What Causes Rot?

The fungal spores. Although they are not always active we have to know that rot damage does not occur within one day.


Fungi attacks dry rot, which is a common type of wood rot. The fungi destroy the parts of the wood that keeps the area strong and firm. 

Fungal spores need adequate amounts of water and high relative humidity, potentially in bathrooms for example. The stage is set for rot when the content is filled with moisture and joined with high relative humidity.
