How Dry Rot Invades & Corrodes Your Home
Dry rot is a condition of decay that advances through various sequential stages. It begins as a mass of reddish spores that spreads across healthy wood but soon begins to devour the wood, sometimes resulting in strange-looking growths such as cotton, cobwebs, or mushrooms. If left untreated, the wood fungus that causes dry rot completely invades the wood and devours the properties that make it firm and strong. Ultimately, wood rot represents a state of total dilapidation in which the previously healthy wood in your Lake Stevens home crumbles and falls apart easily under pressure.
