Timber Treatment FAQs

How do I know if woodworm are present?

Property Conservation Services Ltd provides you with an insecticidal fluid to spray all affected timbers and, in some cases, surrounding timbers. Upon contact with the treatment, the insects are exterminated. This can happen sometime after treatment, as the Common Furniture Beetle larvae mature and come to the surface of the timber and into contact with the insecticide.

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.
