Structural timbers are essential for both residential and commercial buildings and need to be protected against beetle attack and decay so that the structure is not compromised. Our specialist operative will thoroughly survey inside and out to enable us to provide a detailed report & quotation with supporting images for remedial work. This will then be sent through to you.
PGH® Pest Control surveys are conducted by in house PCA certificated experts to ensure you are fully aware of all woodworm and associated problems, like wood rot or damp issues that a building may have.
Using The Correct Method Is Vital as there are many types of methods available to treat different situations, properties and timber types.
The most commonly incorrectly used method to treat and control woodworm is a normal spray. It is highly advisable that only timber specialist treatment companies are used. For example large dimensional timbers can not be sprayed for effective control, you would need injection treatment or paste on treatment which gives much higher penetration in to the wood.
Because we use our specialist methods this enables us to treat the wood correctly and therefore guarantee treatment.
