Dry Rot

​​Dry Rot is the term given to brown rot decay caused by certain fungi that deteriorate timber in buildings and other wooden construction often without an apparent source of moisture. The decayed wood takes on a dark or browner crumbly appearance, with cuboidal-like cracking that becomes brittle and can eventually reduce the integrity of the timber. Red or Brown dust is often one of the first noticeable symptoms of Dry Rot and should be acted upon quickly if identified to prevent further damage occurring. An outbreak of dry rot within a building can be an extremely serious problem that is hard to eradicate, sometimes requiring drastic remedies to correct. Eventually the decay can cause instability and structural damage if untreated.

​Dry Rot (Serpula Lacrymans) is a destructive, invasive fungus that is created by circumstances normally unseen and can cause severe damage to buildings and contents alike.
