Woodworm is a generic term used to describe the damage done by any of a number of different types of wood boring beetle. In most cases infestations can be determined by the presence of tiny holes in the furniture and timbers within the property. An active beetle infestation can normally be identified by the presence of bore dust surrounding the holes. The Deathwatch Beetle however often completes it’s entire life cycle within the timber, making it hollow without leaving any obvious tell tale signs.
ASRS Preservation Ltd are qualified to identify the type of infestation and investigate the structural integrity of the wood. If an infestation is detected it can normally be treated by simply spraying an almost odourless solution on the affected timbers. In some cases a deeper penetrating emulsified wood paste preservative may be necessary and in extreme cases timbers may need replacing.
