How to Tell if You Need Water Damage Restoration

  • Mold: Unfortunately, leaking water and increasing condensation can become a breeding ground for mold. Left unattended, the mold can grow very quickly and cause a number of problems, like health issues, deteriorating walls, strange smells, and more.
  • Water stains: Your walls and ceilings usually remain the same color. Time might make the paint fade a little bit eventually, but you shouldn’t be finding dark-colored stains unless you have water damage. If you find brown or yellow discolored spots on your ceiling or walls, then you most likely have a leak somewhere and should get it fixed.
  • Warped wood: Wood doesn’t always do too well with extreme moisture. If an increase of collected moisture reaches your wooden floors or walls, you’re likely to find that water has made the floors buckle or the walls warp.
  • Flooding: Obviously, if you’re finding pools or puddles of water then you need to call for professional water damage restoration. This can come from leaky or broken pipes and should fixed as soon as possible.
