I recently purchased a product called a wood hardener. You must first remove all soft wood and dust and restore it with new wood or filler. I did this with a wire brush and lung power. Either cut the area out and replace it or use putty and sand it smooth. It comes in a pourable liquid but I used a brush. I coated any sign of rot and included another 6-10" out from there. I think it's going to work. It permeates the wood, hardens it, and makes it more difficult for dryrot to spread. This was for a bathroom floor. Cindy
