Your home is the single largest investment you will ever make. You want it to last and stand the test of time. While regular maintenance is important, you also need to be alert for signs of other problems that might compromise the quality, security, and durability of your Bradenton home, such as water damage. Here are four signs that you might need water damage repairs.
1. Smells: If you smell musty, dank, wet odors in your home, including in the basement, chances are good that there is mold nearby. While mold should be addressed in its own right, its presence is a sign that there is moisture that must be dealt with, too.
2. Wood Flooring: Wood floors (and plywood subfloors) react to the presence of water in a couple of ways. They will swell, but they will also cup over time, creating an uneven appearance. If you notice this, call for water damage repairs immediately.
3. Peeling or Bubbling Paint: If you notice that the paint on your walls is beginning to bubble up, or has already started to peel, it’s a good sign that there’s moisture underneath trying to get out.
4. Stains: If you notice stains on your ceiling or walls, on your foundation, or in your basement, it’s a sign of moisture penetration and an indication that you need water damage repairs.
Water damage is not something to take chances with – it can compromise the integrity of your home and your family’s health. Call the professionals at FP Property Restoration today at (888) 408-2335.
