Epsom is a market town situated in the borough of Epsom and Ewell in Surrey. It’s well known for its race course which in the summer holds one of the biggest horse races in the World, the annual Derby as well as the famous Epsom salts which derive from its mineral waters.
You might be used to placing a bet at the races but it’s definitely not a good idea to gamble on ignoring a damp or dry rot problem within your home. It could cost you thousands of pounds in repairs as dry rot moves just as fast as the Epsom horses thanks to its fast spreading spores that it releases into the air. Each spore can cause a brand new outbreak of wood decaying fungus.
At Tapco Homedry we’ve seen hundreds of cases of dry rot and damp as we are London, Surrey and the Home Counties long established dry rot and damp specialists. Located near Epsom in Thames Ditton, Surrey, we recently attended a property in Epsom with a dry rot problem. Our fully qualified Surveyor found a serious case of True Dry Rot Fungi (Serpula lacrymans) affecting the ground floor timbers. Once the home owner received our full report containing the extent and damage caused by the dry rot attack, our client immediately instructed us to send our skilled operatives to carry out specialist dry rot treatment to affected areas of the property.
Dry Rot is a malignant destroyer, caused by damp and moisture ingress, which can remove all the strength from buildings. It has been responsible for their complete collapse on occasions, when it has been permitted to go unchecked. With any fungal decay it is important to bear in mind that, like an iceberg, what a property owner has seen might only be the tip of the problem.
We cannot stress enough the importance of having any dry rot and damp problem inspected as soon as you suspect something wrong. For a full and thorough dry rot and damp survey of your property call Tapco HomeDry on 0800 195 9878.
