Common Signs Of Dry Rot

Dry rot, a.k.a. wood rot, is fungus that causes wood decay. In an enabling environment (warm and humid), it can mushroom up and become a serious threat to the structural integrity of your home or commercial property. That’s why it’s extremely important to book a professional dry rot inspection once you’ve noticed any of these signs:

  • Damaged wood – timber went soft and squishy, or some areas on your floor notably give in when you step on them;
  • Surface discoloration – there are spots are darker or lighter than the surrounding area;
  • Distinctive odor – there is a persistent damp mushroomy smell, especially in poorly ventilated premises;
  • Red or orange dust – this isn’t really a dust but a concentration of fungal spores;
  • Grey strands – unlike cobwebs, these fungal threads are not sticky and can only be found on wooden surfaces.
