I Saw the Signs: 4 Signs of Water Damage
When unwanted water seeps into places it doesn’t belong, it brings numerous issues along that can make matters worse. Water damage can become more serious as the problem goes undetected or unaddressed. Not only does water damage spread, it also becomes significantly at risk of mold formation in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, water damage isn’t always apparent. Our skilled technicians at SERVPRO of Rock County are equipped with infrared sensors which can detect temperature changes within the walls. But what are the signs to notice before you give us a ring? Here are 4 signs of impending water damage.
Do you hear what I hear? : Most of us are familiar with the sounds our homes make. From the rushing water of the plumbing systems, to creaking floorboards in the hallways, they become less alarming as time goes by. What you need to pay attention to are the different or unfamiliar sounds your home may be making. From a slow drip to flowing water, be aware of the sounds around you, they may indicate a larger problem.
What stinks? : When moisture comes in contact in dark places, a distinct scent of mildew is sure to follow. Trust your nose and follow it to the source. Early detection may help you prevent a huge mold infestation on top of the water damages.
From a puddle to a pool: Have you noticed unexplainable pools of water? Any puddles that keep reappearing after you’ve cleaned them? Chances are you are facing a leak somewhere in the area.
Cold Abode: Moisture and water tend to zap a home of heat, as it draws it in to evaporate. If your home is difficult to heat or your walls are cold to the touch, it may be an indication of moisture within.
When water damage presents itself unexpectedly, give us a call day or night and we will be there to make things right!
