Dry Rot (Serpula Lactymons)

Dry Rot typically occurs when wood is on or in contact with wet brick work. It is rarely found on exposed timbers where fluctuating conditions are likely (eg, well ventilated sub-floors and roofing timbers). Strands can transport moisture from damp areas, allowing spread of fungus to uncontaminated timbers in unventilated conditions. An indication of an outbreak of Dry Rot is a fruit-body.

Woodworm Example


The most commonly found wood boring insect in the UK is the ‘Common Furniture Beetle – Anobuim Punctatum). The common furniture beetle can be found in older furniture and all constructional timbers – particularly around loft access, as well as timbers in contact with solid walls, under stairs, cupboards and other areas affected by damp.
