Also, keep in mind that the longer you wait the more pervasive and damaging the dry rot will become to your home.

How Can You Tell if You Might Have Dry Rot in Your Hillsboro Home?

Because the fungus that causes dry rot eats away at the structural integrity of the wood in your home, you can typically tell if you have dry rot based on signs that indicate weakened or deteriorating wood. For instance, floors that have spots that ‘give’ or squeak when you walk on them may indicate that the wood beneath your floor is compromised. Any wood that appears darker than usual, discolored, seems to be softer or looser than normal, or looks as if it is shrinking or cracking may be affected by dry rot. A musty mildew smell is another good sign, and if any wood surface in your home has a growth on it that looks like mushrooms, cobwebs or cotton, you are likely dealing with an advanced stage of dry rot.

Areas of your home that are prone to large amounts of moisture, such as bathroom and kitchen counter tops, walls and floors are a favorite spot for the dry rot fungus to feed. Dry rot may also grow on exterior surfaces of your home, such as your deck, roof, area around gutters and the framing and sills around windows and doors.
