Wood Rot

Dry rot, also called ‘wood rot,’ is a condition of decay and deterioration in healthy wood caused by an aggressive and destructive wood fungus. The wood fungus that results in dry rot feeds on wood that is wet or moist, and turns healthy and strong wood into a cracking and crumbling state that is no longer functional for use in your home. The fungus can make wood in your home look as if mushrooms or cobwebs are growing on it. It is a sinister looking deterioration of the originally healthy wood in your home into a messy, smelly, and unsavory condition.

Removing dry rot from your home and restoring the wood structures it has invaded to a healthy condition is a vital process to ‘heal’ your home – otherwise, the dry rot fungus keeps feeding and spreading throughout the wood. It is also critical to hire a professional to extract the dry rot from your home because you need to get all of it, right down to the microscopic pores, to kill it off.
