Borate Treatments

Keep Your Home Comfortable with Knoxville Moisture Control

When wood decaying fungi infect your home, it may be necessary to use a borate treatment. Once the wood has been infected, it needs specialized treatment to truly get rid of this pest. Without borate, fungi can become reactivated if the wood is exposed to moisture. Borates are the chosen treatment to kill fungus and protect against future infections. With low toxicity for humans, you can feel safe and confident using these treatments in and around your home.

Discover why our Knoxville pest control specialists use borate against harmful wood decaying fungi. Schedule a free appointment by calling (865) 234-4008.

Use Borate to Protect Your Home

At Preferred Pest Control & Turf Management, we use Tim-bor Professional’s to spray your subflooring followed by inspecting to assure that the correct vapor barrier is in place on the ground. Our services are warrantied for up to 10 years. You may have a few more questions in the process below we will go over how our treatment works and some advantages to using Tim-bor Professional products specifically.

We use borate because:

  • It has versatility in its uses
  • It does not discolor wood surfaces
  • It will not corrode construction components
  • It is highly effective and environmentally friendly
  • It does not have a distinct odor

Once borate has been applied to the affected area, it can last for years to come. We also include borate in areas that we identify as potential entry points for other pests for an additional level of protection. Borate protects from dry-wood termites, wood decay fungi, carpenter ants, old house borers and powder post beetles.
