Hi All !
I have an 80 year old house. I have recently discovered that there is a
considerable amount of fungi growth on the wooden roof rafters. It
looks like a fine cottonwool-like growth hanging in threads off the
rafters. Although the wood seems ok structurally, I have a suspicion
that it is creating a health problem for us living in the house. Does
anyone know how I can treat the wood to get rid of this problem ??
you can kill it with beach water.
you must address why theres excess mpisture allowingit to grow.
add eave vents, ridge vent, perhaps attic fan, soffit and fascia vents
vapor barriers are needed too
have any fans venting into attic? some mistakendly do that with bath
Kill it with bleach, let it dry, solve the moisture problem,
and treat it with Bora-care or something similar. The
problem with just drying it and leaving it is that the fungi
will attract wood-eating insects, even if it's dormant.
