Water Damage

4 More Ways to Prevent Flood Damage to Your Home

A common concern for homeowners is moisture seepage which can lead to water damage. Water damage is most commonly noticed around pipes, in bathrooms or kitchens, although leaks from these rooms can impact surrounding rooms. One of the primary concerns of long term water damage is mold development. Mold loves damp, dark areas, so this water damage may be hidden and difficult to find. It can often grow behind wallpaper, under carpets etc. Even above ceiling tiles! You must do a thorough mold inspection of your home if you are to find it all, including looking into the very structure and fabric of the building.

Most water damage will be visible to the naked eye. Mold growth will often be noticed by the odor given off, best described as a musky smell. Another concern of long term water damage is wood rot. This can lead to damaged floor boards and wll joints which can lead to serious issues if left unattended.
