Examining For Water Damage In Your Home

We sometimes take running water in our homes for granted. Maintaining the plumbing is essential for a dry home. Water damage will most likely happen if these systems aren’t checked often. Results could be a multitude of other problems. Damage occurs when the moisture makes contact with non water resistant surfaces. Discoloration of your furniture or carpets, warping of the building, and unpleasant odors could result. Remember that mold is the enemy! Examine your ceilings throughout your home to see if there are any tell-tale signs of water damage from either a leak from your roof or your plumbing. Often times these leaks are slow and insidious, but build up over time to cause mold and other damage.

Should you find leaking anywhere, pools of water will form. If a puddle is found, watch out for the same area after it is cleaned up. If it repeats, that is an indication of a problem area. Dripping water or creaking floorboards indicate an area that needs to be examined closely. Check to make sure it is not the functional plumbing you have set up. If there are discolored “streaks” of water on the side of your house, this may be a sign of gutters that overflow. A damp home has a very distinct smell. Mold can form with a specific smell as well. Look out for smells as well as other indicators of water damage. We are not just talking about condensation in your bathroom, but other areas of your home. If you see mold, that is a sure sign of water damage–just like you can not have a fire without smoke. Mold has a smell and can cause health problems. Your home may be damp, which affects the walls, causing the house to be difficult to heat. Moisture and water draws heat from the walls, leaving them colder.
