Your Best Water Damage Detection System is You
When it comes to water damage, the speed of water removal is the key. The longer it lingers undetected, the worse the problem can be. Problems from faulty plumbing can escalate very quickly. Not only can the water destroy your furnishings and property structure, but it can lead to mold growth. The best way to detect water damage in your home is to be vigilant and aware of changes to your home. At SERVPRO, we believe in vigilance to detect water damage quickly.
Watch for water damage after storms or a plumbing leak
As a homeowner, it’s important to check your home thoroughly after a major storm or a plumbing leak. Many people make the mistake of assuming that once the water stops flowing, you’re in the clear but that’s not the case. Step one is to stop the water, but then look for further damage. Indications of possible water damage may include cracks or seams splitting in walls or the ceiling, tiles or wood floors lifting, or a musty odor. If you have any of these, call in a pro to make sure you get the damage handled quickly. Monitoring your water bill is another option you can consider. If you become accustomed to performing the usual, then you are aware of water usage. Keeping an eye on the monthly bill can reveal a sudden increase in usage from a leak.
