Woodworm treatments Yorkshire
Woodworm is the name for wood boring insects that lay their eggs in timber. When they hatch, the smaller larvae feed on the wood, leaving several small tunnels and holes. Naturally, this damaged and weakens the structure of your timber.
What is Dry and Wet Rot?
Dry rot is a type of fungus that attacks timber in buildings. Symptoms of a dry rot problem include cracking or shrinking of the timber. A mushroom-like smell can often be smelt where dry rot exists.
Wet rot occurs when the wood in your home is affected by high levels of moisture. Several types of fungi can find their way into the timber weakening the structure and causing cracking.
To deal with the problem of dry or wet rot, our specialised help is required. We'll conduct a thorough survey of the suspected areas, before removing and replacing any affected timber. Once this has been accomplished, we'll ensure your property is protected for the future.
To remove dry rot from masonry we drill the masonry and inject fungicidal preservative to the walls affected. Further to the removal of the fungus and moisture, new timbers will be placed. This ensures isolation from the masonry and adequate ventilation to the floor voids. When floor voids cannot be adequately ventilated we may need to replace in concrete.
Wet rot treatment is usually less expensive than Dry rot, as the removal of fungal growth is a simpler process. It does not normally require chemical treatment. Removal of the moisture sources, creating a dry environment and timber replacement will still be required.
To ensure sure the fungal decay is completely removed we may need to make partial or complete floor replacements and walls may need re-plastering to guarantee the best service possible.
