Wet Rot Treatment in Reading
If you suspect wet rot in your property call Prokil today for specialist treatment and preventative services that are unmatched. Wet rot in your Reading home is a serious issue that can have a major impact on your properties infrastructure.
The fungi that cause wet rot, such as Poria Vaillantii, is usually found in waterlogged timber. This can often occur as a result of flooding usually due to issues with your plumbing or drainage. The consequences of a sodden timber frame cannot be understated with a very likely risk of complete failure resulting in the building collapsing.
How can I tell if my Reading home has been affected by wet rot?
One of the most obvious signs of wet rot is the presence of excess water that will emerge from affected timbers whenever you apply pressure against it. Additionally, you may also notice that your floors will begin to shift when you walk across them. If you notice either of these problems, it is imperative that you act fast.
Wet rot can irreparably damage your property in as little as 60 days from the point of infestation. It can also be hard to spot unlike dry rot so if you suspect that your home might be affected, contact Prokil without delay.
