Wet Rot Treatment

Is your home suffering from wet rot? With many years worth of experience in the removal and treatment of wet rot; you can be sure your property will be in safe hands.


Professional Inspection and Treatment

Before any treatment, one of our qualified surveyors will conduct a thorough property inspection (wet rot survey) to assess the extent of the rot problem and decide whether there is a need for treatment. At this point some plaster, skirting or Paneling may need to be removed in order to determine the full extent of wet rot and its causes. Our surveyor will also:

  • Check for sources of damp that led to the rot

  • Look for associated problems such as dry rot, damp or insect infestations

  • Identify other areas of your property that could be at risk

  • Provide the most cost effective solution to your problem

  • Provide you with a full report outlining findings in each specific area of your property

Details of our Wet Rot Treatment service

After a wet rot treatment survey has been completed, a solution has been agreed upon and our surveyor has arranged a suitable date with you; our technicians will come and rectify your wet rot problem. Trained technicians will go through the following steps to treat your home for wet rot:


  1. Stopping the Source of Moisture – In order to locate and treat the source of moisture, our trained technicians will remove any infected wood and wall plaster. The source of moisture is then repaired and dried before wet rot treatment can be applied; this will prevent wet rot spores from germination in the future.

  2. Damaged Area Removal – To prevent the spread of your current rot fungus problem; skirtings, panelling, ceilings and plaster that have been damaged or started to decay are removed.

  3. Treating Dry Rot – A protective chemical barrier in the form of fungicidal paste is applied if structural timbers and brickwork are affected by the wet rot fungus. Once applied, the fungicidal paste will not only prevent wet rot from re-establishing itself but prevent attacks from woodworm for many years to come.

  4. Timber Replacement – Once our property technician is certain that the wet rot treatment has fully eradicated rot from your home he will begin replacing removed timber with preservative-treated timbers.
