How Wood Dry Rot Can Invade And Decay Your Home
Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that is prevalent in Puyallup as it feeds on wet, damp or moist sources of wood that are abundant in the rainy Northwest climate. The wood fungus can spawn on any wood in your home that is exposed regularly to moisture or humidity, as is common in the kitchen and bathroom as well as around windows and doors. Beginning as a sheen of tiny reddish spores, the wood fungus proceeds to permeate and decay the wood in your home. In fact, it will not usually stop until completely eradicated.
In advanced stages, the wood fungus causes the state known as dry rot, a condition in which the wood structures and surfaces of your home are decayed and dilapidated. Such wood is not fit to provide stability for your home and must be repaired.
