It is a common misconception that woodworm
only affects old properties; in fact it can cause damage to newly constructed buildings as well as old.
How to spot if your property has woodworm:
- Small round holes in your woodwork, like the ones in a dart board.
- Powderery dust around said holes, this is known as frass.
- Crumbly edges to boards and joints.
The grub or larvae of the beetle burrows through the timber, feeding on the wood substance, often seriously weakening the
structural timbers throughout the property. Attack is not confined to old timbers and nearly all new wood used in the
construction of buildings is susceptible unless pre-treated. Floor joists, roof timbers and staircases are often particularly prone to attack.
Our surveyors are trained to identify the nature and degree of infestation and will recommend suitable remedial work.
Treatments are usually carried out by pressure spraying the exposed timber with suitable chemicals although in certain
instances, Boron gels and rods maybe used. Timber treatment paste may also be specified in order to provide long term penetration.
Our woodworm services cover the whole of Hampshire so please just get in touch to find out more.
