While a major storm damage event is a no-brainer, some water damage issues go undetected until it’s too late. Any barriers to the outside world are at risk for water damage. Here are quick signs of water damage:
– Water spots on your ceilings: Over time, pipes and seals can become compromised. While major pipe breaks are easy to see, you may see small water spots on your ceiling. This should be taken very seriously and acted on immediately.
– Water smelling musty, moldy, dank, or dirty: Some rooms just smell different especially basements, mudrooms, and even laundry rooms. Just like small and undetected roof or pipe leaks, appliances are subjected to small leaks. While one or two drops a day isn’t much to worry about – compounding that over time can cause flooring, tile, and even subfloor issues.
– Water-looking sheeting down walls or standing water spots that don’t go away: Anyone who has lived in North Carolina has seen moisture and condensation on interior walls and windows. Especially when we have our air conditioners on full blast during the hotter summer months. While some condensation on windows is perfectly expected, larger water-looking sheeting or larger wet spots in corners or windowsills should be inspected by a certified company.
