Woodworm is the result of wood-boring beetles' larvae feeding on the timber in your property. Early treatment and stopping woodworm before they cause irreversible harm to the timber in your property is key. Woodworm could lead to structural issues if not dealt with quickly and appropriately.
Once woodworm beetles have laid their eggs in crevices and cracks in floorboards, timbers, furniture, joists, wooden tools and woodwork in your property, you may not see any visible evidence for years making it tough to know if you have a woodworm infestation. There are some signs to look out for though including:
Laying their eggs in cracks and crevices in furniture, floor boards and woodwork, the larvae hatch and burrow into the timber and can remain there for years, once they reach adulthood they emerge to start the cycle again, repeating the process and causing further damage. If left untreated woodworm can lead to irreversible damage and even structural failure with timbers having to be replaced. Over time, weakened structural components such as roofing, timber joists and load-bearing wood could give way resulting in a large repair expense or worse; serious injury.
Carrying out a thorough assessment of your property or home, our experienced inspectors will detemrine the extent of the woodworm infestation and recommend to best course of woodworm treatment. No people or pets should be present at the time that rooms are treated and for a few hours after, however, our water based woodworm treatment is odourless when dry and only one course of treatment is required.
Our woodworm treatment is highly effective and backed by a thirty year guarantee. The woodworm treatment remains in the layers of the timber and holes to prevent further infestations, any eggs and emerging adult beetles will die, breaking the woodworm life cycle.
