Signs of Water Damage in Your Home
Water damage is a very common occurrence in residential homes and it often always goes unnoticed. Although you may think detecting flooding or leaks is easy, sometimes signs of water damage are more behind-the-scenes.
This is why it’s best to inspect your home, even if you don’t think there are any issues. Water damage can lead to other issues like mold and structural repairs. Here are a few signs to watch out for to make sure you don’t get.
Ceiling cracks and stains
Any cracks or stains on your ceiling is a very visible sign that you have water damage. Three may be a leak on your roof or in the piping in your walls. Don’t ignore any sagging areas, stains, or cracks in your ceiling!
Wood and wall discoloration
If you have wood walls and you notice any rotting or decaying areas, there’s a leak somewhere. Call a professional ASAP to have this checked.
Don’t forget to check the areas where your pipes are, like the cabinets in your bathroom or kitchen. Be on the lookout for any water stains, warping or signs of discoloration.
Unusual smells and odors.
Sometimes, the best way to check for water damage is by using your sense of smell as well. If you notice a musty smell, you may have mold or mildew affecting your home.
