Water damage can stem from a variety of sources, including floods, plumbing issues, or leaky roofs. However, no matter what caused the water damage, it’s important that this type of damage does not go ignored.

3 Uncommon Signs of Water Damage

Our team knows that certain signs of water damage are more obvious, such as visible mold growth, but other indicators of water damage can be more subtle, so they may go unnoticed for a long time. Here are three lesser-known signs of water damage to be aware of:

  • Warped flooring. When certain types of flooring materials absorb water, they become warped. The same can happen with walls and ceilings. Warped floors are not as sturdy or reliable as undamaged flooring, so it’s important that you reach out to a professional to locate the source of your water issue as soon as possible.
  • Peeling paint. Water in your walls can cause paint and wallpaper to peel away from the wall. This type of water damage can cause a lot of issues with the structural integrity of your entire home, so it’s important not to waste time calling restoration services in this scenario.
  • Higher utility bills. If you start using a lot more water in a short amount of time, it’s normal for your utility bill to go up. However, if your water usage stays about the same but your bill has suddenly skyrocketed, you likely have a leak somewhere in your home. When there’s a leak, there’s usually water damage or the potential for damage.

No one wants to deal with water damage in their home, but the longer you put off hiring restoration services to get your home back to undamaged condition, the more extensive your damages will be.
