Our woodworm treatment

Woodworm is a name given to the infestation of a wooden item by the wood-eating larvae of any of many species of beetle. Signs of woodworm usually consist of holes in the wooden item, with live infestations showing powder around the holes. A building with a woodworm problem in the structure or furniture possibly also has a problem with excess damp. The issue could be lack of ventilation in a roof space, cellar or other enclosed space within an otherwise dry building. We have effective woodworm treatments for:

Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium punctatum)

House Longhorn beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus)

Powder Post Beetle (Lyctus brunneus)

Death Watch Beetle (Xestobium rufovillosum)

We offer up to 30 year guarantees on all damp proofing and timber treatments along with optional third party protected guarantee underwritten by Westminster Guarantee Protection Trustees.

Our specialists are able to remove all woodworm from your property and help prevent your property from further risk. Woodworm treatment is a complex process and North East Damp Specialists are highly experienced in this field with a 100% success rate in treatments with no guarantee claims to date.

Once we have removed all woodworm from your property, you can request restoration from our plastering team.



Our dry rot solutions

Dry rot is a wood destroying fungus that digests parts of the wood which gives timber strength and stiffness. It is a fungus that eats away at the cellulose component within wood turning it brown and ultimately reducing the timber to a dry and crumbly state with noticeable cuboidal fractures.

It is caused when dampness combined with lack of ventilation provides the ideal conditions for fungal attack. It can affect all types of property, historic or modern and can grow within the cracks and cavities in the walls feeding off debris and wood behind the plaster.

Because dry rot is such a serious problem, it is important to treat the issue as soon as possible. Without treating the dry rot, it will live and grow, feeding off and destroying the timbers in your property in order to live with serious consequences to the structural integrity of the property.

Once we have removed all Dry Rot from your property, you can request restoration from our plastering team.

We offer up to 30 year guarantees on all damp proofing and timber treatments along with optional third party protected guarantee underwritten by Westminster Guarantee Protection Trustees.
