WET ROT & DRY ROT
For wet rot and dry rot solutions across Surrey
Despite their names, wet rot and dry rot are fungal infestations. They are caused by two specific species of fungus that grow and propagate in household conditions. For wet rot, this is the fungus coniophora puteana – better known as the cellar fungus. The fungus responsible for dry rot is called serpula lacrymans.
As the name suggests, wet rot flourishes in wet environments. This includes where there has been a water leak, as well as damp walls, shower trays and baths, blocked gutters, and more. Dry rot occurs in damp conditions with sufficient airflow to disperse its spores. This normally means places that suffer periodic damp and then dry out again.
