Dry Rot Treatment in Birmingham

For the treatment of dry rot, our highly trained property experts in Birmingham must first identify and solve any damp issues prior to any dry rot treatments been applied. Dry rot can only occur when the timber has a moisture content in excess of 20%.

Dry rot can affect timbers in both domestic and commercial properties and is a widespread concern across the United Kingdom. The reason for the concerns is that this wood destroying fungi can ultimately destroy timbers that give the building structure strength and integrity.

Woodworm Treatment in Birmingham

For woodworm issues, our highly experienced team must first identify what type of wood boring insect is affecting the property. An effective and efficient water-based treatment can then be used on the timbers. The technician sprays insecticide onto the wood. After the woodworm treatment has been absorbed into the wood any emerging woodworm are killed as they exit the wood.
