DAMPX timber treatments
The process starts with a survey of your property. Understanding it’s construction and identifying the source of the issue. Where required we will remove and replace timbers that are no longer fit for purpose. Specialist fungicides are applied to remaining timbers to protect against further infestation. The problem with timbers, is in large they’re hidden. Left to their own devices the issues can spread causing more severe damage over time.
Dry rot can only grow and continue its path of destruction if the wood that sustains it remains wet. Humid subfloors therefore provide the perfect environment for dry rot to grow. Untreated and left in the perfect environment, dry rot can cause extensive damage of structural timbers, skirting boards, window linings etc.
Wet rot is very common and can affect any wooden object that is allowed to become excessively wet for a period.
The spread of Wet rot is typically limited to areas of timbers that are in contact with excess water levels.
As with all fungi, identifying the source of moisture before deciding on methods of repair is essential.
Woodworm is the name commonly given to wood boring insects. Although it’s often associated with Common Furniture Beetle. Left unchecked, Woodworm can manifest into a more widespread issue leading to costly repairs. The most obvious sign that your timbers might be suffering with Woodworm especially Common Furniture Beetle is the very small 1-2mm holes on the surface of the timber. Again, the best means of prevention is to simply keep your timbers dry!

We had three damp surveys completed by different companies at our property with DAMPX being one of them. The attention to detail of their survey was on a completely different level. The other companies were in and out within 30 minutes. DampX were here for around 2 hours! Unbelievable service and this was a free survey!
