The first step we would recommend when Woodworm is suspected, is to have a detailed survey carried out so that areas of suspected woodworm infestation can be found and determined whether the infestation is active or not. It may be necessary in domestic properties to reveal floorboards and gain access to roof voids. Where structurally necessary, heavily woodworm infested timbers shall be cut away and replaced or repaired by our skilled joiners using resin repair techniques.
Common Furniture Beetle – This is responsible for around 75% of damage to property
House Longhorn Beetle – Most damaging beetle but mainly found in southern counties
Wood Boring Beetle – Associated with damp timber and wet rot decay
Death Watch Beetle – Attacks hardwood and a damaging borer in old buildings
