Woodworm damage

The word “woodworm” is a general one that covers the larvae of numerous species of wood-boring insects. The common furniture beetle (Anobium Punctatum), which accounts for 75% of all timber damage in the UK, is typically the bug that causes woodworm. In the wood, the beetle lays its eggs. When the larvae first appear, they feed on the interior of the wood for up to four years and create tunnels and exit holes that weaken and damage the wood in your home. If you have a woodworm problem that isn't dealt with, the resulting damage to the structure can be severe and in some cases irreversible.


Our team at RBS - Damp Proofing can employ either water-based, fogging or fumigation treatments to tackle the woodworm and safeguard your property. Get in touch with us to find out more.

dry rot damage

Dry rot is the result of Serpula Lacrymans - a particular type of wood-destroying fungus that can spread widely if left unchecked, even across intervening masonry. However, it's only ever a problem in damp timber. If a damp course is applied to the timber and the timber is then left to dry out, the dry rot can be promptly nullified. RBS - Damp Proofing in Tooting, Wandsworth are specialists when it comes to dry rot treatments, and we can carry out such a treatment and help protect your property.

Dry rot can migrate to plastered and rendered walls and if not treated it can even spread to cabinets, flooring, and furniture. Contact our team to request a dry rot or woodworm inspection now.


What we do initially is visit your property and assess the nature of the problem and its scale. From there, we can identify the right treatment to apply and start the process of combating the problem. Once resolved, we'll then provide guidance with regard to preventative measures so that the problem does not reoccur.
