Woodworm & Dry Rot Treatment
Woodworm treatment and advice in Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey and Oxfordshire
There are many types of insects that use wood as a habitat. Some are restricted to the forest, others can live in timber that has been felled and incorporated into the home. The most commonly known wood boring insect is known as Woodworm. Pre-purchase surveys frequently call for woodworm surveys to be conducted and treatment carried out if required.
Wood decay is caused by various fungi (of which dry rot is just one), which grow when the environmental conditions are right. Wood rot usually occurs when the moisture level of wood becomes elevated (>28%) and is sustained at a level (>20%) that will support fungal growth. Spores of a variety of fungal species are present in the air and these spores will germinate on wood and cause rot.
The correct diagnosis of timber defects is essential before any work is carried out including dry rot treatment, wet rot treatment and woodworm treatment.
