If you suspect you have a woodworm problem and would like to get some professional, reliable and trusted advice, we can come out to your property and carry out an appraisal, give advice and provide a full written estimate and report on the remedial works required.
Our woodworm treatment service applies where there is a confirmed, active infestation (or attack) of woodworm. This will usually be accompanied by frass - the yellow coloured dust that is left behind by the wood-boring beetle. Treatment for active woodworm ensures that the attack is halted with a minimum guarantee of 30 years. This means woodworm should not recur for at least 30 years, due to the quality of the chemical treatments we use when treating active woodworm.
We also offer a preventative service which provides total peace of mind that the treated timbers will be free of active woodworm infestation for a further 30 years. This service is especially suitable for older properties where a course of woodworm treatment has been carried out in the distant past but the exact date of treatment is not known. Often mortgage lenders and insurance companies will ask property owners to have a course of woodworm treatment carried out as a precautionary measure.
