Wet & Dry Rot

What Are Wet & Dry Rot

One of the most serious problems that can occur in the structure of any property is dry rot. It is caused by the fungi Serpula Lacrymans, which can penetrate anything from brickwork to masonry. It can often pass between plaster and brickwork, making it both difficult to see and eradicate.

Out of the many types of wet rot that can damage your property, the most common ones are caused by the fungi Coniophora Puteana and Fibroporia Vaillantii. Wet rot might not seem as serious as dry rot, but it can cause damage to damp timbers and provide ideal conditions for insect infestations.

You can trust us to eliminate rot and the causes which provide the conditions for the rot to proliferate in your property.
