Dry rot is unfortunately one of the most severe damp timber problems as it can affect almost any timber within a property and rapidly spread throughout a building due to its aggressive fungal-like spores. It can grow over or through porous masonry as it only requires a simple nutritional source available in wood to spread.
Dry rot is a fungal-related damp problem that is often referred to by its technical name ‘serpus lacrymans’ – a fungus that eats into timber and destroys the elements in wood that give it its rigidity and strength. Ironically this type of fungus thrives in hot, humid environments where moisture can build up over time and left unchecked, it can threaten the structural integrity of a building making it unsafe for use.
