Gloucester Damp, Rot & Woodworm Treatment Specialists

Rentokil Property Care treatment services

We regularly deal with the most common property care issues throughout Gloucester including wood-boring insects, rising damp, condensation and wet or dry rot. Backed by the resources of a national company, we provide quality local 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 your property. Our extensive damp inspections are carried out by qualified and experienced surveyors in the Gloucester area. They will diagnose the extent and type of dampness - providing you with 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 within your property.
    • Basement waterproofing & tanking - helps to transform damp basements, cellars and vaults into dry habitable spaces. Our local, 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 - replacing moisture heavy air with fresh, filtered air and maintaining these humidity levels will reduce or eliminate surface condensation (the main cause of mould growth in your property). Our local experts will provide you with eco-friendly and innovative solutions to ventilate your apartment, bungalow or house.

Gloucester & surrounding area

Gloucester rests on the eastern bank of the River Severn, sheltered by the Cotswolds to the east, with the Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills rising to the west and north of the Cathedral city. The Gloucester and Sharpness Canal runs from Gloucester's docks to the Severn Estuary, allowing larger ships to reach the docks. Gloucester’s location does leave it vulnerable to river and tidal flooding, as was seen in 2007 when hundreds of homes were flooded, and the entire city was without piped water for 17 days. Excess damp from flooding can lead to structural damage and timber decay from penetrating damp or rising damp. Whilst problems such as dry rot can occur months afterwards, in voids or under floorboards which are out of sight. Our team of qualified damp specialists can resolve your damp problems, keeping your property in good order.

Gloucester was founded in AD 97 by the Romans. Some medieval and Tudor period gabled and half-timbered houses survive from earlier periods of Gloucester's history. The New Inn, for example, is Grade I listed and is the most complete surviving example of a medieval courtyard inn with galleries in the UK. Gloucester’s historic Victorian docks are the most inland port in Britain. The wharfs, warehouses and the docks have recently undergone refurbishment; some now house the Gloucester Waterways Museum, while others were converted into residential flats, shops and bars. Buildings from any era, whatever their size can become susceptible to pests like woodworm or issues with condensation dampness. Our team of local Gloucester based, property care professionals will help keep your property in perfect condition.
