Woodworm is a common issue in many households, which is why professional woodworm treatment in Liverpool can be a wonderful service to have. These pests are not always visible to the naked eye and they are especially common in homes that are fitted with floorboards or wooden roof joists. As a home owner you want to maintain your home, which is why professional help is needed. Woodworms are beetles that bore into wood, causing structural damage if left untreated. It’s unlikely that you will ever see these creatures in action, but you will definitely be able to see where they’ve been.
These beetles can enter your home by flying in, or through old second hand furniture that is brought into the home. They usually appear in summer so it’s a good idea to get professional help during this time. It’s always a good idea to know how to recognise the signs of woodworm so that you can get Liverpool woodworm treatment from the professionals at Apex Damp & Wall Ties Ltd. We have recently completed various local projects, including ridding a Liverpool home of a severe woodworm infestation, saving the home owner quite a lot in terms of potential structural damage.
There are a few common signs of woodworms and they include tunnels in the wood, also referred to as “galleries” which can often be hidden. You should also look out for bore dust, or “frass”, caused by adult beetles emerging from the wood. Crumbly edges can also occur in floorboards or roof joists, as well as fresh holes in the wood that are usually oval or round with sharp edges.
