Seven signs that you may have a water damage in your home

Knowing the signs of water damage in your home could potentially save you hundreds even thousands of dollars.  Most people overlook everyday things that should raise red flags and alert you to a problem. Here at SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill we want you to be aware of these signs.

  • Sudden unusual dampness or humidity
  • An unexplained increase in your water bill
  • Hearing running water when all faucets are turned off
  • Damp, musty, moldy or even sewage smell
  • Puddles or west spots around plumbing
  • Cracked or flakey drywall
  • Dark or wet spots on the walls or ceiling

Seeing any of these things in your h9ome should alert you to the possibility of a problem. The faster you respond to this potential problem the less risk for secondary damage. Reducing the amount of damage to your home will greatly reduce the amount of money spent to fix the issue.
