Woodworm Insurance

Conventional household and contents insurers rarely provide policies that cover for attack by wood boring insects, wood-rotting fungi, rising damp or wall tie corrosion. However, Rentokil Insurance provides protection against all of these worrying problems.

Although early identification of the signs of woodworm can benefit the level of treatment required, it’s not always easy to spot these insects so it can be very beneficial to have a contingency in place.
