Chemicals used to treat dry rot
What is the chemical that you use to treat dry rot?
- The micro emulsion formulation developed exclusively for Peter Cox to treat wood rotting fungi contains two active ingredients - Propiconazole and 3-Iodo-2-Propynl-Butyl Carbamate. It is supplied as a concentrate in water soluble sachets (to eliminate packaging waste) and diluted on site by adding to clean water.
It has been developed to be effective at the lowest possible concentration level with the safest active ingredients thereby ensuring low mammalian toxicity.
The fluid is approved for use as a remedial treatment fungicide by the Health and Safety Executive and treated areas can be re-occupied safely after just 1 hour.
My pantry floor rotted and when I took the floor up there was a six foot void with about six inch of water, I believe this is the water table, we have also noticed a musty smell at the bottom of my stairs, I think we could have the same problem.
Could you suggest a solution and do you think my insurance would cover this?
I have a 3 storey house built in 2000. My bathroom is on the 3rd floor and I noticed mushrooms growing out of the skirting alongside the toilet. We have lifted the lino, removed the skirting and the tiled frame enclosing the pipework.There was a lot more ground damp, black soot on the walls and more mushrooms. Much wetter below the bend on the overflow pipe which we have tightened. Do we need to do more?
I have discovered woodworm in some furniture in our home. Am I best to dispose of them or what is the treatment to cure it ?
