Primary Cause of Dry Rot

Primary Cause of Dry Rot

All types of properties can be affected by dry rot. The primary cause is excess humidity or moisture mixed with a lack of ventilation. This creates the perfect environment for fungal invasion, which escalates into dry rot. It can develop inside the gaps and voids in the walls, feeding off wood behind the plaster, or surface in other ways.

Dry rot spores may be found in practically every home to some degree, but they are mostly harmless if they do not come in contact with moisture. When they do, the spores will germinate and develop a fungus that becomes dry rot. This fungus will ultimately mature into a fruiting body, which releases additional spores & continues the dry rot lifecycle.

Dry rot may cause significant damage to the wood in any part of a house once it has begun to grow. Worse, the longer dry rot is left untreated, the more dangerous it becomes.
