Identifying signs of previous water damage is essential because this will help you prevent future costly repairs like mold infestation. As a home buyer, hire a professional to thoroughly check for signs of earlier water damage. If the water damage is not found as soon as possible, it can result in costly repairs as well as a health risk because of molds.
Identify Water Damage:
1. Outside the Home
The ground should slope away from your home and not towards it to avoid water damage. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell whether or not the grade is proper around your home, but it can cause serious problems if water is not kept away from the foundation. Water can get in the minor cracks, and as it works its way, you could be experiencing water damage in no time.
2. Inside the Home
An obvious sign of water damage inside your home is water rings on walls or ceilings. This could result from something as simple as a leak from the roof or a leaking pipe. By examining the area around sinks and bathtubs, looking for warped floors and soft spots the source might be found.
