Do You Have Water Damage in Your Home? Here Are the Signs to Look Out For

Water damage is a dangerous condition that can occur when high amounts of water leak through the walls and floors of a home. The only thing worse than experiencing this kind of damage is not knowing about it before it becomes life-threatening. Fortunately, there are warning signs you should be looking out for that will alert you to this dangerous condition before it reaches hazardous levels. Read on for more information on identifying 5 common signs of water damage in the home.

Warped Flooring

Water damage is no fun, and it can be a headache as well as an eyesore. Luckily, warped flooring can be easily identified, as there will be areas of the floor that are obviously misshapen compared to unaffected areas. There tend to be more warped floors in kitchens than in other parts of the home. If you spot any warped flooring areas, you should immediately contact your water damage restoration professional.

Water Damage

Classic signs of water damage include a strongly off-putting, musty odor, rusty metals around the house, and rotting wooden items. If you notice your dishwasher leaking water around the base, ice forming on the corners of cold appliances, or air conditioning units not working, you may have water-damaged appliances. These are generally very expensive to replace, so it is important to call an experienced technician as soon as you spot any of these signs.

 Mold

Mold growing on walls or ceilings, or in places you can’t reach, is a sign that there is water damage behind those walls or ceiling. Molds are a large group of fungi. They grow on dead and decaying matter and can cause health problems in people who inhale or ingest them.

Molds thrive in warm, humid conditions. If your home has mold growth, this can become a serious health hazard. If you suspect a mold problem in your home, contact a mold removal professional.

High Water Bill

You may have noticed that your monthly water bill is high, and are wondering what’s causing it. Your pipes, faucets, and drains might be leaking from a cracked or burst pipe. Damage to your plumbing system can cause a significant increase to your water bill. Hiring a water damage repair service as soon as possible is essential to avoid paying high water bills.

Stained Walls and Ceilings

If you take a look around your home, you may notice that the walls and ceilings in some areas have stains. There are many different causes for this, but water damage is usually the easiest to identify. When you have a leak, the walls and ceilings in your home absorb that excess water. The worst part is that you may not be able to tell till your ceiling starts to discolor or appears stained. A damaged ceiling may not be a problem at first, but regular water leaks can lead to something far worse, like a flooded house, if they are not corrected early.
