Signs of Woodworm

The key to stopping woodworm before they cause irreparable harm to your property is identifying them early. You may not realise that you have a woodworm problem until the resulting damage becomes visible. If left untreated woodworm can seriously weaken timber - this may lead to structural failure in your property.

If you have spotted the signs of woodworm listed on this page we would recommend booking a survey with Rentokil Property Care. Our qualified and experienced surveyors have years of experience when it comes to delivering professional woodworm treatment
