Woodworm treatment: do I need to move out?
Do I have to move out when your men are spraying the property for woodworm ?
- Fortunately the days are long gone when the industry used to apply solvent based, high odour treatments fluids which meant that areas being treated had to be vacated for 48 hours.
The modern formulations used by Peter Cox today are generally water based, low odour micro-emulsions which enable rooms to be re-occupied after just 1 hour.
All the treatments we use are vetted and accredited by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
My pantry floor rotted and when I took the floor up there was a six foot void with about six inch of water, I believe this is the water table, we have also noticed a musty smell at the bottom of my stairs, I think we could have the same problem.
Could you suggest a solution and do you think my insurance would cover this?
I have a 3 storey house built in 2000. My bathroom is on the 3rd floor and I noticed mushrooms growing out of the skirting alongside the toilet. We have lifted the lino, removed the skirting and the tiled frame enclosing the pipework.There was a lot more ground damp, black soot on the walls and more mushrooms. Much wetter below the bend on the overflow pipe which we have tightened. Do we need to do more?
I have discovered woodworm in some furniture in our home. Am I best to dispose of them or what is the treatment to cure it ?
