How to treat wet rot

To determine the cause and extent of the rot problem we will send a qualified wet rot treatment specialist to the property to conduct a full wet rot survey. In order to ensure that all traces of wet rot are identified, our surveyor may have to lift some floorboards or remove skirting or panelling to arrive at the correct dianosis.

In adddition to this, our surveyor will also:

  • Ascertain if the problem is indeed wet rot
  • Identify any associated problems like dry rot, damp or woodworm
  • Create a woodworm treatment plan which our local technicians can get started on right away if you are happy for them to do so.
  • Provide you with a full report outlining findings in each specific area of your property

Should you choose to conduct the work with us then our specialist wood rot treament process will look like this.

Removing the source of moisture

If our Peter Cox surveyors detect wet rot, the first step in the treatment is to eliminate the unwanted sources of moisture and make sure the timber is dried out. As wet rot cannot grow without a source of water, it is essential to remove this. Common sources of moisture that lead to wet rot include  problems with roofing, gutters, pipes, leaking cellars or basements, and poor sub floor ventilation.

Timber repairs

The next step will be to identify the extent of any wet rot damage to the structural and decorative timber. Timbers damaged by wet rot will need to be removed and replaced by a Peter Cox timber repair specialist.

Fungicidal treatments to timbers

Any timber that is deemed safe enough to be retained will be treated with a fungicidal treatment to ensure no further growth of wet rot fungus.

Additional wet rot treatment recommendations

Throughout the wet rot treatment process, Peter Cox will also give you any advice on additional steps that may be required to ensure your property is left safe from future outbreaks of wet rot.

For example,  waterproofing services may be necessary if the wet rot has manifested in a basement or cellar underneath your property,  to make this space watertight.
