How To Know If You Have Water Damage Or Water Intrusion In Your Home
Water intrusion caused by leaks and other related issues can result in serious damage in a typical residential home. In fact, water damage along with smoke damage can be the most expensive and costly repairs in a home. In many cases serious water damage can end up costing a homeowner tens of thousands of dollars in remediation, remodeling and renovation. Here are a few ways to know if water intrusion or water damage has occurred in your home of perhaps in a business.
Indicates That Water May Be Causing A Problem
For example, anytime you see cracking, sinking or sagging in a driveway or concrete walkway you can be sure that there is some type of water intrusion occurring. Equally of concern is when cracking happens in the plaster on walls. Along with this, cracked floor tiles or wood floors that heave upward also indicate that water may be causing a problem. Even doors and windows that do not close correctly could point to the same type of problem.
Anytime Water Damage is Detected On Baseboards or Plaster
Other common symptoms of water intrusion or water damage include finding water underneath a slab where HVAC return lines are located. In addition, sloping floors, walls that are cracking or falling apart or cracks in a slab underneath carpeting all suggest that water may be causing trouble. Finally, anytime water damage is detected on baseboards or plaster or if mold is found growing in the same areas, this also indicates that it may be time to contact a contractor to see how severe or serious the problem actually is going forward.
