Below are some easy-to-spot signs of water damage.

 

1) Warped Floors

Cracked, buckled, or loose flooring is often a clear sign of water damage. If you have wooden floors, watch out for soft spots, staining, or warping. If your carpet has white or dark spots, smells musty, or feels damp to the touch, chances are you have water damage.

2) Peeling Paint on Walls

When walls soak up water, they expand slightly. This is often hard to notice, but it can cause your paint to peel off, bubble, or crack due to the elevated pressure. Also, watch out for “sweating walls” (the appearance of a thin film of water droplets).

3) Mold Growth

Dark and damp areas are a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. If you notice any signs of active mold—blotches of greenish growth on surfaces—there is a potential water source causing damage.

4) Swollen Furniture

When a flood happens, excess water is absorbed into furniture, causing damage. Some materials are at a lower risk for water damage, but many types of furniture are likely to mold if they’re exposed to water.

Wooden furniture is at high risk of water damage. Wood absorbs water like a sponge, leading to warping, peeling, rotting, and discoloration if left untreated. Watch out for furniture that feels damp, spongy, or has white or dark stains.

5) Higher Water Bills

Are you noticing unreasonably high water bills lately? This is another sign that you may have a hidden leak somewhere in your home that’s causing water damage. In fact, the leak might show up long before you notice other indications of water damage, such as mold growth, humidity, dampness, cracking or peeling paint, or water stains.
