Woodworm like nothing better than dark, wet places, like damp timbers. Not only will we exterminate your current infestation, we will locate and solve the source of the damp to prevent future occurrences.

Basement Waterproofing & Tanking

Outside water naturally finds a way in through cellars and basements and having them suitably waterproofed and tanked is the only reliable way to prevent it from happening.

Rising Damp

Rising damp is when groundwater is sucked up through porous building materials, affecting the interior walls. Our team will be only too happy to recommend the best course of treatment if your home is currently affected.
