If you live in or around the lovely area of East Sheen in SW London, you may already know of Tapco HomeDry or maybe you have seen one of our many vans in your area, because we have been trading continuously n your area since 1971 and are generally recognised as on of London and Surrey’s most established and reputable Dry Rot and Damp Proofing company.
If you live in East Sheen and have noticed any of the following strange things in your home it is possibly signs of the dreaded Dry Rot Fungus (Serpula lacrymans). Dry Rot can only thrive with damp, no damp, no dry rot. If you recognise any of the following you should call us immediately:
• A damp mushroom type smell when you first come into the house.
• A rust/red coloured dust on your furniture. These are millions of spore being spread from the dry rot ‘fruiting body’.
• Cracked and brittle joinery timbers that easily crumble in your hand.
• A white cotton wool like fungal growth, called mycelium.
• Discolouration to walls and ceilings with water spots.
• Unusually springy or warped floors.
The worrying thing is you might not initially notice any of the above signs of dry rot and damp, allowing it to go unnoticed and to spread rapidly throughout your home, causing severe structural damage and the need for thousands of pounds worth of repairs. Each dry rot spore is capable of causing a brand new dry rot outbreak elsewhere in your property.
