Dry rot is typically caused by the Serpula Lacrymans fungus. This fungus causes wood to decay and will seriously compromise the integrity of any timber that it comes into contact with. This fungus usually thrives in particularly humid areas with temperatures between 21 and 22 degrees.
How can I tell if my Brighton home has been affected by dry rot?
Unlike woodworm which can be difficult to stop, dry rot is fairly obvious and easy to detect with regular inspections. Signs of infestation can include any of the following:
- Shrinking and cracking of the timber
- Yellow spots on the timber (lower humidity)
- White and fluffy fungus called Mycelium (higher humidity)
- Fungal spores
- Mushroom-like odour
Fungal spores will usually increase in size as the dry rot worsens. By the time the odour develops, this is usually a sign that catastrophic damaged has occurred.
How will Prokil treat the dry rot?
Dry rot will spread quickly upon initial infestation; this could lead to your woodwork disintegrating and the destruction of your Brighton home. In order to assess the extent of the damage caused by dry rot, it is essential that you allow Prokil to perform a professional investigation immediately.
We can help you detect dry rot, as well as ascertain the extent of the infestation and identify its cause. Dry rot is usually caused by moisture, in which case we will pin down the source of moisture and remove it.
Once the cause has been removed, all the infected wood needs to be taken out and replaced with wood that has been treated with a fungicide. This treating process must also include any unaffected wood as well. Lastly, any remaining dry rot must be purged.
At Prokil, we can provide the right treatments as well as reactive maintenance for your home to prevent any outbreak of dry rot. If you believe that your Brighton home may be infected with dry rot, contact the dry rot experts at Prokil as soon as possible.
