Woodworm Treatment in Birmingham

Woodworm is found in many buildings and is the result of wood boring beetles eating their way through the timbers of your house. This can cause structural damage because the beetles can bore through and leave large tunnels in the wood, undermining the structural integrity of the beam in question.
The most common places where woodworm can be found are under floorboards, inside wooden furniture, in wooden beams and in window frames.

Signs of woodworm

  • Adult beetles emerging from the holes or present around the house
  • Small round holes in your woodwork
  • Fine, powdery dust around these holes
  • Crumbly edges to boards and joists.

Treatment

Our water-based treatments are designed to be non-odorous and as harmless as possible to people and pets. The treatment is designed to seep deep into the timbers and stay there, preventing further woodworm colonies from developing. We will need to access all areas where the woodworm has colonised, including walls, sub-floors and under floorboards. In some cases, fogging treatment might be required, which involves us peeling back an area of carpet in the affected room and fogging the under-floor space. This will ensure long lasting effects against woodworm. For cautionary purposes, in order to treat woodworm at your property, you may be required to vacate the premises for a short period of time, depending on the type of treatment utilised.
