Some of the dry rot outbreaks were caused by leaks but mainly because of poor sub floor ventilation.
Dry rot treatment isn’t difficult but I would always advise that a member of the Property Care Association carries out the dry rot treatment as they will be trained professionals. The cause is the most important thing to find and rectify and obviously dry down the area.
