Timber infestations are unpleasant to deal with, yet our team always rise to the challenge. serving clients throughout the entire area, we deal with all kinds of timber infestation. From woodworm to dry rot treatments, we have the knowledge and experience to assist you.
Most people call any form of beetle infestation woodworm and it is certainly the most common form of beetle infestation in the United Kingdom. The true woodworm beetle (Anobium Punctatum) is quite common and can infest not only flooring and timbers in houses but also can infect timber furniture as well. Where necessary we use the latest water based materials to treat woodworm and of course we offer long term guarantees for the products used.
In many instances we find that natural ventilation below floor boards is compromised, resulting in damp conditions prevailing below floor level. Beetles just love the dark damp timbers which can be found sometimes below the floor and correct below floor ventilation is always to be considered prior to treatment with chemicals.
We will inspect and offer the best treatments for cases of wood corruption.
Over the years we have been asked many times to offer remedial treatments regarding wet and dry rot and we have found that in many instances the cause of these problems has been poor ventilation leading to fungal growth and rot on and in timbers placed below floor level or in poorly ventilated loft spaces. We do, on occasion, use water based insecticides and fungal fluids but generally the use of good ventilation, along with timber replacement where required is all that is needed to eradicate these problems.
Our operatives are expert at investigating these issues and at offering the correct remedial treatments, most often without the use of chemicals etc.
