Sometimes the signs of water damage don’t make themselves entirely visible until it’s too late. If you’re moving to a new property, residential or commercial, be sure to have a water and fire damage expert take a look over the property to ensure there are no hidden damages. Here’s what you can look for at first glance:
- Leaks under the sink – are there signs of water leaking, drip spots, or smells that indicate moisture?
- In the walls – check for soft spots or staining. These could be signs of a small water leak, but they can lead to much larger problems.
- Mold & mildew – strong odors of must and visible mold growth in damp areas – there is most likely mold that is growing.
