What Exactly Is Dry Rot?
Dry rot is the result, in varying stages, of the effect of the wood fungus that causes it. The final condition of dry rot is just as it sounds, a state in which previously healthy wood is thoroughly decayed. Such wood cracks, crumbles and falls apart easily when pressure is applied to it. Therefore, wood structures and surfaces in your home that have dry rot can jeopardize the integrity of your home and the safety of you and your family.
Fortunately for Everett homeowners, the progression of dry rot takes a number of years, and if caught in earlier stages the damage it does to your home is minimal and the dry rot fungus can be eradicated more quickly. To maintain the health and safety of your home, it’s important to spot the signs of dry rot and consult with a professional Everett dry rot repair and removal company such as SFW Construction LLC.
How Dry Rot Can Invade and Dilapidate Your Home
The wood fungus that promotes dry rot feeds on wet or damp wood, which is not hard to find in Everett, Washington! Any place in your home that is prone to excessive moisture, such as the bathroom or kitchen—even exterior areas such as the wood around gutters or roofing under loose shingles—is a prime location for the wood fungus that causes dry rot. Once the wood rot has invaded your Everett home, the fungus spreads unabated, pervading and decaying healthy wood. At this point, the fungus must be removed or it will dilapidate your home.
Indications of Dry Rot
Dry rot can be detected through various signs and symptoms. Major changes in the appearance, odor and functionality of any wood structure or surface in your home are good indications there may be a problem.
Here is a list of common signs of dry rot:
- Wood surfaces or structures that are discolored, warped, or have strange growths on them that look like cotton, cobwebs or mushrooms.
- Wood that is cracked, crumbling or falling apart.
- Areas of flooring which become concave and “give” when walked upon.
- Rusty, reddish spores on wood surfaces.
- An odor that is earthy or musty in indoor locations where there is wood.
- Wood surfaces or structures that have shrunk, become loose or no longer function properly.
