Wet rot is triggered by an accumulation of moisture within the property, for instance, damp entering the building via the wall adjacent to the affected timber. This will result in the timber becoming water-logged causing it to feel spongy to touch. The damp treatment for wet rot involves us removing and replacing the rotten timbers – if the area is small enough, we can replace the affected part leaving the rest intact.
In the case of dry rot, this can be typically characterised by the presence of a distinctive looking fungus which can easily pass through bricks, mortar and plaster. This means that if left untreated, dry rot can spread to unaffected rooms and even adjoining buildings. At Tudor Remedial, our Bournemouth team will provide you with professional damp rot treatment that will rid you of the burden of dry rot entirely.
We will apply a special micro emulsion treatment directly to the affected timbers. These will penetrate deep into the wood ensuring that all traces of your dry rot are completely eliminated. Best of all, our damp rot treatment will also protect your Bournemouth masonry to ensure maximum protection.
