Dry Rot Treatment
The True Dry Rot Fungus (Serpula lacrymans) is a brown rot that gets its common name from the condition it leaves the wood in after it has consumed all the cellulose. The wood is light, brittle and easily crumbles while showing the characteristic cuboidal cracking.
It is the only brown rot with the ability to extend out from the initial point of germination. Using fine hyphae, mycelium and risomorphs it is able to travel through masonry and behind plaster. Therefore, expert identification and eradication is essential.
