Nice orders for EWS Wood preservation!

We recently extended our department wood preservation with fungus clean-up. Fungi and wood harming moulds can cause a lot of damage. Both financially and materially. That is why it is important to tackle and prevent this problem. Besides fungus clean-up we offer wood impregnation, hot air treatment, fumigation and polymer chemical formwork restoration. In doing this, we use the newest techniques.

EWS is going to carry out some nice orders soon, regarding wood preservation and fungus clean-up. Among other things, we are going to treat a wooden roof framework of a farm in Groningen against woodworm. We are going to do this by impregnating with a woodworm killing substance.

We will also do a fungus clean-up in to buildings in Amsterdam. We are going to replace a floor that is infested by fungi and we are going to impregnate a wooden roof to prevent fungi.

Also we will start a project in Haarlem. The floors will be replaced by renovation floors. First we are going to inspect and advice in relation to impairment due to fungi and woodworm. And lastly, we will tackle fungi in Den Haag!

Some nice orders are on their way. Do you also have problems with moist, fungi or mould in wood? Or are you dealing with wood harming insects? Do not hesitate to contact us. Would you like to have more information? Go to: EWS fungus clean-up.

3 Golden tips against mice (and rats)!

It is getting colder outside and that means mice and rats are looking for shelter in warm buildings. The unwanted rodents are the cause of nuisance. They can cause damage to buildings due to nibbling for example. Besides that, they are a health hazard because of the germs they are carrying. Nuisance can be prevented. There are things that you can do to prevent unwanted visits from happening. We provide you with 3 tips!

  1. Hygiene: make sure that food is placed outside of range. Mice are constantly looking for food. Store food in sealed containers for example. Also make sure that there are no remaining food residues. Give mice a hard time accessing food.
  1. Architectural: mice are small and can get through the smallest holes. That is why you should make sure that your home or office doesn’t have a passageway bigger than half a centimetre. In addition, make sure that all doors close for 100% horizontally and
    vertically. You can close ventilation openings with stainless steel mesh.
  1. Personal behaviour: nuisance due to mice and rats can be prevented by changing your behaviour. Make sure that you close all doors and windows when leaving your home or office. By doing this, it is extra hard for rodents to enter the building. Also make sure that you don’t leave behind food residues or waste.

Extra tip against rats:

Rats are often hiding in bushes. That is why you should make sure that plants and bushes don’t grow against your home or office building. This way you’re giving rats a hard time entering the building.

EWS is expanding with fungus clean-up!

Badly ventilated crawl spaces and basements can facilitate the development of wood harming fungi, due to long-term humidity.

This results in a lot of damage, financially and materially. Moreover, fungi and moulds are detrimental to our health. Because of these reasons, it is important to control these fungi and moulds.

EWS Group offers several adequate solutions for this. Want to know more?

New regulations regarding the use of rodenticides against rats and mice

From 2023, poisonous rodenticides against rats and mice are only allowed to be used by certified professionals like EWS Group. The possibility for individuals to buy and use these rodenticides is dismissed within the new regulations. Rodenticides are only to be used within Integrated Pest Management (IPM) by a professional like EWS Pest Control. These rules apply from 2023 for both in- and outside, and only as a last resort. The reason for this is that rodenticides are poisonous and difficult to degrade, which makes them detrimental for other animals.
