1. Stop the Moisture Source
Locate and remove any wall plaster or infected wood to allow direct access to the treatment area. Our pre-treatment work will prevent future dry rot spore from germinating.
2. Remove Damaged Area
All decayed wood and damaged linings such as panelling, skirting, ceilings and plaster are removed to prevent the further spread of the rot fungus.
3. Targeted Dry Rot Treatment
If structural timbers and brickwork are affected by the dry rot fungus then a fungicidal paste is applied to form a protective chemical barrier. This will not only prevent wood rotting fungi from re-establishing itself but prevent attacks from wood-boring insects for many years to come.
4. Damaged Timber Replacement
Once our property technicians is certain that dry rot is fully eradicated from your home, they will begin replacing timber with preservative-treated timbers.
"I had the most excellent experience with Robert from Rentokil when he came over to check out potential dry rot. He was extremely friendly, personable and very patient in his manner, particularly in taking time to explain things careful to me so that I could best understand a situation I knew very little about!"
Mr Hughes -
"Rentokil Property Care dealt with a problem of dry rot in part of our house. The whole process, from the initial survey to establish the nature of the problem to the completion of the work that was required to put it right went very smoothly, and there were no problems."
