If you have experienced water damage you should consider contacting your local SERVPRO for professional Water Damage Restoration. We are your local professionals for immediate and long- term water damage.  Some water damage issues do not show sudden damage and become apparent over time.  The effects of water can take days to weeks to show damage when the source is not noticed.  The extent of damage to the structure of your home will depend on how long the water has been standing.

Water damage can appear in the structure of your home in several different forms.  Listed below are things that you may notice if water is causing damage to your home:

  • Dark or Wet Spots on the Ceiling, Floor or Walls
  • Cracking, Bubbling, or flaking
  • Puddles of water
  • Sounds of Running Water
  • Increase in Utility Bill
  • Damp, Musty, or Moldy Smell

Damages listed above can be caused from a roof leak, broken pipe, or condensation from an air conditioner.  If there is water leakage behind the walls staining and peeling can occur.  The walls can become warped and develop a musty odor.  If the water damage is not taken care of mold growth will form and become visible on the walls and baseboards. 

If you have experienced an emergency water damage or an existing leak, call today for immediate restoration services.  We have extensive water damage restoration training, and our process emphasizes regular monitoring and documentation of the drying process from beginning to end.  Working with the homeowner to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
