Wet rot occurs in properties where the timber comes into contact with very humid air or water. In many cases, drainage or plumbing issues are often the root cause.
Identifying wet rot in your Bournemouth property
Wet rot has many tell-tale signs one of which is the movement of floors when you walk on them. This will indicate a serious problem in that the supporting timber in your property has been affected by wet rot. Another indicator of wet rot is water may come out of the affected timber with a slight hint of pressure.
Wet rot is not always visible from the outside, and it is therefore critical to assess the timber in detail. We advise customers that they act quickly once they spot wet rot in their property as it has the ability to damage the structural integrity of timber within 60 days! It is easier to detect wet rot on untreated and unpainted timbers but cracks underneath painted timbers are another indicator.
Causes of wet rot
Wet rot happens when timber is exposed to extremely humid air or comes into contact with water. Plumbing or drainage issues are often the leading cause of wet rot in many properties throughout the South Coast of England. Before treating your property for dry rot, we will conduct an inspection for leaks that could be causing wet rot.
