Common Signs Of Dry Rot
Dry rot, also known as wood rot, is a serious problem that can threaten the structural integrity of your home by eating away and deteriorating the wood. While discovering dry rot you may also notice the discoloration of wood surfaces, a dank mildew smell, or areas in your floor that “give” when you walk upon it are all common indications of dry rot in your home.
Dry rot occurs in areas that are subject to excessive moisture including, but not limited to:
- Areas of your kitchen and bathroom
- Deck floorboards, ledger, and posts
- Floor covering, subfloor, and joists
- Framing around windows and doors
- Inside posts, beams, joists, and sills
- Roof shingles, gutters, soffit, and fascia
- Walls, baseboards, stiles, and rails
How Dry Rot Occurs In Your Home
Dry rot is the end condition, in varying stages, of the destruction enacted upon healthy wood by a wood fungus that thrives on sources of wet, damp, and healthy wood. In the earliest stages, dry rot begins as tiny reddish spores that spread across wood surfaces. As it advances, it eats into the wood and robs it of its durability and vigor. In the final stages, dry rot reduces once healthy wood to a state in which it is cracked, crumbling, and disintegrating. Because the wood fungus that causes dry rot feeds on wet wood, it can take hold in virtually any part of your home that has excessive moisture along with wooden structures or surfaces.
Eradicating Dry Rot From Your Home
Once it has invaded the wood in your Renton home, the spread of dry rot is difficult to stop. Professional help is typically required because all of the wood fungi must be extracted, right down to the microscopic spores. If not entirely removed, the wood fungus will continue to grow and spread. After the fungus is eradicated, the affected wood must be removed and repaired. Depending on the stage of dry rot in your home, this may require some structural restoration work.
