When you bought your home in Tallahassee, chances are good that you did not think all that much about the eventual need for repairs, particularly for water damage restoration. However, flooding can and does happen. Even if you do not suffer from regional flooding, there’s the chance that your home will be damaged by water in another way, such as a roof leak, a burst pipe, or even from putting out a fire. Here are a few signs that you need to consider water damage restoration.
One of the most common signs that your Tallahassee home is experiencing problems with water is bulging sheetrock. This might be on the ceiling or on a wall, but once the sheetrock is wet, it will begin to bulge and then sag. Eventually, this can lead to a number of other problems, ranging from mold growth to collapse of the affected area.
Another sign that you have water damage that needs to be repaired is discoloration. Again, this is most common on the ceiling and the walls of your home. If your water pipes are in the ceiling, rather than in the floor, then a pipe leak could be causing your issue. It may also be a roof leak. Mold growth, further discoloration, bulging and sagging, and then collapse can follow.
Finally, you may not see any signs of water damage, but you might smell a dank, damp odor. This is a sign that you have mold growth in your home. Understand that mold will not grow if there is not sufficient moisture, which means mold growth goes hand in hand with water damage.
