How Does Our Woodworm Treatment Works
INSPECTION: We start with a careful top-to-bottom property check for successful woodworm treatment. We determine the type of woodworm and the severity of the infestation to choose the most appropriate eradication method.
TREATMENT: Once the problem has been identified, your woodworm specialist will use the proper treatment technique to destroy the infestation. Usually, that includes injecting the timber-based items in the property with a powerful repellent. Our solutions have a long-lasting residual effect and protect your wooden materials from further problems.
PREVENTION: Treating woodworm isn’t the end of our job. Once we remove the threat, your woodworm specialist will give you valuable tips and pointers on protecting your property from future infestations. If you’ve booked our insured service, we can visit you another two times for the next three months – free of charge – this will ensure a complete eradication of the woodworm population.
Types of Woodworm Damage in Homes & Commercial Properties
- Damage to antiques and furniture made of wood
- Structural weakening of roof timbers and other softwood elements
- Damage to hardwood flooring and other wide-pored wood elements
Damage type and severity depend highly on the variety of wood and the woodworm species infesting it. Most of the time, you can spot the signs of infestations, such as holes, wood dust and even tiny beetles emerging. In other cases, the wood-boring insects tunnel through the centre part of the timber, causing more damage than it can appear from the outside, and- if untreated, woodworm can cause a tremendous amount of destruction.
