Finding a good Bristol pest control company is necessary if you want to ultimately solve your woodworm or damp problems. These dilemmas, when left unfixed or not properly treated can lead to the permanent and irreversible destruction of properties. In order to spot the best pest control provider, it would help if you know a little about the processes and treatments used to solve them. This way, the chances of you getting low-quality service can be lessened.
Bristol Woodworm treatment options are divided into two types namely the water based and the fogging procedures. Both treatments are designed in such a way that one of the lifecycles of the beetles causing the problem can be disrupted so that they develop into adults. The water based treatment is commonly used if the homeowner wants to lessen the exposure of people, pets, and the environment to chemicals. Fogging treatment, on the other hand, is commonly used in treating floorboards and flooring.
A damp proofing Bristol procedure involves the application of a barrier to the affected walls of the building that will prevent the climbing of moisture into the structure. Here, a damp proof course (DPC) may be introduced to the wall in the form of a horizontal barrier which is created to resist moisture that rises through the wall in the form of capillary action. Similar to this is the use of a damp proof membrane (DPM) which can be used for floors.
If it is already too late for a building to be fitted with a damp proof course, another option is the use of a concentrated siloxane/silane cream which will be introduced into the affected structure. When the substance is introduced into a surface, it will release a vapour that will then create a water-repellent resin that will stop the climbing of ground water.
