Dry Rot Is Found On The Interior And Exterior Of A Home
Thriving on the moisture in wood, dry rot can occur in any wood that is exposed to a damp, wet or rainy condition, making the interior and exterior of your home a possibility. Common exterior locations are the frame and ledges around windows and doors, the wood around gutters, and the roof beneath loose shingles. Common interior locations highlight the floors, countertops, and walls in the bathroom and kitchen, but also include the attic, crawlspaces, cellar and floors throughout the home.
Why Dry Rot Is So Threatening To Your Home
Dry rot is a condition of decay in previously healthy wood that has been invaded by the wood fungus that promotes dry rot. Like most fungi, this wood fungus thrives on wood that is wet or moist—which is why it is so prevalent throughout the Northwest. Once dry rot has inhabited wood surfaces or structures in your home, it consumes the aspect of wood that makes it strong and firm—the result is deteriorated wood that cracks, crumbles, and falls apart. Wood in such a state of dilapidation cannot function to keep your home safe, and therefore it’s so important to address dry rot.
Signs & Symptoms Of Dry Rot
Any significant or unusual change in the condition of the wood structure or surfaces in your home may indicate dry rot, especially changes in appearance, functionality and odor. At advanced stages dry rot is easier to detect, but in earlier phases as well as when it is in out-of-view areas, it is harder to identify.
The following is a general list of dry rot signs & symptoms:
- Wood surfaces or structures looks as if they are shrinking or cracked.
- Floor has soft spots that become concave or squeak when walked on.
- Wood surfaces or structure are softer than normal or seem to be loose.
- Floors or wood surfaces are darker than usual or discolored.
- Cobweb, cotton or mushroom-like growths appear on wood surfaces.
- There is a musty, mildew odor around areas that have wood.
