Put simply, wet rot is timber that is decaying naturally in the presence of high moisture levels.
Wet rot is, therefore, a general term used to describe a variety of fungal species responsible for wood rot, the most common being ‘Cellar Fungus’ (Coniophora Puteana).
Any timber exposed to excess moisture can provide the ideal breeding ground for wet rot spores, meaning wet rot can occur for a number of reasons. It could be that you have a leaky roof, burst pipes, a washing machine that has not been connected up correctly, a leaking bath... The possibilities are endless. Whatever the reason, if timber has been exposed to damp for a sustainable period of time, the outcome is generally a form of wet rot.
Wet rot can affect almost any type of timber throughout the home so it can often be difficult to identify if you are not an expert. It is also completely different to the more serious timber condition dry rot, so it is important that the two are never confused.
