how to identify early signs of water Damage
It doesn't take much for water damage to cause hours, weeks, or even months of restoration. One of the most effective ways to prevent this from happening is to understand and recognize the causes.
The most common signs of water damage that can appear somewhere in your home or office are:
Bursting or leaky pipes
roof leak due to rain
Plumbing system issues
Air conditioning condensation
A musty or mildewy odor
A higher-than-usual water bill
Visible stains or discoloration in your ceilings, floors, or walls
The obvious signs of water damage are puddles or pools of standing water or the sound of running water coming from somewhere in your home. However, other indications can help you identify if you are facing a water damage issue as well.
Risks of Water Damage
If water damage is not properly taken care of, it may become a greater problem for your home and even your health. Standing water unresolved can become a breeding ground for microorganisms that host a multitude of viruses and bacteria. These viruses and bacteria can become airborne in your home or office. Another pressing risk is mold growth, which can start to grow within hours of exposure to water and continue to exist long after the water is gone.
