Summertime often brings a lot of rain for us, and it is important to be aware of the many signs that indicate water damage. Repeated rain showers and storms put your home at a greater risk for water damage. That’s why you should consider professional basement waterproofing by the experts at NV Waterproofing & Foundation Repair. We provide comprehensive wet basement solutions, including exterior waterproofing and interior water management systems, to resolve your home's water problems once and for all. 

Here are a few of the signs of water damage for you to look out for: 

Visible Mold

Mold forms from the inside out. So when you finally notice it, no matter how much you scrub, the problem will not go away. It thrives in warm damp environments, and if you find any in your home, it can indicate that there has been some water damage. Mold is extremely dangerous to inhale and can cause a variety of health issues. If you find mold anywhere in your home, you should contact a mold remediation company to remove the mold from your home. After the mold has been extracted, have a professional waterproofing company, like NV Waterproofing, to address the underlying water issue.

Follow Your Nose 

If you smell something musty or damp in your basement or other parts of your home that may be out of place, it is a high possibility that water damage is to blame. Mold, mildew, and other contaminants are the result of water damage, as they give off a strong, unique odor and lurk within your walls.

Warped Walls 

If your walls begin to feel uneven or appears crooked, this can be a sign of water damage. When drywall absorbs water, it begins to swell and becomes soft. Over time, the damaged area starts to crumble, especially around the baseboards. Also, if you notice your paint peeling or bubbling, this is another sign of water damage. 

Wet Patches on the Wall or Floor

If you find a stain on a wall, floor, or ceiling that isn't wet to the touch, it means that there is a leak in your home and that leak will most likely happen again. These stains can lead to a variety of other waterproofing issues, and it is important to get things fixed before they have an opportunity to get worse.
