Five Signs of Water Damage In Your Home

Whether you are thinking of buying/renting home, it is very important to keep on the look out for signs of water damage before you commit on living there.

Unfortunately, some people do not know how to recognize the signs of water damage so they settle for a home with problems. In this article the water damage experts at Rainbow International will magnify 5 signs of water damage in your home.

  1.     Look for signs of water marks (looks like a ring stain) on ceiling,   walls, windows and under the sink cabinet.
  2.    If the house has hardwood floor, look for buckling or cracks.
  3.    Look at the gutters- are they carrying the water far away from       the house?
  4.   Check to see if the home has shingles missing- this could lead to water leakage in the home.
  5.    Test your sense of smell and notice if you can smell a mildew smell. This can be caused by water damage that was not properly restored.
