Timber Treatment FAQs

What is the best time of year to treat woodworm?

There is no ‘wrong time’ to treat woodworm (Common Furniture Beetle) because of the persistent nature of the treatment materials.

Dry rot and wet rot can affect buildings of all ages, and if decay is discovered it should be identified and remedial action should be taken without delay. Fungal decay occurs in timber which becomes wet for some time and is the result of the attack by one of a number of wood-destroying fungi.

It is very important that the type and cause of the fungal decay are correctly identified before any corrective action can be considered. It is for these reasons that it is important that a detailed diagnostic inspection is carried out by a competent specialist.
