Woodworm infestation in the home can cause serious damage to structural and decorative timber. Woodworm treatment services from Willow Renovation͛s woodworm specialist ensure that woodworm damage to your property is minimised and the risk of future woodworm attacks is eliminated. Woodworm is a generic name for an entire group of beetles that complete part of their life cycle in timber and can be found anywhere where there is timber in the home. Woodworm could be found in roof rafters, floor joists, floor boards, skirting boards and any wooden furniture.
Our specialist will complete a woodworm assessment to analyse the affected areas and the type of woodworm infestation. This may require the floorboards to be lifted or roof insulation removed. The specialist will then apply an insecticidal formulation to the affected timber which eliminates the insects on contact as they pass through the timber. This method of woodworm treatment allows the homeowner to reoccupy the room the same day.
The cost for a woodworm treatment depends entirely on the property size, what exactly needs to be treated and how big the area is. Under current environmental directives we only treat areas where there is active infestation. Our specialist can assess a property first and confirm whether or not active woodworm is present. If not, then your timber will not need any treatment.
