Dry Rot Pictures - worst case - fruiting bodies

Dry Rot can be very serious - always consult a Qualified Expert, or give us a call for free advice, or buy a Book:

Call our Qualified Timber Infestation Surveyors for free help - 01626 872886

The photographs below show EXTREME examples of Dry rot - the early symptoms are far less dramatic. So, it is important to take qualified advice immediately. Many fungal attacks are actually Wet Rots, but some Wet Rots are difficult to distinguish from Dry rot, so do call us or a qualified Timber Infestation Surveyor. We can supply a list of Qualified Property Care Association Members, or go direct to the PCA Website.

Dry Rot Fruiting Bodies

The rust red dust on the carpet is Dry Rot, in the form of

millions of Spores from this enormous Fruiting Body, or Sporophore. Superb!

This outbreak was caused by an external water leak - it developed whilst the Owner was away for two months.

Hidden voids under floors are perfect as a growth area for Dry Rot - dark and moist, with little air flow.

Note the rust red spores hanging in the cobwebs and the cream coloured edge to the spore body.
