Hidden Water Damage & Long Term Effects

The 2018 hurricane season has been an unusually quiet one, but there's still time for more storms to head our way. Tropical Storm Gordon caught us in the peak of the season, and there are still more storms brewing. When heavy storms hit us, we tend to look for the obvious signs of water – puddles from mysterious leaks, drips from the ceiling, or flooding from rising waters. Once those are checked out, we tend to move on with our lives. While that may seem like enough, it's so important to check for signs of hidden leaks. Signs of possible hidden leaks:
  • Mold / Mildew
  • Damaged Paint / Wallpaper
  • Stain Pools on Walls / Ceilings
  • Damaged Walls (warping, cracks, discolored)
  • Musty Smells
  • Warped Door Frames / Door Alignment
  • Condensation
  • Damaged Flooring
There are also things to check and be mindful of on the exterior of your home regarding storm and water damage, as well as other weather related damage. Be sure to look for:
  • Lifted, stressed, or cracked shingles
  • Cracks, splits, and chips in siding, stucco, paint, or wood
  • Debris-driven dings and dents on roofing, siding, windows, and doors
  • Soggy / swollen wood
  • Leaks around windows
