How to treat fibrous rot?
If they are wood-eating fungi that do not develop syrrotes (fibrous rot but also rot cubic caused by lenzites or others), only the wood will have to be treaty by logging, spraying or injection depending on the section of the pieces of wood to be treat.
The wood-eating fungi are colonizers that must be eliminated as far upstream as possible by tracking down sources of moisture. Call on a professional like PAMI, an expert in this type of treatment fungicide against dry rot and others wood-eating fungi.
why things rot ? Mold can grow on all foods including water, coffee, spices, cocoa. They like heat and humidity. Cold, vacuum (decrease in oxygen content), drought slow down the development of moulds.
It is caused by fungi that specialize in breaking down cellulose and hemicellulose. It destroys the structure of the wood. At an advanced stage of decay, the wood loses much of its raw density and its tensile and flexural strength.
Wood is made up of more than 90% cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. Depending on which substance degrades first, three forms of wood rot can be distinguished: brown rot, white rot and soft rot.
This phenomenon causes dimensional changes called shrinkage and swelling. Additionally, moisture can also be responsible for rotting wood when other surrounding conditions are present.
The surface of the contaminated wood is viscous and dark in color (grayish) when wet. The wood appears to be decayed and soft; you can easily push it in with your fingernail. When dried out, the surface of the wood breaks into small cubes, similar to cubic decay due to brown rot.
