Warning Signs to Detect Water Damage

Water damages show up when you least expect them to. Sometimes, the water damage stays around for a long time without someone noticing them which ends up in bigger problems like mold damage, excessive water damage, rot, and more. 

However, you may be able to avoid severe water damage if you know how to detect them in the first place. Dalworth Restoration is here to help you identify warning signs that water damage is around the corner.


Telltale Warning Signs of Water Damage

  • Discoloration - often appears on walls, and ceilings, smudging the color or producing a different color altogether. Also formation of water rings, usually a light brown color. 
  • Musty smells - a musty/moldy smell indicates there is mold growing somewhere on your property. Other than structural damage, this could be potentially harmful to your family too.
  • Peeling paint or wallpaper - excess moisture absorption may lead to flaking or peeling off of paint or wallpaper in certain areas of your home.
  • Utility bill spikes - if you notice a sudden spike in your water bills, this could mean water is leaking somewhere without you knowing about it.
  • Slow leaks - slow leaks from plumbing pipes, kitchen faucets, sinks and more may also lead to water damage if not paid attention to in time.
