You may assume that a water leak would be easy to find and something you’d notice right away. Unfortunately, that is not always true. The leak can be hidden behind walls or under flooring. Knowing what to look for will help. There are several signs that mean you are or have experienced water damage. The most noticeable sign would be standing or pooling water. This can happen from your appliances or A/C malfunction or even from a leak in your roof. Another sign would be discoloration where your walls or ceilings show wet spots or yellow, brown or copper stains. Your drywall may also bulge or the paint may begin to peel. Of course, once your drywall becomes wet it is the perfect place for mold to develop as it acts like a sponge. This can cause odors as well as discoloration, usually black spots. Flooring can also show signs of water damage such as warping, buckling or swelling.
