Treating Timber and Woodworms at Properties in Essex and the South East

In nature, wood is both home and food for rot, bacteria, fungi, and many insects. As a property owner, it is important to protect the wood in your construction. While most building timbers today are pre-treated, many older properties in Buckhurst Hill, Essex, and the surrounding area may have been built with more yielding stuff. Rely on the experienced team at Property Care Services Ltd to deliver the wood and woodworm treatments that you need. Alongside wood treatments, we also complete damp surveys and provide methods of proofing.

Evaluating Your Timber

If you suspect timber damage in your property, we can inspect and evaluate which parts may be at risk and lay out a cost-effective action plan. We are sensitive to your home environment and only use treatments that are absolutely necessary to protect your property from potential damage. The classes of timber treatments for construction are as follows:

Class 1 - Best Used inside in a Dry Environment, Like Upper Floor Joists

Class 2 - Good for inside Where There Is Danger of Damp, Like Roof Battens

Class 3 - Suitable for outside Doors and External Joinery

Class 4 - Should Be Used for Any Structure in Direct Contact with Water or Soil

Dealing with Woodworm Early

Woodworm is a catchall term for any wood-boring insect. There are, in fact, several types, and the treatment for each varies. Wood-boring beetles can eat inside your timbers from eight months old up to 14 years old, so it's crucial to correctly identify and treat your infestation as soon as possible. Left untreated, the infestation will continue and result in significant structural damage to your property.
