Signs on Walls That May Indicate Water Damage

Signs on Walls That May Indicate Water Damage

Water leaks and water damage from appliances and fixtures are easy to spot and repair, but hidden leaks can be problematic as they go undetected and wreak havoc on your property in the meantime. Though professionals like Tidal Wave Response have the equipment and technology to detect even the deepest water damage, it is tough for the average homeowner to spot these hidden leaks and water damage. Still, we want to share some tips on how you can catch issues before the water damage becomes intensive and even damages your foundation. Here are some signs on the wall that may indicate water damage.

Peeling Paint

Water is a natural solvent and can dissolve a lot of substances, and paint is no exception. When water seeps into the walls, it gets into the paint and breaks apart the bonding agents of the paint. This reaction causes paint to start bulging as moisture and air build up beneath the surface of the paint. Eventually, the air and moisture escapes, cracking the paint and peeling. So, if you start to see paint flaking off the walls, then it probably time to call the water damage restoration professionals. 

Water Stains

Even if water does not peel the paint, then it will at least leave stains. These stains are a result of water particles leached by wood beams and drywall. Though the stains will start small, they will grow over time and the sooner you catch them, the better. Keep your eye out for water stains if you want to locate the origin of the leak before the damage becomes more extensive.

Mold Growth

Water is a source of life and mold is a lifeform just like any other. Mold loves dark and moist surfaces, so water damage in hidden places is the ideal location for mold growth. Mold can be found in basements, kitchens, and bathrooms – basically anywhere dark and moist. It is important to address mold growth as soon as possible because they indicate water damage or leaks but will also cause damage themselves. Mold eats away on the organic material they grow on and can cause allergies and other respiratory problems.

Buckled Walls and Ceilings

Over time, water can cause serious damage. If you ignore or fail to detect water damage, you can experience buckled walls and ceilings. Ignoring these buckled walls and ceilings can be devastating as structural damage is costly to repair. If you see buckling on your walls and especially your ceiling, then it is past time to contact the professionals immediately. Don’t wait for extensive and irreparable damage.
