Structural timbers in UK properties are particularly susceptible to fungal and insect attacks due to a combination of a damp and temperate climate in combination with the use of traditional building materials and methods used in construction. Damp and wet conditions combined with a lack of ventilation and where damp conditions are ongoing, provides the ideal environment for destructive rots and fungus to form and take hold, causing widespread damage and decay to the timbers within a property.
