The first and most important step in wet rot treatment is ensuring the source of moisture has been removed and that the surrounding area where wet rot growth has occurred is dried out. Only then can proper treatment eradicate the fungus.  

With a small wet rot outbreak, infected timber can be cut away and a new piece of treated timber joined to whatever remains. This type of wet rot treatment is often enhanced using a suitable fungicide treatment.

In more severe cases, where the timber affected by wet rot has lost most of its strength, it is often necessary to remove the timber in its entirety and replace it with new timber that is pre-treated against the potential germination of wet rot spores.

The worst case scenario is when wet rot occurs in structural timbers (such as roof trusses, floor joists). In these cases, extensive building work may have to be undertaken for a property to regain its structural integrity. 

In any of the above cases, the fully qualified and experienced experts at Wise Property Care are here to help.
