What is Wet Rot?
Wet Rot described many types of wood decay that can affect your home. It’s caused by a high level of structural dampness or a water leakage. Increased moisture in timber provides a perfect place for all sorts of fungi to grow. One example is the basement fungus Coniophora puteana.
It is very important to properly differentiate Wet Rot from it’s dangerous counterpart, Dry Rot. They may look similar, but the effects of Dry Rot can be much more widespread and dangerous.
That’s why it’s always prudent to request a Specialist Opinion on whether you are dealing with Dry or Wet Rot. It’s also important to know which fungus is causing the Wet Rot so that the appropriate treatment can be applied.
