The Company to Call for Dry Rot Treatment in Dorset 

Dry rot, along with wet rot, is term often used to refer to fungal decay, which is a common issue that affects tens of thousands of properties throughout the UK. In fact, around 35% of surveys reveal the presence of fungal decay, and where there is fungal decay, damp is likely to be found. If you require a dry rot treatment, Dorset customers should waste no time calling Insite (Southern) Ltd. 

What is Dry Rot? 

Dry rot occurs in any timbers where there is a moisture content of 20% or higher and spreads at an average rate of 3.5 metres per annum. Spores of the fungus are spread by air currents, animals, and people where they come to rest, and before penetrating into wood using threads (Hyphae). Without our Dorset dry rot treatment, dry rot extracts nutrients while breaking down timers with enzymes. 

Signs of dry rot infestation include: 

  • Sheets of Fungus Known as Mycelium (vary in colour from dirty grey to pure white) 
  • Sporophores (fruiting bodies which look like large mushrooms) 
  • Red Rust-Coloured Spore Dust 
  • Timbers Which are Brittle to the Touch and Have Deep Cracks 
  • Damp or Musty Smells 

Dry rot, once it takes hold, will spread throughout a property, passing through even brick and plaster unless stopped by a dry rot treatment. Dorset customers, if left unchecked, severe structural damage can be caused, and the property itself could even end up condemned, certifying it as uninhabitable.

How Can Our Dorset Dry Rot Treatment Team Help? 

The first step towards a dry rot treatment in Dorset is to give Insite (Southern) Ltd a call to arrange a visit from one of our highly trained surveyors. Dry rot can often be difficult to track down, but our surveyors know how to and can also identify the full extent of the infestation. While wet rot is easier to contain, dry rot spreads quickly, so it’s important that every sign of it be tracked down quickly. 

We perform a survey to locate the infestation and also identify the source. Once we know of the correct course of action, we’ll provide you with a FREE, no-obligation quote for our dry rot treatment. Dorset customers, if you choose to proceed, we’ll set about removing all affected timber and plaster along with any surrounding timber and plaster to a distance of at least one metre. 

We then apply a powerful chemical fungicide to the exposed brickwork and masonry before installing pre-treated timber that’ll resist dry rot infestation. We’ll also seek to remedy whatever issue resulted in the dry rot, to begin with. This is often a failure of the damp proofing or, in the case of listed and heritage buildings, a lack thereof. We’ll then tidy away any mess, leaving your property as we found it. 

Should you wish to learn more about our dry rot treatment, Dorset customers should waste no time calling Insite (Southern) Ltd today.
