Wood Fungus Treatment

Wood fungus treatment is the process of treating wood that has been infected by various types of fungi, which can cause the wood to deteriorate and weaken over time. Fungi can cause serious damage to wooden structures and furniture and can even pose a health risk to humans and animals. There are many different methods for treating wood fungus, including chemical treatments, physical removal of the affected wood, and moisture control to prevent further growth. It’s important to properly identify the type of fungus and choose the most effective treatment method to ensure the longevity and safety of the wood.

Tim-bor ® Treatment

Tim-bor ® can be applied as a solution, foam or dust for wood treatment against wood-destroying organisms, and even more as a solution or dust for general insect control. This is one of the best ways for a fungi treatment.

Tim-bor ®, if applied as a solution or foam to wood, will penetrate into the wood to various depths dependent upon the moisture in the wood and the wood species. The active ingredient does not break down, therefore as normal moisture changes occur in the wood, It is always available to be drawn deeper into the wood over time, providing long-lasting protection.

This product is an insecticide, fungicide and wood preservative for the protection and treatment of lumber against fungal decay and wood destroying insects (including termites, beetles, and carpenter ants). Even more, It gets its preservative power from the active ingredient DOT (disodium octaborate tetrahydrate).

What fungi do we treat at Universal?

1. White Rot- Attacks primarily hardwoods and causes a white or yellow discoloration by attacking the cellulose and lignin in the wood. Eventually, the wood will develop a spongy touch and stringy appearance.

2.Brown Rot- Attacks primarily softwoods and causes the wood to turn dark brown. It is often called “brown cubical rot” due to the way the wood can split across the grain, giving a checkerboard appearance or breaking off in cubes. Brown rot can weaken wood quickly, causing the wood to be very dry and powdery, hence the misleading nickname “dry rot.”
