Fungus will attack and live on any decaying matter,
such as tree bark, dead wood in the garden and any wooden structures
that have started to rot.
To remove the fungus you have to remove the rot and then eliminate the

damp will need to be remedied.
Signs of Mold on Walls
Cracked or peeling paint, discoloration and bulging are all tell-tale signs that there could be moisture in a wall. If you notice any of these things in a wall in your home, take a closer look and you might see the beginnings of small amounts of mold growth.
These signs could also indicate that the mold is not just surface mould, but is actually growing hidden behind the damp wall, in the wall cavity. Seeing small spots of mold on a wall can sometimes be a sign that there is
a larger mold colony on the other side which is slowly growing through.
Smelling a moldy odor or suffering allergic reactions are also good indications there could be mold growing hidden behind a wall in your home.
