Signs of Water Damage
All water damage is not alike. You may not immediately see evidence of excess water, but there are some signs to watch for:
- Unusual warm spots on the floor
- Soft spots or discoloration on your walls or ceilings
- The sound of flowing or dripping water
- Unusual odors
- Signs of mold or mildew
- Wet spots in carpeting or unusually soft boards in flooring
- Low water pressure
- Standing water outside around your foundation
You may not realize that hot water pipes can run under the foundation. If damage occurs from rocks, seismic activity, or shifting in clay soils, it can cause a break in the lines, creating what is called a slab leak. While you may not see water indoors immediately, understanding what an unexplained warm spot on your floor could mean can alert you to impending flooding and save you from expensive damage to the interior of your home. You should also check to see if you have standing water around your foundation when you notice the spot.
Common Causes of Water Damage
There can be many causes of water damage. Some of the most common causes of household damage come from failed water heaters, overflowing clothes or dishwashers, running toilets, faulty seals, or pipe breaks. Even a failsafe like the water heater drain pan can cause issues when they become plugged, allowing the water to overflow or escape through holes where rust has formed.
We also can’t forget about the forces of Mother Nature. Natural disasters like floodwaters, storms, hurricanes, and tornadoes can introduce vast amounts of water into structures, causing devastation. Even straight-line winds during thunderstorms can damage or remove whole sections of the roof, break windows, and blow indoors, allowing the rain to pour in. Those in flood zones or near bodies of water are at even higher risk of flooding during storms.
You may not realize that even buildings located in areas that are in a drought are at risk of flooding. When the ground becomes hard during a prolonged water deficit and is then subjected to sudden rainfall, flash flooding can result. The sun-baked soil cannot absorb water quickly enough to prevent the runoff, resulting in flooded cars, homes, and businesses.
When a home or office becomes saturated with water, it can become a hot spot for health problems. Mold and mildew can cause respiratory issues from mild allergic reactions to severe asthma. Prolonged exposure to water can also break down materials used in the construction of walls or furniture, releasing toxic chemicals. In some cases, black mold can form, creating such symptoms as irritation to the lungs, sinuses, eyes and mucus membranes, chronic fatigue, severe headaches, and skin rashes.
Other risks of unnoticed or unmitigated water exposure include those to the building’s electrical wiring. Shorts from electrical surges can cause blown fuses, damage to appliances, and even fires. Corrosion from repeated or long-term water exposure can result in lighting problems and reduced energy efficiency. Items that have been in contact with the water like draperies, rugs, and furniture can also sustain damage or even be ruined.
