If you see any signs of wood rot in the corners of your house, it is important to take action immediately. Before you do any painting in a home, rotten wood repair must take place or be replaced. When wood becomes wet, it makes an ideal habitat for fungi to breed. Any wood that is exposed to moisture, even if just a tiny bit, can allow moisture to enter. As soon as moisture penetrates the wood, fungus can begin feeding, causing rotting of the wood.
As time goes on, wood that has rotted will become more difficult and more expensive to repair. The fungus digests the cellulose that makes up the wood as it germinates and spreads the strands of its root system. When the wood has been exhausted as a source of food, the fungus will begin to spread to any surrounding wood in its search for food. That is just how it starts. Wood rot can cause your entire home to be put at risk, as the wood becomes more brittle and breaks down. Additionally, harmful insects including weevils, ants, beetles, and termites all love rotten wood. This is because the cavities that develop in the wood give them an ideal habitat to establish a nest and start breeding.
There are also risks to your health and safety. Condensation and moisture in rotting wood can lead to the growth of mold. Some varieties of mold trigger allergic reactions, or worse, sickness. In addition, paint often begins to chip and flake off of wood that is rotted.
