Wet Rot

Wet rot
occurs when wood gets wet and dries out again and again. Just like leaving any piece of untreated wood outside, it will become soft and decompose.

How to deal with wet rot.

1. Establish the source of the moisture and eliminate it.
2. Establish the full extent of the decay.
3. Cut out all the weakened decayed timber and treat the remaining sections with wood preservative.
4. Replace with new wood that has either been pre-treated or treated on site.
5. Always paint or protect bare wood as soon as possible.
6. Keep an eye out for the early signs of decay.
7. Clean out air bricks serving timber ground floors regularly.

About Us   Did You Know?   Contact Us Contact Us
We are experts in timber treatment, condensation cures, damp proofing and cellar conversions. We work in London and throughout the Home Counties area, mainly in Essex and Hertfordshire. We are a well-established family firm, and have built our business on our good reputation. Our work is carried out by our own staff and is usually backed by a long-term insurance-backed guarantee.   There are two main types of fungi which cause decay in timbers, Dry Rot and Wet Rot. Both require timber to become wet and to remain wet for some time. Therefore keeping the property dry is the first line of defence against fungal attack.   RegencyHDT
