People living in the Phoenix area may not think water damage is a threat to them, but it can happen anywhere in any climate. Not only does water damage occur from weather events outside, it also can be caused internally by something like a leaking pipe. To ensure you catch water infiltration before it causes too much damage, you need to keep your eyes peeled for these signs of potential water damage.
If you see any kind of discoloration on ceilings, walls or flooring, it could be a sign that you have water damage. The discolored area does not need to feel damp. Any sort of discolored area could signal that there has been a water infiltration, and it’s something that should be investigated.
Wetness or dampness
One of the clearest signs that you may have water damage in your home is any wetness or dampness. If you find a spot on a floor, wall or ceiling that is wet or damp, you need to have it investigated right away, because it is likely coming from leaky Phoenix plumbing or from an outside water source getting into your home.
If you having flooring that is soft and rotting, it’s probably the result of water damage. Rotting of framing behind drywall also is a sign of water damage. In either of these cases, you need to get the damage fixed right away.
Mold is another sign that you might have water damage. Since mold grows in areas that are damp, it’s a sure sign that the area got wet at some point, even if it is dry now.
