Water Damage Comes in Many Forms

Water Damage Comes in Many Forms

One of the first situations of water touching any surface is damage. When water is left on a surface of any sort, it begins to cause this destruction. For furniture, it seeps into the inner padding and penetrates every pore. When it gets on wood, it starts to break down the outer coating, even with the thickest of protection, and when left on a floor at the top level of a house or building, it tears out the bottom and can drop the upstairs into the downstairs quickly. 

At SERVPRO of Southern Butler County, we know where to look when your home has been impacted by water standing too long or simply touching things that water should not touch. The hidden water damage may not show up until mold shows up, and by then, we are talking about a new set of techniques for removing the mold. Because we want your valuables and your home to be protected, you must call us as soon as you see the presence of water, so our highly trained team can help protect your things. 

Water damage occurs for many reasons, from broken pipes to natural disasters. When any of these things happen, you are at risk for loss. So here are three things to look for to create a situation of restoration, not a replacement. 

Presence of water on the walls or floor – if you see condensation on your walls, you will probably see water damage. Condensation can come from moisture under the foundation and various other places. 

Water seeping indoors during a storm – If you see moisture gathered around your door frame just after a rain, you may have a small space between the door molding and the edge. Check to see if you should replace the rubber sealer. 

Brown Blotches on your Ceiling: This is the time to get someone to look at your roof and attic. Sadly, so many homes are destroyed by leaks in even a single shingle.
