How Dry Rot Can Decay Your Home
Caused by a wood fungus that feeds on moist or damp wood, dry rot can take hold in the healthy wood of your home. Once it does, it begins a long slow process of decay that ends in complete dilapidation of wood surfaces and structures. Dry rot is actually the term for the damage caused by the wood fungus which corrodes healthy wood by devouring the properties that make wood strong and firm and durable. In the end, once the fungus has completely pervaded the wood, what remains is wood that cracks, crumbles and falls apart easily.
What You Can Do to Stop The Spread Of Dry Rot In Your Home
In order to completely resolve the problem of dry rot, the wood fungus that causes it must be eradicated entirely from the wood structures and surfaces of your Snoqualmie home. To do this requires a fairly advanced dry rot removal strategy. If all the microscopic spores that generate the fungus are not removed, it will likely continue and create new areas of wood rot in your Snoqualmie home.
