have to be applied to the soil by drilling tiles, granites or timber flooring in the building when obtaining termite control service for an already built house. Also most of the house owners express their dislike against the drilling of flooring and it has become a challenge for the termite control field. Overcoming this challenge successfully John Piper International (Pvt) Ltd has introduced the (PIFTRS) pre installed flexi tube termiticide re treatment system titled "Piperguard" to tackle this situation and it has enabled the company to take another step forward in this field.

"Piperguard" pre installed system has been awarded the patent certificate (Patent no. (15141)- IPC- A01M3/00, F16L11/04) and this system has been invented by the Chief Executive Officer of the company Mr. Saman Warusavithana.

The only solution to protect your long term investment from termites is the "Piperguard" re establishing system and it is suitable to fix while the construction work is underway. Once installed, this system can reintroduce termite chemical barriers periodically by lengthening the protection for a lifetime. When obtaining termite control service for your existing residence, using of recommended chemicals in due quantity and in a correct manner will bring in successful results and its essential to select a qualified and suitable termite control service company towards this end.
