Dry rot in Bournemouth
At Prokil, we provide a complete treatment for dry rot in Bournemouth. Dry rot is a severe issue which is triggered by damp causing the growth of certain fungi that rapidly digest the wood they infest. This will gradually weaken the wood causing it to lose its stiffness, in structural supports this can be catastrophic as it can cause complete collapse if not treated.
Caused by the Serpula Lacrymans fungus, dry rot usually affects areas which are very humid with temperatures ranging from 20 to 22 degrees. Fortunately, we not only provide highly effective treatments but can also offer you honest and impartial advice on how to avoid recurrences of dry rot.
Should you suspect an infestation, we recommend you contact us immediately for the best treatment for dry rot Bournemouth has witnessed.
Identifying dry rot in your Bournemouth property
With a proper inspection, dry rot can easily be identified by trained professionals such as our company. The symptoms of dry rot include the following:
- Cracked and shrinking timber
- Yellow timber spots in low humid environments
- Development of ‘mycelium’ a white and fluffy fungus
- Fungal spores
- Mushroom-like odour
In most cases, the signs of dry rot in Bournemouth appear fairly early on. However, should you notice the odour, this can be a serious indication of long-lasting damage. Either way, you must act quickly.
