Signs of Water Damage in a Dallas Home
SERVPRO likes to help out the community when it comes to water damage. We aren't afraid to give some tips on what water damage looks like and what to look for.
Water Stains on the House
Water stains are the first sign you should be looking for, they are usually yellow looking spots on walls and the ceiling. Check those areas to find water damage.
In some occasions, drywall will absorb some of the excess moisture in a property, which will cause it to bubble up and become swollen. Go around and look at the walls to see if you have any of these symptoms.
Rotting Wooden Items
Speaking of materials that tend to accumulate/absorb water, you should also take a good look at any rotten wood in the house. Verify that the wooden furniture, fixtures, and more, are in good condition.
A Nasty, Humid Smell
The smell of excess humidity or mold presence in a place is unmistakable, as it has a strong scent of unfresh, rotten eggs, mixed with a dirty, wet dog. Smell the property intently to notice this disgusting odor.
The Sound of Leaks Around the House
Of course, if you hear water dripping around the house, there may be a leak. However, if that leak has been there for a long time, then you can almost bet that there is some water damage in the property.
Paint in Bad Shape
The paint job on the property also suffers when there's excess humidity or water damage. For that reason, it's important that you notice its condition: if it's bubbling, discolored, or it's peeling off, there may be some damage.
