Wet Rot
Wet rot is more common than dry rot and causes serious damage. It thrives in wet conditions, but as it can only spread on wet wood it is easier to eradicate then dry rot which will spread regardless of the conditions, damp or dry.
There are a variety of Wet Rot Fungi. They feed off wood and require saturated conditions to thrive. The moisture content in affected wood will often be over 30%.
Wet Rot has a root system (mycelium) which spreads in a different way to Dry Rot. A wet rot outbreak tends to be far more localised than with Dry Rot.
The treatment of Wet Rot will depend upon the extent of the outbreak. All treatments will require the cure of the source of water. The subsequent removal of affected timbers are isolated from damp brickwork.
