Due to its severity Dry Rot (Serpula lacrymans) infestations require immediate attention. Dry Rot has a unique ability to travel outside of the damp area spreading the fungal decay to other parts of the building. Fungal decay always arises because the wood has become wet, once established the fungal strands and mycelium can grow within other substrates such as brick and plaster in search of new timber which can lead to severe structural damage.
Dry Rot Treatment
Quick, accurate, professional diagnosis and dry rot treatment is the best way to minimise costly repairs. Typically, we remove all wood and plaster in the vicinity of the outbreak and then sterilise thoroughly with a concentrated fungicidal solution.
