Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that invades and decays moist or damp wood in your home. It can pervade your home’s structure, places such as the inner walls, posts, beams, and joints, or flooring. Because it thrives in damp environments, it tends to proliferate in the bathroom and kitchen or other moist areas throughout your home. Beginning as tiny reddish spores, the fungus spreads throughout healthy wood and must be removed entirely to eradicate the problem.
The main complication with dry rot is that it compromises the structural integrity of the wood in your Mountlake Terrace home. In advanced stages, dry rot results in the dilapidation of wood structures and surfaces that necessitates repair. It causes wood to crack and crumble and fall apart easily with any kind of pressure. This, of course, makes your home unsafe. Wood that has been decayed by dry rot is simply in no shape to provide the function it was intended to provide.
