How to get rid of mold on the walls in a wooden house
Often owners of timber or frame houses face such a painful problem as wood fungi. They multiply rapidly and render the wood structure unusable. How to get rid of this problem?
Causes of the appearance of wood fungus
Why does this problem appear when appropriate conditions are created. This may be due to the fact that the house has a poorly made air ventilation system. For this reason, increased humidity accumulates in the room, and as you know, wood has a porous structure and the ability to absorb moisture. Gradually, the wooden walls become wet, and at positive air temperature, a favorable environment is created for the propagation of fungal spores.
What are wood fungi
Spores of house fungus multiply rapidly. Under favorable conditions, they can hit the wood of the walls in depth up to several centimeters. This fungus destroys the structure of wood fibers.
If yarn plexuses of a yellowish or pink shade appeared on your walls in your house, then you should immediately begin processing these places. If this is not done, then these threads will become grayish in the form of a thin film. This type of fungus feeds on wood pulp.
Fungi of white color have bottom tubes, which are interconnected in the form of honeycombs, and the spores are in them.
But at plus temperature and high humidity, spores of an olive-colored fungus may appear on the wood. They are less than spores in house fungus.
How to get rid of this problem
Since spores of wood fungi multiply in a humid environment, it is necessary to improve the ventilation of the air in the house. Then dry the walls well. To do this, use air heating guns. If there are none, then the walls are heated using a blowtorch. But here you need to work very carefully so that there is no fire. When you have dried the walls they need to be treated with protective compounds.
Not always such funds can be bought in the store, so you can use folk methods.
Make a composition of copper sulfate (20 parts) and wood vinegar (1 part). Both components must be joined together and mixed thoroughly before processing the walls.
After this treatment, the wooden walls are covered with a moisture-resistant protective solution prepared in equal parts from wax melted in a water bath and adding linseed oil. Instalikesfast.
