Windsor might be home to the magnificent 900 year old Windsor Castle but it can also be home to the insidious Dry Rot Fungus (Serpula lacrymans). In fact Dry Rot it is such a big problem that the National Trust has recruited two sniffer dogs to seek out problems in historic buildings, to catch any attack at an early stage. The dogs were used inside Windsor Castle following a devastating fire in November 1992 when Thousands of gallons of water were used to extinguish it.
Dry Rot doesn’t just affect stately homes and castles, it can affect any property in Windsor and cause significant structural damage if not treated quickly and thoroughly. However you don’t need to go to the extent of getting Labradors, Sam and Wilson, into your home to sniff out this fungus because here at Tapco we have qualified and experienced surveyors to do it.
