Insect Pest Eradication

The way nature intended

Ecological - Non Toxic - Sensitive – 100% Effective

Preserving Works of Art, Antiques and their Value: The Thermo Lignum WARMAIR Treatment is an integral Part of Conservation and Restoration when it comes to eradicating Woodworm and Moths

We target pests such as woodworm (Anobium punctatum), death watch beetle (Xestobium rufovillosum), powder post beetle (Lyctus brunneus), longhorn beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus), moths, carpet beetle (Anthrenus verbasci), etc. on the one hand, as well as fungi such as dry rot. 

The eco-friendly Thermo Lignum technique uses only naturally occurring elements (air and water), sound biological principles and established laws of physics to eradicate insects in objects ranging from art to architecture: furniture, frames, sculptures, upholstery, textiles, structural timber and architectural components. 

Our International client base extends from National Institutions, Museums and Galleries, through major Antiques Auction Houses and Fine Art Dealers, to leading Restorers and Conservators and a whole host of private collectors, all of whose endorsements are a testimony to the unparalleled achievements of the unique Thermo Lignum process.
