About White Rot Fungi

White rot fungi attack the cellulose and the lignin both hard and soft woods, resulting in a lighter, whiter appearance. This type of rot will cause the wood to shrink and collapse as the fungus affects more and more of the wood area. Infested wood becomes less strong and spongier as the fungus increases. White rot fungi only appear when the wood is actually wet, meaning there is likely a leak or structural problem that is causing the fungus to spread.
