Early detection is one of the {best|most effective} ways to fight the negative effects of excess water.

{It’s|It is} worth your attention. 500,000 Texas {homes|houses } were at risk of damage from storm surges during hurricane season. The most endangered areas are home to {almost|nearly} 7 million people! Was your {home|house} affected by this {devastating|catastrophic} prediction? {Keep|Continue} reading to {learn|find out} more about how to {spot|identify} the {symptoms|signs} of water damage.

Obvious Discoloration

This {usually|normally} {occurs|happens} on your ceilings but {could|may} be anywhere in your {home|residence}. It {could|might} be on walls {that|which} are {near|close} pipes or on the {floor|ground}. Wherever it is, this is one {sign|indication} that points to water damage.

The stains {tend to be|are normally} darker than the original color. Dark browns, dark yellows, oranges, and greens are {common|typical}. As water evaporates, {minerals and salt|salt and minerals} left behind {turn into|become} unsightly discoloration.

A {Strange and New|New and Unusual} Odor

A Strange and New Odor

Have you ever left laundry {in|from} the washing machine too long after the cycle was {over|finished}? {Rather than|As opposed to} smelling fresh detergent {when|once} you open the lid, {you’re|you are} greeted with a strange musk. 

This odor is what {happens|occurs} when moisture has a {chance|opportunity} to {sit|sit down} and cultivate. This is an ideal breeding ground for mold.

Humidity and the {presence|existence} of water are {perfect|ideal} growing conditions for these bacteria, and {unfortunately|sadly} the smell can linger. Without {removing|taking away} the excess water and the presence of {mold|mould}, the smell will {stay|remain}.

Warped Flooring

This is a {sign|indication} that you’ll {be able|have the ability} to see and feel. Wet subfloors will {cause|make} your {flooring|floors} to {start|begin} warping. {Depending|Based} {on|upon} the material of your {floor|flooring}, this can present itself in many ways.

Some floors {begin|start} to break away from the {foundation|base} and expand. Some {floors|flooring} become soggy and {begin|start} sinking. Others buckle, cup or {start|begin} to {rise|grow} up like a tent. Are you walking on uneven ground? Assume that the layers {beneath|under} {your|the} floor are harboring moisture. Early detection and treatment may save your {floors|flooring}.

Peeling or Bubbling Walls

This is {akin|comparable} to warped {flooring|floors}, but {on|in} your walls. Walls with moisture or mold can {begin|start} to bubble and peel. The walls themselves will be soft and {discolored|stained}.

This is a dangerous discovery. Excess moisture {in|on} your walls is {an obvious|a clear} {sign|indication} of a water damage problem in your {home|dwelling}. {This means|In other words,} the walls will no longer be {sturdy|hardy} and can {cause|result in} baseboards to {break and paint|paint and break} to {be|get} damaged. When water damage appears {on|in} your walls, this {means|implies} the leak has managed to {remain|stay} out of sight for awhile {until|till} this {point|stage}. {By|From} the time you can see the signs, the {damage|harm} is there.

Standing Water, Puddles, Etc..

Standing Water Puddles

Does your washing machine, {fridge|refrigerator}, water heater, or other appliance have a {leak|flow }? If so, {you’ll probably|you will likely} {notice|see} a puddle of water {beneath|under} them.

Don’t forget to {check|look at} your crawlspace, either. This {small|little} area allows you access to the {pipes and wires|wires and pipes} that run through your {home|dwelling}. If there is standing water in this {area|region}, you {may|might} have water damage in your {home|residence}.

Mold Growth

According to the CDC, mold {grows|develops} where there is moisture. Not all mold is {bad|poor} — and in {fact|actuality}, it’s {pretty|fairly} common. But {excess|surplus} mold can be bad for your health, so don’t let it go untreated.

Exposure to {damp|moist} environments can be {harmful|damaging} to our health. It has the potential to cause irritation in the eyes, nose, throat and skin. Damp environments indoors {can|may} {lead to|result in} upper respiratory tract {problems|issues} or asthma symptoms.

Simply cleaning or removing the {mold|mould} without professional help {won’t|will not} guarantee {that |}it isn’t coming back.

A Flooding Basement

A Flooding Basement

This is one of {the|those} {larger|bigger} symptoms of water damage. Does your {home|house} sit in {an area|a place} prone to flooding?

A basement {can|may} flood for {many|a number of} reasons, from leaky pipes {to|into} a flooded appliance. Check the {exterior|outside} of your {home|house} for any leaks, cracks, or areas {where|in which} you {notice|detect} water may seep in.

High Water Bill

Has your water bill been more {expensive|costly} {in recent months|lately}? If you compare this water bill to last {month’s|month}, the price {tag |}should be about the same, give or take a {few|couple} dollars. But an excessive water bill {could|may} be the {sign|indication} of leaking pipes or a broken appliance.
