Woodworm Treatment Costs
Woodworm is a common problem and it’s one that can affect almost any household. The main issue is that usually by the time the infestation is noticed, it has been present for a long time. The larvae of wood boring beetles can live in wood for several years and eventually they’ll bore their way out. This is when you’re likely to notice the tell-tale signs including small mounds of dust around exit holes.
While woodworm isn’t harmful to your health, it can put your property at risk. If infestations are left untreated, they can escalate and result in costly structural repairs.

How much does woodworm treatment cost?
If active woodworm is detected, treatment is required. The type and extent of the treatment required will be determined following a specialist timber survey. The cost of woodworm treatment for a standard domestic property will be in the region of £800-£1200. Treatment of the entire property is not always required however which is why it’s always a good idea to ask someone to view the property rather than providing a quote over the phone.
