We literally couldn't survive without water: we need to clean ourselves, to keep us hydrated, and we're even made of it. However, too much of it can do some harm as well. For instance, if your home has water damage, it may put your safety, your house's structure, and your belongings at risk. This is why, if you suspect that your home may have some degree of water damage, you need to identify it quickly and get it fixed as soon as possible. To that end, this post has some signs you should look out for to know if your home has water damage.

How to Tell if You Need Water Damage Repair and Mold Remediation in Tuckahoe

  1. The first sign that there may be something wrong in your home, is if you start noticing water stains on your walls, ceilings, and floors. Look for the yellowish circles around your home to find out.
  2. If your home is made of drywall or wood, you will start seeing it become swollen if certain areas of your house are accumulating water. This is because these materials tend to absorb the water.
  3. Speaking of absorbing water, you're probably aware that wood can get damaged when in contact with liquids. That's why it's important to inspect your home and search for rotting wood.
  4. You can also make use of your nose to know if there's a water damage problem in and around your house. Take a smelling tour of it and be aware of that notorious humid, unfresh odor in the air.
  5. Chances are, that if you see and/or listen to water dripping somewhere in your home, then it's likely that you have some degree of water damage. Pay attention to your piping system and ensure it's in good shape.
  6. Water damage to your home can also take its toll on its appearance. For example, the paint may be affected: it may start to get discolored, it may begin to bubble, and in some cases, it will start to peel off your walls and ceiling, so keep it in mind.
  7. You almost can't have water damage without mold growth. If you see that disgusting little fungus developing in your home, be sure to call 804.282.1281 to contact Walker & Frick Construction Co., Inc. DKI for expert mold remediation in Tuckahoe.
  8. The high humidity levels around your house can also make a difference in how it feels. You can use your hands and sense of touch to go through the walls and feel if they're damp.
  9. Every house has small details that need fixing here and there. Still, if you start noticing that the cracks are getting bigger, then there's a high probability that your home is damaged by water.
  10. If you suspect that there's water damage in your home, you may also want to take a look at your roof. Water may have accumulated there, which can result in dents or broken shingles in your roof.
  11. It's common knowledge that water and certain metals just don't get along. If the metals in your home have rust, then they've been in contact with water and have started an oxidation process.
  12. A big indicator that there may be an issue with your home is if your attic and basement are in bad shape. This is because these are the areas that are affected first when there's water damage.
  13. If the caulk around the pipes are loose, it's in all likelihood because water has been leaking through them, causing water damage.
  14. Finally, you may want to examine your home's exterior. Check it closely, and if the outside is in poor condition, there are persistent puddles, or the ground slopes towards your home, there may be water damage.
