How to identify wet rot
Wet rot can be identified with many tell-tale signs one of which is water coming out of the woodwork with a slight prod of the finger. Another sign of wet rot is movement of floorboards which could show that wet rot is evident in your property.
It is also critical to assess the timber structure within your property as wet rot isn’t always visible from the outside. Wet rot is easily discovered on unpainted and untreated timbers; if your timbers have been painted and have cracks this is a sign of wet rot.
