How to Recognize Water Damage

Water damage is the most common disaster you can encounter in your home. It can happen anywhere, anytime, and inflict costly property damage if not dealt with properly. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to prevent the incident from getting worse. One example is to familiarize yourself with the following warning signs of water damage. Some of the most common water damage warning signs include:

Wet Carpets and Soft Wood Floors

Wet Carpets and Soft Wood Floors

Water from broken pipes can seep through the floors and completely drench your carpets and wood floors. Water damaged wood floors may tend to warp or swell and leave a brittle texture. In some cases, it may be possible to manually dry the affected area of the floors by yourself. However, if you’re looking for something faster and more reliable, it’s better to let the restoration experts use water extraction and restoration methods to prevent structural damages and costlier issues.

Appliance Leaks and Overflows

Appliance Leaks and Overflows

If you notice that your dishwasher, water heater, or washing machine is leaking, you should have your appliance repaired as soon as possible. Leaks can lead to overflows, flooding and could damage the components of your appliance, which is more expensive to repair.

Damaged and Frozen Pipes

Burst pipes are often caused by damaged or frozen pipes. Pipe damage can develop from poorly designed plumbing while frozen pipes usually occur during winter. No matter what the reason is, it’s crucial to have the affected pipe checked and repaired before it breaks.

Mold and Water Stains

Mold and water stains that have formed on the walls, ceilings, or floors of your home are a tell-tale sign of water damage. The best way to get rid of these blemishes is to have them professionally dried, remediated, and removed.
