Signs of Water Damage

It’s important to make sure you know a few simple signs of water damage as it can prevent you from having extensive water damage occur in your home.

1.) Standing Water: Standing water is clearly the most obvious sign of water damage. After all, if you have enough water to create a kiddy pool in your living room, there is clearly a problem. This type of water damage is the most dangerous, as it is present and requires immediate remediation. If you have standing water from a broken pipe, flood or other water source, contact 911 Remediation as soon as possible as every minute the water sits, the chance of disease and damage continues to increase.

2.) Water Stains: Water stains are one of the most visible signs of water damage. Water stains more commonly occur around the source of water, especially in bathrooms and kitchens near sinks, refrigerators, dish wasters and toilets. If a small amount of water overtime is leaking from one of these areas, it will gradually accumulate in and around the surrounding area, such as the floor or cabinets. If you start to see wood floors buckling or notice discoloration of fabrics such as curtains or carpets, chances are you have a water leak and thus water damage occurring below the surface. Additionally, if you notice drywall around your ceiling is beginning to crumble, you could be experiencing water damage from within the roof, especially from ice or snow.
