Poole Woodworm Treatment

The term “Woodworm” is technically inaccurate as the damage is caused by beetle larvae, as opposed to actual worms. Woodworm can be catastrophic if left unfettered and can cause damage to critical structural beams of a building. It has been known to cause the collapse of buildings that rely on timber ballast and strength. The damage wrought is dependent on the type of larvae, some examples are:woodworm treatment Poole

  • Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium Punctatum)
  • House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes Bajulus)
  • Powder Post Beetle (Lyctus Brunneus)
  • Deathwatch Beetle (Xestobium Bufuvillosum)
  • Waney Edge Borer (Ernobium Mollis)
  • Wood Boring Weevils

If it’s left undetected and without woodworm treatment Poole, House Longhorn larvae can cause extensive damage and loss of structural integrity throughout timber sections. This is especially prominent in sapwood, which can be used as roof timbers, and therefore roofing has been known to cave in due to woodworm infestations.

Woodworm can be hard to detect, but there are warning signs that an active woodworm infestation is present. Signs to look for are:

  • Holes in the timber – usually round or oval shaped, clean edges and vary between one and two millimetres in diameter.
  • Tunnels – also called ‘galleries’ and come in various sizes depending on species of larvae
  • Bore dust- Known as Frass, can be found inside boreholes and galleries, or below infestation when excavated from the timber
  • Crumbling or damaged timber – occurs in extreme cases, sometimes confused with dry rot
  • Dead beetles – in or around the infestation area and windowsills, most prominent in summer

Tudor Remedial Services offer effective woodworm treatment Poole, and at very competitive prices. We can be flexible and work around your schedule because we know time is precious. If you think you’ve got an infestation, we can come and inspect the affected area of timber and ascertain which culprit has caused the damage. We’ll determine if the infestation is still active, whether the damage is definitely woodworm, and not dry or wet rot, and advise if any timber needs replacing.

The key to establishing the full extent of the woodworm issue is a keen eye. The holes woodworm beetles bury out of are tiny and easily overlooked or interpreted as something else. We always ensure our woodworm treatment Poole services inspect all the timbers in the area very closely, even timbers that are not exposed. Once we know the extent of the woodworm infestation, an appropriate woodworm treatment can be recommended and implemented.

The area will be cleaned of dust, larvae’s faecal matter and debris. If the infestation is active, but the timber isn’t beyond saving, we’ll apply an insecticide specifically designed to eliminate woodworm on contact as it soaks into the timber. The room only needs to remain vacant for one hour using this method, which makes it an extremely convenient woodworm treatment in Poole. The insecticide is either a water-based spray or injectable paste/gel.

Our services are available for domestic and commercial clients, and we won’t be beaten for service and value on woodworm treatment Poole. If you’re in doubt, it’s always better to have a survey completed instead of risking further potential damage. Our professionally qualified woodworm treatment Poole can provide a personalised experience with the survey, treatment and aftercare.

Other Services

It is sometimes confused that woodworm is the cause of certain timber related damage when it’s actually caused by damp in poorly ventilated or insulated areas. Our Damp proofing services can prevent the need for woodworm treatment in Poole, as damp can make timber more susceptible to infestation.

If you’ve got peeling wallpaper and plaster, lifted floor tiles, discoloured patches, mould or dank smells, it’s likely the cause is damp, and it can be caused by many different things, with each having a different classification and remedy.

Traumatic damp is caused by burst pipes or radiator issues that are allowing water to damage surrounding areas. Penetrating damp is related to structural issues, such as; poor maintenance or defective design and construction. Rising damp is more prominent in rain soaked or water logged areas and is caused by upward capillary pull and evaporation. This causes the water to rise and soak into woodwork and plaster.

Contact Tudor Remedial Services whether you need damp proofing or woodworm treatment Poole. It’s better to have it surveyed and given the all clear, than risk it and suffer the consequences.
