How Can Our Kensington Woodworm Experts Be Of Assistance?

Where woodworm is concerned, it’s important not to take any chances. The problem usually won’t resolve itself and will only worsen with time. Also, where there is woodworm, there is a strong chance that something else may be amiss too. Here at Prokil, we’re the go-to experts for treating woodworm in Kensington.

What Is Woodworm?

Despite its name, woodworm isn’t, in fact, a worm and the term does not relate to a single species. Woodworm actually refers to several species of wood-boring beetles, specifically, the larval stage. While in the larval stage, woodworm will eat through anything made of wood from furniture and floorboards to joists and rafters. This makes them a serious threat to any property.

As woodworm are usually drawn to high levels of moisture, their presence is often an indication that damp and possibly rot may also be present. You’ll find the various species of woodworm listed below, and the type will depend on the level of moisture present:

  • Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium Punctatum)
  • Deathwatch Beetle (Xestobium Rufuvillosum)
  • House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes Bajulus)
  • Powder Post Beetle (Lyctus Brunneus)
  • Waney Edge Borer (Ernobium Mollis)
  • Wood Boring Weevils

How to Spot Woodworm

While only a professional woodworm Kensington expert can provide you with a rock-solid assessment, there are signs that indicate the presence of woodworm. Such signs include:

  • Holes In Any Timber Structure
  • Tunnels (Galleries) In The Wood
  • Bore Dust (Frass)
  • Crumbling Or Damaged Timbers
  • Dead Beetles

Our Treatment

Upon arrival, we will carry out a thorough inspection to determine the extent of the infestation, the type of woodworm present and whether the infestation is still active. We will also use this opportunity to determine whether there are any other issues present such as damp or rot. Our expert surveyor will then suggest the best treatment and provide you with a competitively priced quote for the work.

In some cases, it may be necessary to lift up floorboards and roof insulation, but these will be reset once the treatment is finished. Our surveyor will apply a water-based insecticide designed to eliminate any woodworm on contact. The application is quick and easy and is usually applied by spray, brush or injected as a gel or paste.

We may suggest replacing any badly damaged timbers – a service that our experts are more than capable of providing. Once the treatment is concluded, the room can usually be reoccupied in just one hour.
