Signs Of Water Damage In Your Coon Rapids Home
Look for These Signs of Water Damage that can Affect Your Coon Rapids Home’s Interior
Plumbing lines provide each bathroom and the kitchen of your Coon Rapids home with running water. A break in any of these lines or in a drain line can create serious problems that require an immediate reaction. This often does not happen when leaks occur in hidden places, like within walls and under floors.
Affecting the softest materials of your home in Coon Rapids first, water damage progresses from almost undetectable to severe deterioration, with only a very few number of things escaping some level of harm. Because hidden leaks rarely receive the attention they need when they first start, damage in unseen locations can become quite bad.
When you notice changes in the ceilings and walls, this can signify previous problems or continuing ones. It may have been large amounts of water (perhaps a sink overflowed), or it could be a tiny leak or a loose drain if you see water stains. Water stains do not happen immediately, however, but show a water problem existed at least a few weeks prior to their appearance.
When you see a ceiling that is lower in one area, typically the very center, this can mean weight of trapped water is weighing it down. Gray water from a broken drain or clean from a loosened pipe can both cause ceilings to collapse if left in this condition.
Problems with your flooring, including carpets and hardwood, can also happen when water invades your living space. Repeated soaking and drying out can make carpets brittle and worn. Wooden floors can lose their finish and split or warp, which can become unsafe.
Rusted hinges, as well as windows and doors that no longer close and open normally, can also indicate water damage is happening inside your house. This type of water damage often affects the entire house and happens when the humidity levels remain higher than normal for long periods.
