Signs of dry rot and wet rot
There are two types of rot that can impact timber. This is dry rot and wet rot. Dry rot can cause issues for any sort of property. This is a wood-destroying fungus, which grows from moisture that is in the wood. There needs to be excessive water for dry rot to begin germinating. There are a number of different signs of dry rot. This includes deep cracks that appear within the wood, white fungal growth with lilac and yellow tinges, and a distinct mushroom smell. It is also vital to recognise that both hardwood and softwood timbers can be damaged.
Now, let’s take a look at wet rot. This is a type of fungus that impacts timber that is very damp. It can ultimately cause the timber to decay. There are a number of different reasons why this can occur, including a burst pipe, plumbing that has been fitted incorrectly, and a leak from within the roof. There are a number of different indications that you could have a problem with wet rot in your home. This includes a damp, musty smell. You may also notice visible fungal growth in some occasions. Aside from this, other indications of a problem with wet rot include loss of strength to the wood, as well as cracking, softness, discolouration, and distortion.
