Sneaky Water Leaks Lead to Damage--Call SERVPRO

Signs of Hidden Water Damage in Your Fort Myers Shores Home

Water damage can at times be challenging to notice especially when the water leakage happens quite slowly. The following hidden signs will help you to notice some water damage in your home:

 A rise in your water bill
You may note that your water bill has risen gradually over the months without an obvious cause or even a notice of an increase in water rates. This change should ring in your mind that there might be a problem of water damage in your Fort Myers Shores home.

Paint or wallpaper peeling
If you notice a spot or a section of your house where the wallpaper has peeled and is slowly detaching from the wall, it may be a sign of water damage. The paint may also peel off and appear wet and at times appear like an overhanging layer on the wall. Upon such indications, contact our SERVPRO team so that we handle the water damage for you promptly.

Wall discoloration
When you find the color of your walls or ceiling changing or appearance of some blackish or grayish spots on your wall or ceiling, it might be a sign of water damage near or at that particular point. On the ceiling, a colored ring will be visible. If you give us a call at SERVPRO, our team of professionals will take care of the water damage timely enough before the damage destroys your wall.

 Strange dripping sound
When there is a total silence especially at night, if you hear some strange water dripping sound on the floor or water sinks of your house, it may suggest water leakage.

A strange foul odor
If you notice a strange foul odor within your house especially coming from a corner of a wall or under the couches, it might be a hidden water damage sign. The water might have stagnated for some time hence becoming smelly.
 
Water damage if noticed late or goes unnoticed for quite a long time can lead to significant damage if not resolved. Be sure to contact us at (305) 278-8484 and our SERVPRO of Ft Myers / Punta Gorda can begin to help with the water cleanup and restoration.
