SERVPRO Offers Tips on Water Damage Signs in Fallbrook / South Oceanside
Unfortunately, water can flow to any area of your home once a structural defect or natural disaster strikes your property. Water Damage in Fallbrook and Oceanside or anywhere in San Diego County can be an expensive and upsetting result of this unwanted water. SERVPRO of Fallbrook / South Oceanside suggests, that by reading the following tell-tale signs of water intrusion you may recognize and stymie the onslaught of extensive and expensive water damage to your home.
1. Unpleasant Smells
When hidden residual water or moisture accumulates on your property, it can initiate the growth of mold and mildew. This will produce an earthy, musty odor which functions as a red flag that unseen water damage is present on your property.
2. Visual Signs of Mold Growth
Mold spores are microscopic, lying dormant in most homes, and will eventually produce mold colonies when provided with moisture. Food sources--cellulose materials and other organics are readily available. When the moisture comes in contact with dormant spores, the active mold growth process will begin. If you note any fuzzy discolorations in isolated corners or voids, and are not sure if mold is growing, you should have these spaces professionally inspected. SERVPRO of Fallbrook / South Oceanside will visit your property in Fallbrook, Oceanside, Vista, Bonsall, and San Diego North County to offer complimentary advice.
3. Stains on Walls and Ceilings
When water seeps into subflooring and the spaces between the levels of your structure, it will generate water stains as it starts to saturate the adjacent ceiling or wall board. This form of water damage can be a precursor to widening problems.
4. Peeling Paint or Wall Paper
These can happen to your walls as water wicks and lifts the paint or loosens the paste securing the wallpaper. The water or moisture source should be discovered and repaired immediately.
5. Sagging Walls and Ceilings
Saturated ceiling materials or drywall can appear to be displaced because of the added weight of water. Once this happens, the structures can start to buckle and deform. When walls and ceilings become soaked with water, they pose a safety hazard from falling. Don't ignore any tell-tale signs of water absorption into porous drywall.
6. Floor Effects
Water seeks its lowest level when allowed to flow. The flooring is the usual endpoint as water can collect beneath ceramic or vinyl tile (also damaging subfloor sheathing), carpets and padding. Newly manufactured laminate flooring is particularly susceptible to water damage. If your subfloor becomes completely soaked, restoring rather than replacing the materials, becomes more remote. SERVPRO of Fallbrook / South Oceanside makes every effort to remove the water and dry out these flooring materials, but often they are non-salvageable and must be safely discarded.
