Damp and Timber Specialists for 50 years

High levels of moisture in wood can make it more vulnerable to woodworm. It can weaken the fibres, making it easier for larvae to feed and for adult wood-boring beetles to lay their eggs.

This is why woodworm infestations are often found in damp and humid environments, such as basements, crawl spaces, lofts and other areas that are poorly ventilated.

However, not all woodworm infestations are caused by damp, and there are many other factors that can contribute to an infestation. For example, woodworm can also be introduced into a home or building through infested furniture or other wooden objects.

Regular inspections of wooden structures and furniture can help you catch any potential infestations early, regardless of the cause. If you suspect that you have a woodworm infestation, it’s important to take action promptly to prevent it from spreading and causing further damage.
