Signs of Dry Rot Signs of Dry Rot
A silky grey to mushroom coloured skin frequently tinged with patches of lilac and yellow which often develop under less humid conditions. You can peel this 'skin' like a mushroom.
White, fluffy 'cotton wool' mycelium develops under humid conditions. 'Teardrops' may develop on the growth.
Strands develop in the mycelium; these are brittle when dry and crack when bent.
Fruiting bodies are a soft, fleshy pancake or bracket with an orange-ochre surface. The surface has wide pores.
Rust red coloured spore dust frequently is seen around fruiting bodies.
Active decay produces a musty, damp odour.
Timber can become damp for a number of reasons. Among the most common causes are leaking washing machines, shower trays, baths, condensation etc. The dampness can also come from outside the building, for example, leaking roofs, rising dampness, or dampness penetrating through walls. Whatever the source of the dampness, if it is rectified and the timber is allowed to properly dry out, the dry rot will eventually be controlled.
