Dry rot spores are present in every home, but remain harmless unless they come into contact with water such as from a leaking roof, damaged down pipes or gutters, or leaking pipes.
When that happens, the spores germinate, creating a fluffly cotton wool-like fungus which can cause serious damage to timber structures. If left untreated, this can undermine the stability of floors and roofs in particular.
That’s why it’s important to seek a professional survey to identify the extent of any dry rot problem, allowing it to be treated.
