Woodworm is a serious problem that can affect timbers within your property and, if left untreated, can cause serious problems to the timber infrastructure of the building. There are a wide range of woodworm species common to the UK so requesting a woodworm survey that is carried out by a qualified timber specialist is important to ensure that the correct beetle is identified and therefore the right treatment is carried out.
How is a Woodworm Survey Carried Out?
Our woodworm surveyor will:
- Inspect the property to identify the size of the infestation and the type of woodworm beetle.
- Check to see what stage of the lifecycle the wood boring insect is in – it may be that the damage is historic and requires no further treatment.
- Identify the level of repair required and put together a specification for any woodworm treatments deemed necessary to be carried out on the infected areas of timber
- Assess if there are any other of property care issues associated with infestation such as dry rot or damp.
Once the survey has been carried out our team of specialists will provide a report detailing all the issues found in the property highlighting if any treatments need to be carried out. Our specialist woodworm treatments come complete with a long-term guarantee.
