Most people that have woodworm have an infestation of the common furniture beetle. This particular beetle can cause damage to the timbers in your property by laying eggs, the larvae then eat their way out before mating and beginning the cycle again. When our team are carrying out woodworm treatment in Reigate we often find woodworm holes from where timbers have previously been treated or where woodworm have naturally died away. Woodworm often returns when it isn’t treated correctly initially. It is very important to treat the underside of the timber as well as the surface so our team will lift the boards in order to treat the joists, all plates and undersides of the floorboards. If you have hard to reach areas we can also use extension lances so we treat all necessary areas.


We pride ourselves on providing the best possible service and will take extra care when working inside your property. All the chemicals we use are low odour and classed as an irritant, meaning you can normally return to your home the same day. We know how inconvenient it can be to have woodworm and we, therefore, make our woodworm treatment in Reigate as effective and efficient as possible.
