The Torquay area

Torquay based in Devon on the area of coast line known as the English Riviera is a seaside town is known for the writer Agatha Christie being born in the area and home to the TV show Fawlty Towers. It has a population of over 65,000 people living in the area and has a number of famous buildings such as the Torre Abbey Museum, Oldway Mansion, Cockington Court and Compton Castle.

The wettest months are between November to March with the highest average rainfall occurring in January at 37mm of rain. During these months where the rainfall is at its peak then there is the highest chance that your property could be affected by dampness.

How Can Damp Affect Your Property

Dampness can affect all types of properties from small terraced housing to large grade listing buildings, so it is important to understand what are the different forms of damp. There are 3 main forms of damp and these are:

  • Rising damp
  • Condensation
  • Penetrating damp

All types of damp can lead to more serious issues such as wood rot which can impact on the structural integrity of your building if left untreated for a long period of time.

Professional Woodworm Treatment From Our Specialists

Woodworm can cause damage to any timber in your property. There are many different wood boring beetles, so is important to contact a specialist to ensure that the beetles are identified correctly. The main types of woodworm beetles are:

  • Deathwatch Beetle
  • Common Furniture Beetle
  • Woodboring Weevil
  • Powder Post Beetle
  • House Longhorn Beetle

Woodworm beetles have a 3-year lifecycle and they are only visible towards the end of the lifecycle where woodworm exiting the timber creates the tell tale exit holes in the timber.
