Water damage is one of the more stressful problems that homeowners can face. It’s truly amazing how much damage a bit of unplanned water can do, and horrifying how much it can cost to repair that damage. Carpeting is especially vulnerable to water damage and may have to be removed and thrown away if the damage is severe enough.
Here are some tips for how to catch water damage before it ruins your carpet:
• Standing water - Easily the most blatant sign of water damage, having standing water indicates a major problem, either with the plumbing or with flooding. The situation only gets more dangerous if the water is unsanitary, like when a sewage pipe bursts. When faced with standing water, call in professional help as soon as you possibly can.
• Water spots - These are more common, but also easier to miss due to a lack of visible water. Taking the form of stains encircling water sources, these leaks can spell disaster for any nearby drywall or wooden flooring. Do your best to isolate the water leak and assess its severity.
