Fungal Decay in Buildings – Guidance Document

Our Fungal Decay in Buildings Guidance Document focuses on the effects that dry rot and wet rot can have on a building. The presence of fungal decay in buildings affects timber of all ages and when decay is discovered, the fungus responsible should be identified and remedial action taken without delay.

This guidance document outlines both dry and wet rot in some detail, from common causes of dampness to the treatment and prevention of fungal decay in buildings.

Finding the source of dampness and eliminating the ingress of moisture, whilst promoting drying, is always necessary.
