Woodworm is not a particular type of beetle; the term refers to the larvae of any kind of wood-boring beetle, the scale of the destruction caused by woodworm is dependent on the type of beetle present and can result in major structural damage.
K & L Damp Proofing will carry out a comprehensive survey to see whether the woodworm is still active or has been previously treated, providing you with an estimate based on our findings. We inspect each room and apply our treatment spray beneath the floorboards, laying the floorboards again before spraying over the top.
The woodworm treatment is completely safe as all fluids are water based, low odour and conform to COSH regulations. Our work causes only minimum disruption, with homeowners able to re-enter their properties after just one hour.
If the woodworm infestation is predominant, our timber replacement may be required and we will advise you honestly if this is the case. All woodworm treatments are subject to a 10 year guarantee as standard, or you can choose a guarantee of up to 30 years underwritten by your insurance company, giving you complete peace of mind.
