Not only can your wood get wet and rot, it can also get mold and fungus. This fungus or mold will not only affect your wood pile but could spread into your house and inffect books, carpets, plants and walls. The United States Environmental Protection Agency suggests that you only burn woods with mold or fungus outdoors and indoor burning could cause the mold spores to enter your houses air space.
Using a Landmann Firewood Storage Rack can reduce or even eliminate this risk. Keeping the wood off the ground and covered with a weather resistant cover will help save your wood.
