1/24/2022 (Permalink)

When water damage happens to your home it could be stressful and overwhelming. We at SERVPRO of West Sacramento care about your property and belongings.

Water damage inside your home is very time-sensitive, the best way to mitigate damages is to find the water and source as soon as possible. Early signs of water damage can sometimes be overlooked. If you know what you are looking for, it will make it easier for you to spot the water damage you should be aware of in your home.

Visible stains and Discoloration  

Ceilings, walls, and floors may also show spots or stains in areas where water is present. Water spots cause discoloration in many different shades and shapes. These marks may appear darker and then fade. This is a common trait of water damage.

Strong Musty Odors

Pungent, earthy, and musty smells are almost always a giveaway that there is some kind of growth. Growth happens when excess water or moisture is present. Often microbial growth and water damage are coupled. Whatever the source of water is, it will need to be stopped prior to any remediation efforts for the microbial damage.
