If you’re like most homeowners, two words can instantly strike fear in your heart: water damage. Whether you live in an old house or a new one, water can seriously threaten the safety, security, and aesthetic of your home, and it doesn’t take much to do damage that is both costly and difficult to remove. For that reason it’s important that you know the signs of water damage—both the obvious signs and the subtle ones—and take action if you notice any of them in your own home.
The good thing about obvious signs of water damage is that you will quickly notice it and can take immediate action to remedy the situation. Obvious signs of a problem with your plumbing include flooding, dripping water, leaky faucets, and puddles or water accumulation in places where it should not be. It’s important that homeowners also take the time to check out the basement and the water heater storage area, since these are places where water leaks or damage might be clearly visible, but you may not go in there often so it goes unrepaired for an extended period of time.
The more difficult type of water damage is the subtle kind—the kind that doesn’t leave an obvious trail. If you’re planning to move into a home (especially an older home), it’s critically important that you know what to look for, but even for homeowners not planning to move anytime soon, understanding and checking for these subtle indicators can save you a bundle of money and a lot of hassle.
