Residential Property Care in Manchester

When it comes to your precious home, we at Rentokil understand the importance of keeping the house safe and stable. With the help of experienced and extremely well trained technicians and surveyors we can provide you with professional woodworm treatment, damp proofing and dry rot treatment tailored to your property. In order to determine the extent of your problem, our surveyor will need to conduct an extensive damp, woodworm or wood rot survey and suggest the best treatment for your particular needs. 

We treat our customers homes as if they are our own, which means you can be sure it is safe for many years to come. 

    • Damp – Indications of damp can often be hard to spot, nonetheless, if you are to  notice any damage to the physical barriers such as walls or floors of your property  then it is possible for damp to be present. Our Certified Surveyors in Remedial Treatment (CSRT) situated in Manchester, are specialists at identifying current and potential future damp problem areas and providing custom damp proofing treatments.
    • Woodworm – Many properties in Manchester are prone to their timbers becoming weak and unsafe due to woodworm infestations. Our Manchester surveyors provide local residents with extensive woodworm surveys outlining the amount of activity, the species and the general extent of your wood-boring beetle problem. Treatments that are conducted based on the surveyors recommendations hold a 30 year woodworm guarantee so you can be assured you, your home and your family are safe hands.  
    • Wood Rot – Wood rot is a fungus that can attack joists, window frames, floorboards, stairs, skirting boards and timbers. The Manchester branch of surveyors are experts in the identification of both dry rot and wet rot within any home; whilst our technicians can then professionally remove any damaged timbers with  preserved-treated timbers preventing wood rot. To ensure your home is properly protected our wood rot treatments are covered by our 30 year wet and dry rot guarantee

Manchester, fringed by the Cheshire Plain to the south and the Pennines to the north. A city of contrast, its buildings shows a variety of architectural styles, ranging from Victorian (where the widespread use of red brick characterises the city) to contemporary structures. Our customers range from owners of historical and period properties to those with modern and refurbished dwellings. Although the dry rot fungus feeds on wood, it is quite effective at colonising non-wood building materials such as plaster, brick and stone in search of more timber; meaning both old and modern households could be in danger. 

Properties of any age, size or history can be exposed to the risks of damage from woodworm, rot and damp. These kinds of problems tend be more prevalent in older buildings, such as Victorian and early 20th Century properties or those that have been refurbished or repurposed over time. Unfortunately, the damage caused by these problems is not always immediately obvious.  

The area surrounding the River Irwell and the River Medlock is more likely to suffer flood damage from surface water flooding (flash flooding after intensive rainfall) than river flood water. 2007, 2010 and 2013 all saw intense rain storms in which widespread surface flooding affected Wilmslow, Hale, Bramhall, Stockport, Cheadle Hulme, Bury and other areas of Greater Manchester. Months after flood waters have retreated, damp may no longer be visible. Yet moisture levels in some timbers within a property, can remain high enough (above about 20%) for dry rot to decay the wood.
