Wet Rot Treatment
Where wet rot is discovered, the badly decayed wood which is beyond repair should be removed and disposed of as a first action, no matter where the rot is found. This is the first step in wet rot treatment.
We then use the ALLDAMP Timber Treatment Solution to reduce and stop the spread of the further rot due to the already affected timber. Any wood which is not removed needs to be treated with a suitable timber preservative and any timber used to replace the old should be pre-treated against fungal decay. This makes sure that the fungus does not return.
The above, however, does assume that the cause of the wet rot – the damp – has been solved. For more information about damp treatment, visit our damp proofing page.
