Damp & Timber Treatments

Currently the service at Pass & Co. comes with a 10 or 30 year company guarantee as appropriate. A further guarantee is available with Sovereign Chemicals at an additional charge. Details are available upon request.

Our professionals provide low odour two-hour clearance wood preservative or insecticide, for treatment of beetle infestation and some dry rot treatments.

Typical damp proof course treatment would involve the removal of all damp plaster up to a height of approximately 1.2 metres, and the injection of a chemical damp proof course.  This would be followed by specialist re-plastering with a sharp sand and cement render, and a plaster top coat.

Timber treatments

Typical treatment for active infestation of common furniture beetle or deathwatch beetle, would involve the removal of any damaged timber, and treatment with a chemical insecticide.

Damp proofing

At Pass & Co. we do not recommend external injection of chemical damp proof courses. This is because over the course of our 30 plus years experience in the industry, we have found that the results of this method cannot be guaranteed.

As a PCA (Property Care Association) registered company, Pass & Co. has an active commitment to help protect the environment, therefore we do not treat properties for beetle infestation purely as a precautionary measure.
