Dry Rot eradication in Hampstead

Kenwood have recently undertaken a dry rot eradication project in the Hampstead area of London. This property was an upper flat or the third floor suffering from a Dry rot (Serpula lacrymans).

First referred to by Franz Xavier von Wulfen in the 1780’s under a slightly different name, it is derived from the Latin words ‘Serpula’ meaning ‘creeping’ and ‘lacrymans’ meaning ‘making tears’.
