Timber Treatment FAQs

How do I know if woodworm are present?

We closely follow guidelines outlined on the data sheets for all chemicals that we use. It is recommended that treatment areas are not inhabited for an hour after treatment, and our technicians wear masks and gloves as a precaution.

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.
