Learn The Top Three Signs Of Water Damage In Your Phoenix Home
Identifying The Tells of Water Damage in Phoenix
Identifying signs of water damage to your Phoenix home sooner rather than later can make a difference of thousands of dollars in restoration expenses. SERVPRO technicians maintain readiness on a 24/7 basis to respond quickly to floods, burst pipes, and other calamities, saving time and money by getting to the job site faster. By identifying and treating problems earlier, we can help to prevent situations such as mold growth and severe oxidation from causing damage to the structural components of your home. Here are a few signs that may indicate water damage in your home.
Many materials common in homes in Phoenix show water damage through discoloration. Pigments used in fabrics, paints, flooring, and other surfaces can change color on a permanent or temporary basis when they come in contact with water. The shape, spread, and specific color of these spots can vary depending on how much water has been released, and what materials it has already come in contact with. One of the most destructive processes in a water damaged home is color bleed from one fabric to another, but a fast call to SERVPRO can help to avoid color bleeding.
Several different complications of water damage can create unusual and off-putting smells, sometimes very soon after the damaging water incident happens. Oxidizing metals, freshly-soaked wood, and other materials, and long-term mold growth can all create unique and pungent odors in your home. While smells can be useful to identify a problem, you do not want them around forever, which is why SERVPRO technicians use multiple deodorization methods to rid your home of any unwanted smells.
Unusual sounds behind walls and below floors could be indicative of a water leak or other plumbing issue in your home. Drips may be obvious when you hear them, but be alert for other unusual sounds as well. Water at high pressure inside pipes in your home can create unique sounds when something is amiss.
