Signs of Wood Rot in Commercial Properties
Wood rot is the decay and rotting of wooden material. It is often caused by a combination of fungal growth and moisture. As the microscopic fungal organisms grow, they destroy the wood that they are living on. If wood rot is left untreated for a long period, it can spread from a small area to a structure-wide issue. But how will you know if there is wood rot in your commercial property? To give you ideas, here are some of the signs of wood rot:
Visible Wood Damage
The clearest sign of wood rot is visible wood damage. These can appear in various ways, such as warping, cracking, splintering, discoloration, and splitting of wood. As the rot progresses, wood may become soft and dark in color. Over time, wooden material can lose its ability to bear weight and hold together as the cellulose in the wood is damaged. When the wood starts to crack and crumble, it should be replaced.
Exterior Building Damage
If the wooden exterior of your building has cracks, holes, or missing pieces, it is a cause for concern. When there is damage to siding, window frames, door frames, and roofing, it might be caused by water infiltration. This may lead to water damage and also create an entry point and breeding ground for wood rot fungus.
You also have to note that wood rot, mold, and water damage all give off a musty odor. All of these contaminants break down wood and produce an earthy, moldy smell. If the area is poorly ventilated, the smell of decay is more noticeable.
Visible Fungal Growths
When you see white, yellow, purple, and gray patches on wood, these are all signs of fungal growth. They can be powdery or cottony in texture. It is important to treat these patches immediately, even if they are not wood rot. Treating mold and mildew spots fast is essential to prevent further growth.
One of the major ingredients for wood rot is water. Therefore, any signs of excess moisture can be a cause for concern. Look out for peeling and bubbling paint, leaky pipes, and condensation on windows. All of these are sources of moisture that contribute to wood rot.
