Woodworm and Dry Rot Case Study in London

We are proud of our work and show case work we have carried out in our case studies. Our team in London were recently called to inspect a property where there has been suspicion of woodworm infestation. The instructions from the customer were to inspect the timbers of the ground floor bathroom for wood infestation and the cellar area for dry rot.

Whilst inspecting the area of the cellar and underside of the ground floor our surveyor noted that while some timber renewals and a dark stain protection to the joists had already been applied, the active woodworm still remained in some flooring.

A severe outbreak of dry rot was noted to the cellar floor extending to the exposed and painted brickwork of the bin store areas. Our technicians replaced the unsound flooring and chemically treated the entire bathroom using an insecticidal solution.

London is a large, busy and well-populated area. It is the capital city of London and home to many older buildings and properties which can be subject to damp problems such as wet rot, dry rot and woodworm. Due to the construction methods of older properties, they have often not been damp proofed and this can lead to damp proofing issues and serious structural damage.
