How do you know when there is water damage to – or within – your walls?

Sometimes water damage is glaringly obvious but sometimes it’s completely hidden. A slow leak behind your walls may take a long time to create a visible stain. In the meantime, water could be seeping into flooring, drywall, and support beams. How can you tell if this is happening? Here are some indications:

  • Unexplained dark spots or stains appearing on the wall
  • Walls that feel damp when you touch them
  • Peeling wallpaper
  • Peeling paint
  • Musty, moldy odor near the wall
  • Walls warping slightly out of shape
  • Buckling floors or ceilings
  • Mold growth on the wall, ceiling, or baseboards

Why is this happening?

Water damage can occur to your home or business due to either internal or external sources. You may have a plumbing leak somewhere that you can’t see. Maybe your drainage systems aren’t quite working properly. Plus, Tampa has had plenty of storm surges, hurricanes, and flooding. Your house may ride out the storm, but moisture and water can find ways of getting in. Even on typical rainy days, water droplets can enter your house through chimneys, vents, skylights, unsealed windows, or cracked masonry. Whichever way moisture gets in to your property, it can cause damage if you don’t catch it in time.  That’s what you need us for!
