Warning Signs of Water Intrusion
Water intrusion can lead to staining and mold, and can compromise the structural integrity of your home. The best way to cope with the possible threat is to understand the warning signs.
- Visible detection of moisture or water: This is the most obvious sign of water intrusion. Drywall typically turns yellow or light brown when it’s wet, making leaks easy to spot. If you see brown spots on the ceiling below a bathroom, or below a room that has a sink, it’s likely that there is a water leak nearby.
- Low water pressure: An unexplained drop in water pressure may mean there is a leak somewhere in the system. While clogged pipes and faulty valves on water heaters may be to blame, a leak inspection expert can help you keep a leak from ballooning into more damage.
- Cracks or buckling walls: If you experience cracks in your walls – either diagonal, vertical or horizontal – you need to quickly determine the cause. If one or more of your walls is no longer flush and starts to buckle or bow inward, this could be a sign of the presence of water.
- Smell of mildew: This is often a warning sign that you have a leak or water intrusion of some kind. Unpleasant smells are often due to mold and mildew, which spread fast under ideal conditions. In fact, mold can start to incubate and grow in as little as 72 hours.
