Twistfix attacks Woodworm and Rot

During the Spring and Summer months woodworm can be seen exiting flooring and roof timbers in properties everywhere.  Also known as the Common Furniture Beetle they are attracted by light and are often seen near windows, window sills and loft hatches once they have emerged from flight holes in the wood

If left untreated the beetles can cause serious damage to structural timbers.  Whether treating old timbers or new high risk timbers such as joist ends, purlins and wall plates, Twistfix have a timber treatment solution for treating woodworm infestation and preserving wood against rot and fungal decay.
