Dry rot is the common name given to a particular species of wood rotting fungi called ‘Serpula Lacrymans.

Dry rot can be very dangerous if left undetected and untreated causing huge structural damage. The first thing needed if you suspect a possible dry rot outbreak is an assessment by someone trained to detect these issues (us!) This may require invasive methods for example; Lifting floorboards, removing skirting boards etc. In some cases spore dust (fine reddish dust) can be visible in your home from where the fungi are trying to reproduce, this is a tell-tale sign. You will need to act quickly and decisively to remove and prevent the rot from growing again which can be done in a variety of ways;

  • Increased ventilation

  • Removal of moisture source

  • Removal or timbers

  • Last resort – a fungicidal treatment
