Salt Contamination as a result of dampness
Plaster Fungi - Peziza spp
In another part of the building our surveyor discovered another problem related to the penetrating damp problem – fungal decay, in this case Plaster fungi. The surveyor identified the plaster fungi to be of the Peziza species – these tend to be found on damp brick work or plaster. This type of plaster fungi feeds on surface detritus or on organic material that is part of the walls – for example hair within old types of plaster.
