Damp Proofing

Mould cleaning/prevention on rafters


After some recent water ingress due to ridge tile cement coming loose (now fixed), I have noticed what looks like superficial mould/mildew on the rafters in the loft.
Please advise on the best way to clean this, and treat the wood for prevention afterwards.
There seems to be some conflicting information on the web.

Many thanks

Hi there
You need a solution to clear the Mould/fungi use tritec 121 plus which will also protect against any wood boring insects, this has to be mixed and put into a high pressure spray then treat the timbers,go on triton website to order your material google triton to find,it may also pay to put a roof vent tile in the affected area.
