If you suspect, or even smell moisture in your home, don’t wait – call SERVPRO® of North Augusta immediately.

Signs of Moisture in Your Home

Undetected leaks are common in homes and likely to occur no matter what you do to prevent them, that is why routine maintenance is necessary. However, if you are looking to purchase a home or new homeowners, it can be hard to determine the water loss history of a house. For that reason, be on the lookout for the following signs of moisture:

  • Softened, spongy drywall
  • Peeling or bubbling wallpaper
  • Moist, damp smells
  • Water seeping from portions of the wall

Why is it an Issue?

One normally would think, “if there is no visible water, there’s no problem, right?” The short answer is no. Moisture is an invitation fold microbial growth to come right in, and once that occurs, the damage is done. No matter the extent of mold, it is always expensive to take proper care of if left alone. The sooner the moisture is taken care of, the less likely mold is subject to grow.
