It is ironic that a condition is known as ‘dry rot’ is caused by excessive moisture penetrating the structure of your home. Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that eats away at healthy wood and destroys its coherence so that the wood deteriorates, breaks apart, and crumbles.

How To Detect The Presence Of Dry Rot In Your Home
Because dry rot is caused by excessive moisture, you will most often find it in places that are most susceptible to becoming wet, either through an interface with the outside of the home or interior areas that are subject to moisture. Inside the Tigard house dry rot may be difficult to detect, here are some signs you may look for if you suspect its presence in your home:
- Floors or wood surfaces have discoloration.
- A damp and musty odor is a good indication of dry rot fungus.
- Wood surfaces or structure are softer than normal or seem to be loose.
- Any area of wood that appears dark or looks as if it is shrinking or is cracked.
- A growth like cobwebs, cotton, or mushrooms appears on wood surfaces.
- Your floor has areas that “give” or squeak when you walk on it.
If you notice any of these symptoms, you likely have dry rot in your Tigard home. Because dry rot is so pervasive and tricky to deal with, it is highly recommended to have a professional address it. If you don’t locate and remove all of the dry rot fungi it will continue to eat away at the structure of your home.
