Termite infestation can spell doom to your favourite furniture. A swarm of hungry termites will happily gnaw their way through anything from the kitchen cabinet to your expensive rocking chair on the balcony. What’s worse is that termites are difficult to kill once they make homes inside your furniture.
So, what can you do to keep these uninvited “guests” away from your furniture?
Build Furniture with Termite-Resistant Plywood
The anti-termite plywood is treated with anti-termite chemicals and made of wood species that are less susceptible to termite attack. Greenply has a wide selection of termite and borer-proof plywood that resists termite infestation.
Control the Quantity of Moisture in Your Home
Termites thrive in humid ambience, and if your furniture is wet or moist, then it’s better for them. After all, the softer the wood, the easier it is to chomp through it. So, to prevent the entry of termites, you need to control the level of humidity in your home. You can do this by keeping excess water out of your kitchen, bathroom, and garden, as well as keeping your furniture dry at all times. Also, installing a dehumidifier in a central location in your home might help.
Here’s What We Have in Store for You:
You can opt for boiling waterproof and boiling water-resistant plywood by Greenply such as Green Platinum, Green Club 700, Green Club 5 Hundred and Green Gold. It also comes with the properties of being anti-termite and borer-proof plywood. Then you can be rest assured that your furniture stays long, having the ability to withstand water and harsh weather conditions.
Keep Furniture Away from the Soil
A garden in your backyard with furniture placed there might look inviting for relaxing in the afternoon, but you need to keep wooden furniture away from the ground. Otherwise, termites may bore directly into the wood through the soil and get inside the furniture. A tiled base to place under your furniture might help you prevent this.
Be On the Lookout for Powdered Wood
If you see powdered wood near pieces of furniture, it indicates there might be an infestation inside that piece of furniture right now. This is when you should contact an exterminator, to ensure those bugs do not spread to other furniture as well.
