A lack of ventilation and high humidity (between 18 – 30%) create an ideal environment for mould to grow.

A damp property can be affected by dry rot, a damp problem, regardless of age or construction.

When the following conditions are present, dry rot can occur:

  • Dry rot spores
  • Ventilation problems
  • Timber
  • Moisture
  • Oxygen

Our homes are often filled with dry rot spores without causing any problems.

Nevertheless, spores can develop into fungal growth if they settle on a moist and food-rich surface (wood).

Once dry rot takes hold on your property, it will need to be treated or replaced. When dry rot is not treated effectively, it will spread. As a result, there is a great likelihood that your home will be severely damaged. To prevent your home from being damaged further by dry rot, you should seek professional assistance as soon as possible.
