The time of duration of the wood is related to the resistance that it has to the fungi that can rot it, known as xylophages. These are the cause of the deterioration that the wood suffers and the putrefaction that sometimes appears.
The fungi that appear in wood have a moisture content greater than 20%. For this reason, it should not only be treated in the appropriate way, but it should also be ensured that it has a minimum exposure to moisture. One of the measures recommended, for example, is that the wooden pillars that are placed on porches and exteriors should not be in direct contact with the ground. It is also recommended that the heads of beams in walls, where there is a possibility of humidity, should have a good exposure to the air.
