If you have concerns about woodworm infestation in your property, feel free to reach out to our expert team without delay. Today, we can promptly dispatch one of our local surveyors to assess the situation and initiate the process of eradicating woodworm from your premises.
How To Treat Woodworm
We understand that treating woodworm can be a challenging task, particularly when it comes to selecting the most appropriate treatment method for your property. That’s why we provide three specialized woodworm treatments that effectively combat woodworm infestations in any type of property.
- Water-based woodworm treatment: This highly efficient and odourless solution is sprayed directly into the timber, ensuring it permeates the layers and woodworm flight holes. By doing so, it prevents future infestations. Moreover, this treatment allows you to re-enter the treated area shortly after its completion.
- Fogging treatment: Kent County Basements utilizes unique fogging systems specifically designed to treat spaces beneath flooring and floorboards. With this method, one section of the floorboard is lifted for access, allowing carpets and furniture to remain indoors during the treatment. Treated rooms can be safely occupied within a few hours of the woodworm treatment.
- Fumigation treatment: This specialized process is primarily employed for commercial premises and effectively treats woodworm infestations without causing any damage to the property.
Woodworm Survey Process
To ensure the most effective treatment for your property, our experienced and highly qualified surveyors conduct comprehensive inspections. When it comes to woodworm, our expert surveyors are committed to providing detailed and thorough woodworm treatment surveys.
Here’s an overview of our survey process:
- Initial Assessment: Your surveyor will initiate a phone call, allowing you to discuss and provide details about any concerns or issues you believe you are facing.
- Arranging a Survey: If our surveyor determines that there may be an infestation, they will coordinate with you to schedule a convenient date and time for the survey to take place.
- Property Visit: During the survey, your surveyor will accompany you to the property and thoroughly assess the situation, identifying any issues that are found.
- Final Report: Following the survey, a comprehensive written report will be sent to you either by post or email. This report will outline the identified issues and provide you with a cost estimate for the necessary repairs.
By following this meticulous survey process, we aim to provide you with accurate information and the most suitable treatment options for your woodworm concerns.
Do You Need Woodworm Treatment
If woodworm infests structural timber, it can result in significant property issues. To address this potential risk, we highly recommend seeking professional woodworm treatment if any signs of woodworm are detected in the following areas:
- Roof beams or rafters
- Load-bearing timber
- Other structural timbers
The extent of damage caused by woodworm depends on factors such as the species involved, the size of the infestation, and the type of timber affected. Our trained and qualified professionals can assess all these variables through a woodworm survey when you make a booking. By doing so, we ensure a thorough evaluation of the situation and provide suitable treatment options accordingly.
