Rental Properties and Dampness

There are certain rules and regulations in place when it comes to landlords and their rental properties, one of which is the maintenance and control of damp. If you are a tenant or landlord and notice damp within a property, it is important that a professional is contacted to help resolve the issue at hand. Whether it is rising, penetrating or construction damp, left untreated it can cause many different problems.

In most cases, a landlord is responsible for the damp that has appeared in a property. Usually there is a term implied into your tenancy agreement which states that the landlord is responsible for the exterior and structure of your property. If there is damp, no matter what type, it will be their responsibility to fix. It is important that as a tenant any signs of damp are reported to the landlord, allowing them to resolve the issues.

Timber Treatment

The team at Aquafoss are on hand to help if you need your timber or woodwork to be treated. Woodworm is one of the most common forms of damage that affects items of timber, including furniture and skirting. Damage occurs as a result of the wood-eating larvae and there are different types of beetles which can be classed as woodworm, including:

  • Woodboring weevils
  • Ambrosia Beetles
  • Wharf Borer
  • Bark Borer Beetle
  • Powderpost Beetle
  • Common Furniture Beetles
  • House Longhorn Beetle
  • Deathwatch Beetle

There are a few signs to look out for when it comes to woodworm and being aware of these can make the treatment easier in the long run. The most obvious sign of a problem comes from recognising persistent holes within an item of timber. If the infestation is live, then the holes will usually be accompanied by small amounts of powder. These holes are essentially small burrows for the eggs to be laid in prior to hatching.

Treatment will vary depending on the extent of your problem, but our team are on hand to help you to remove the presence of the pest. For more, please feel free to get in contact with us.

Milton Keynes and the Surrounding Area

The town of Milton Keynes, or MK as it is referred to by locals, has a large population of around 230,000 people.
