Once Water Leaks or Flooding Occurs the Clock Starts Ticking
It’s simple. The longer water or moisture is there, the more damage it will do and the more it will cost to bring things back to normal, if ever! In moist conditions, mold will start to grow within 24 to 48 hours. Spores are already everywhere. Add moisture and they spring to life and infest your home. Some molds are toxic and dangerous to the health of your family. This is why it is important not only to act quickly to dry things, but to be sure you can detect hidden moisture.
The following are pictures of a bathroom that flooded and impacted the kitchen.
3 WAYS TO DETECT WATER DAMAGE IN YOUR HOME
The key to minimizing the damage and cost of a water leak is early detection. Of course, standing water is a dead giveaway. But here are three more signs to look for.
SPOTS OR STAINS: Areas don’t have to look wet , but and discoloration can mean hidden moisture.
PHYSICAL CHANGES: Note the texture of walls and floors and ceilings. Warping, buckling or sagging may be a major clue there has been water damage.
ODORS: Your nose knows more than you think. A musty smell may indicate there is mildew. Mildew can be one of the first signs of undetected moisture in your home.
If you suspect moisture, immediately contact Steam Action Restoration Services, your water damage specialist. We have advanced moisture defections devices that can tell you for sure.
