When your basement floods and you’re standing in puddles of water, it’s pretty obvious you have a water damage problem on your hands. But water damage isn’t always so apparent. Hidden leaks can often be found in your walls, and the effects can be just as devastating.
Fortunately, there are advanced methods of hidden leak detection that can allow you to prevent unwanted surprises in your home or building. Contact Tri State Restorations to learn all about our infrared camera inspections and water removal services in the Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia areas.
Signs of Hidden Leaks
You may not be able to actually see the water damage—but there are often warning signs indicating a problem behind your walls. Signs of hidden leaks can include:
- An unusual increase in water bills
- Cracking or peeling wallpaper
- Discoloration in the floors, walls, or ceiling
- Mysterious musty smell
- Excess moisture in unusual parts of the home
Keep in mind that some of these indicators—like peeling wallpaper or discoloration—can also form as a result of old age. Ask yourself if the damage has suddenly appeared or if it’s been forming for years. If you’re worried, just give us a call to schedule an inspection and we’ll let you know if your situation is due to hidden leaks so you can proceed with repairs as needed.
