Salisbury wet rot issues
Wet rot is caused by various types of fungi attaching itself to timber. The most universal fungi type to produce wet rot is Coniophora Putena, which is more commonly known as cellar fungus. The fungus occurs when water infiltrates your property structure; which can be a result of flooding, damaged windows, or faulty plumbing, to name just a few examples.
When the timber is allowed to have a build-up of moisture, the integral structure of your property is compromised, and there is a worrying possibility that your home could collapse. Wet rot can destroy a Salisbury property in as little as 60 days, so what are you waiting for; arrange your survey with Prokil today.
