How Rentokil Property Care can help

We regularly deal with the most common of UK property care issues including wood-boring insects, rising damp, condensation and wet or dry rot. Backed by the resources of a national company, we provide quality property care services, tailored to the needs of our customers from residential homes to a wide variety of businesses, large and small.

    • Damp proofing treatment - helps to prevent water being absorbed through walls or floors into the interior of a property. Our extensive inspections are by qualified and experienced surveyors. Who will diagnose the extent and type of dampness - providing recommendations for the most effective treatments to solve the damp issue affecting your property.
    • Wet or dry rot treatment - helps to eliminate wood destroying fungus that can weaken and damages structural timbers. We offer professional diagnosis of the type of rot affecting the building, and will tailor a solution to protect your property from further damage. All our rot treatments carry a 30 year guarantee.
    • Woodworm treatment - helps to control woodboring beetles and their larvae in infected timbers. Our qualified surveyors will complete a comprehensive woodworm survey accessing the extent of any infestation, the species of woodworm involved and recommend targeted, effective treatment to eliminate the pest before it can spread any further.
    • Basement waterproofing & tanking - helps to transform damp basements, cellars and vaults into dry habitable spaces. Our experienced and qualified surveyors will carry out an inspection survey of your subterranean area and discuss your requirements for this space. They will then recommend suitable options and design a waterproofing system specifically to meet your requirements.
    • Condensation solutions - help to ventilate any kind of property whether apartment, bungalow or house. Replacing the moisture laden air with fresh, filtered air and maintaining humidity levels to reduce or eliminate surface condensation - the main cause of mould growth.

Yeovil & surrounding area

The name Yeovil means ‘town on the river’. Its strategic position on the Fosse Way (now A37) between Dorchester and Ilchester was vital to the Romans and it remains an important market town. The historic centre is built around the noble 14th century church of St John the Baptist, and Hendford Manor also close to the town centre. Built around 1720 this Grade II listed building has since been converted into offices. Refurbished and restored buildings, such as Foundry House (a former glove factory) now converted into a restaurant and offices with new shops and houses built on the surrounding site. This gives Yeovil a varied mix of architecture. Properties of any age or size can become susceptible to pest problems such as woodworm or issues with condensation.

Yeovil has a temperate climate which is generally wetter and milder than the rest of the country. Atlantic depressions are  vigorous in autumn and winter, and most of the rainfall during those seasons is from this source, with November to March having the highest mean wind speeds. Locations that have experienced frequent fluvial flooding , including communities at Ilchester, Mudford, Yetminster, Stoford, Thorny, Yeovilton, and Bridgehampton have flood walls to help protect them. Excess damp from flooding or prolonged heavy rains can enter through the fabric of a property leading to possible structural damage and timber decay from penetrating or rising damp. Problems such as dry rot may occur months after the water levels have returned to normal, in voids or under floorboards which are out of everyday sight.
