Signs of

water damage

to lookout for.

While hidden water damage in your home or business cannot be easily detected without professional assistance, there are certain signs of water damage beyond water pouring in from a rain event or a broken pipe. We recommend that you examine your home or business for these signs.

Odor

Check all areas of your home or business for signs of a musty or moldy odor coming from an unknown source. If you sense an odor, we recommend that you have a professional inspection from the experts at Burg’s. When it comes to mold, there is always more than meets the eye.

Water Stains

Probe the walls and ceilings throughout your home or business for staining. The color of staining can vary but is often lightly gray, black or yellow. This water damage could mean a leak is currently present. We provide a quick response to assess the source and begin to dry all affected areas.

Mold Growth

Mold thrives on organics materials, high humidity and areas with minimal air flow. Mold loves dark environments and is the direct result of the presence of water. We recommend looking for the appearance of mold growth on walls, ceilings or floors, paying close attention to areas with little or no light.

Bubbling Walls

Any signs of bubbling on a ceiling or wall, both small and large, can indicate water building up underneath the paint or wallpaper. Most types of paint and wallpaper act as a vapor barrier, not only making water damage more difficult to identify but also making it a haven for mold growth.

Sagging Ceiling Surface

When a ceiling in your home or business is sagging, it’s best to refrain from standing directly underneath the affected area as it may collapse at any moment. It is possible that a build-up of water is present and should be addressed immediately to prevent further damage and improve structural integrity.

Water Dripping

Water tends to takes the path of least resistance. Whether it’s dripping from the ceiling, around windows, through vents or down chandeliers, it’s important to determine if it’s coming from another room above or the roof. Structural integrity may be compromised and we recommend calling us for a consultation.

Base of Wall Wet

This sign of water damage can be tricky to spot as there may be items obstructing your view, although we recommend looking for dark spots, discoloration and baseboard swelling and separation. It’s important you check adjoining rooms for the origin of the water and shut off the source.

Wet Floor

A wet floor can be one of the more obvious signs of water damage, although, in a smaller leak event, it may not be as evident as a pool of water on the floor and levels of saturation may vary. Ramifications are still the same with any amount of moisture and we recommend a prompt response upon discovery.

DOs

Call Burg’s to start the mitigation process!

When safe, shut off water source if possible.

Turn off breakers in affected areas when safe to access.

Wipe excess water from horizontal surfaces.

Remove any paintings, pictures, electronics, sensitive paperwork, etc to an unaffected area.

DONTs

Do not enter a room with standing water as the risk for electrical shock could be present.

Do not leave any books, magazines or other colored items on wet carpet.

Do not stand under any ceiling that is sagging.

Do not use a household vacuum to remove water.

Do not televisions or other electronics when standing in water.

If an unfortunate event happens,

Burg’s has you covered.
