Why Dry Rot Can Be So Damaging To Your Home
Wood rot represents a significant threat to the structural integrity of your Redmond home because it is caused by a wood fungus that decays healthy wood through devouring the properties that make wood firm and durable. While there are various stages of dry rot, the final stage is one in which previously healthy wood has been dilapidated completely—so much so that it becomes cracked and crumbles easily when any weight or pressure is applied to it.
When dry rot has taken hold of the wood structures and surfaces in your home it seriously compromises the capacity for the wood to perform its intended function. Wood in such a condition of decay is not fit to fortify your home and must be repaired. Because dry rot is progressive, the longer it inhabits your home the worse the decay will get. To remove dry rot completely and ensure it does not reoccur, all of the microscopic spores from which it grows must be removed.
