Watch For These Signs of Water Damage in Your Citrus Heights House

Water damage is sometimes obvious. The damage is easy to see after a flood, a burst pipe, or an overflowing toilet or sink. Water damage also happens in less noticeable ways. This is caused by an undetected leak or seepage. Some key causes of water damage are a damaged pipe, a leaking washing machine or dishwasher, seepage from your garden, and a leak in your roof or guttering. SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians are trained to deal with water damage from any source and restore your home.

Water damage in your Citrus Heights home is unpleasant and causes harm to your belongings and the structure of your home. Look out for these common signs of water damage:

Water Pooling

Always look for the cause of any pool of water, no matter how small. A pool of water means something in your home has leaked, or water has got in from the outside.


Water damage causes mold. Look out for telltale signs of mold in your home or on your belongings.

Stains On Ceilings Or Walls

Water damage often leaves behind a discolored stain. Be aware of any new stains on your walls or ceiling.

Unpleasant Smells

Unseen water often stagnates and causes an unpleasant smell. A musty or moldy smell is an indicator of potential water damage.

Sagging Walls or Ceilings

The build up of water over time saturates wall and ceiling materials and eventually causes them to sag. Walls or ceilings that have suffered enough water damage to buckle are unsafe, and it is vital to seek professional assistance at once.

Damp Floors

Damp floors are a sure sign of water damage. Obvious signs include wet patches or stains on floors of all kinds and visibly damp areas on wood floors. Check carpets and rugs regularly for damp patches and lift them up to check underneath.
