Dry Rot

This is a serious condition that causes the decay and degradation of any timber or cellulose-based product it comes into contact with. It can often result in structural integrity problems, which is why it’s important to have it handled quickly and efficiently.

Typically, dry rot leads to the fungal decay of any affected timbers after prolonged contact with a source of damp. This is especially true in poorly ventilated areas, with the source of damp being anything from leaks, defective gutters, rising damp, or elevated ground levels.

    How We Can Help With Dry Rot

    As your Bournemouth timber treatment specialists, we will be able to correctly identify the cause of your dry rot. We will assess the severity and how quickly it is spreading in order to advise you on the best treatment for the situation. In certain areas, by controlling the moisture source and letting the structure dry out, we will be able to prevent dry rot spores germinating.

    However, some areas may also need to be treated with a masonry biocide and fungicide paste in order to prevent further outbreaks. Having treated the timber, we remove any infected material before replacing or repairing the timbers.

    As a preventative method, we then improve the ventilation within a property. It may be necessary to install a mechanical ventilation solution to remove moisture-laden air from the property. Finally, as your timber treatment specialists, Bournemouth residents will be advised on any steps to prevent this issue reoccurring at a later date.

    Wet Rot

    This is a severe form of timber decay cause by fungal growth, and it has the potential to impact the structural integrity of your property. In homes that are affected by high moisture levels, wet rot can quickly establish.

    It could indicate an underlying problem such as a burst pipe or sub-standard insulation, so it’s important to reach out to timber treatment specialists in Bournemouth. While wet rot doesn’t spread to unaffected areas and is therefore less destructive than dry rot, it can still cause problems if left unchecked.

    Wet rot can be divided into two types; brown and white and, due to the range of species, it can often be difficult to identify. The correct identification is as important as the treatment, so you should look out for damp feeling timber, darkened timber, fungal growth, weakened floorboards, and more.
