Oftentimes water damage can go unnoticed, especially if the damage is not readily visible. When a washing machine floods or your water heater bursts, you know where the damage is. However, sometimes the clues are not as obvious—you may not realize you even have a problem until it's almost too late. And problems that go unnoticed, or worse, untreated, can lead to bigger problems down the road, aka MOLD. That's why you should pay attention to the signs your house is giving you, and take care of any water damage you notice (or suspect) right away. If you are not sure how you can tell that you have water damage in your home, here are five things to look for:

You have a couple of choices here, either hire a leak detection company or try and find the source of the leak yourself. One easy way is to locate your water meter (if you are not sure where it is, contact the billing department of your water company), make sure no water is being used in the house, and check the leak indicator to see if it moves. If it moves, chances are you may have a leak. You can also take a meter reading and check back after a couple of hours. If the reading changed, that is also a sign that there's a possible leak.
The next step would be to determine if the leak is inside or outside. To do this, locate your main shut off valve and shut off the water. Read your meter or check the leak indicator (again, make sure that no water is being used inside the house). If the leak indicator stops moving or there is no change in the meter readings, then you have a leak inside of the house. If the leak indicator continues to move or there is a change in the meter readings, then the leak is outside between the meter and the house.
The effect of water damage inside a house is extremely time-sensitive. To avoid any major damage or problems in the future, stay alert. If you suspect or have discovered damage in your home, call the professionals, Dalworth Restoration, immediately.
