Dry Rot Removal Service in Greater Cincinnati

Dry Rot Removal Service in Greater Cincinnati

If your property’s wooden surfaces look old and weak, it’s possible that they are infested with dry rot. Dry rot is the result of a fungus that slowly breaks down wood fibers, giving the wood a brittle and dry appearance. There are two types of dry rot that can affect your wooden structures: white rot and brown rot. White rot targets hardwood and has a spongy texture and stringy appearance. Brown rot attacks softwood, has a checkerboard appearance, and causes the wood to turn dark brown.

Dry rot is a serious problem. If the wooden beams or walls in your foundation and basement are completely decayed, they lose their strength and stiffness – causing them to break and collapse. To get rid of the rot, you need to call the experts. If you’re looking for professional dry rot removal in Greater Cincinnati, contact Healthy Basement Concepts immediately.

Removing Dry Rot the Professional Way

Our professionals at Healthy Basement Concepts have the necessary equipment to remove and treat dry rot in your property. We also know how to spot dry rot when we see it. Dry rot is commonly mistaken for termite or carpenter ant damage; once you use the wrong removal method to treat dry rot, you risk damaging the wooden surface even further. At Healthy Basement Concepts, we are equipped to correctly and efficiently remove dry rot from your property. If you want us to deal with your dry rot problem, give us a call at 513-234-4212.

Tips in Preventing Dry Rot

You can prevent dry rot from occurring in your home if you maintain a moisture-free environment. Like mold, the fungus that attacks your wooden structures grows in damp and humid areas. To reduce moisture, you can apply the following tips:

  • Insulate or Encapsulate Your Basement and Crawl Space
  • Repair Water Leaks
  • Install a Dehumidifier and Sump Pump in the Basement
