The Problem Of Dry Rot In Edmonds, Washington
Dry rot is a term that represents various states of decay in wood. It is caused by a fungus that inhabits and feeds on wood that is moist or damp. As a progressive condition, in its early stages, dry rot appears on wood surfaces as a large collection of spores that have a reddish tint. As it progresses into more advanced stages, the spores expand and create growths on wood that may look like cotton or cobwebs. In some instances, dry rot manifests as mushroom-like growths on wood. In either case, dry rot eventually depletes wood of its coherence, makes it crack, crumble and break apart easily.
