Wall Leak Check

Posted on Posted in Waterproofing

Last Sunday’s rains may have brought about leaks through the walls of your house. If left untreated, a water-damaged wall can develop serious mold, mildew, fungus, and odor problems. It is possible to visually inspect the drywall and note water damage.

The first test for leaking through walls is a visual inspection. Look for signs on the floor such as peeling wallpaper, discolored carpeting, stained and warped wood and residue on concrete. Walls with water damage may be discolored, swollen, and soft to the touch.

 

It the leak is recent, you may not find any signs of it.  By the time you notice signs of leakage, the leaks have been occurring for a while and the damage may be more extensive than what you can see.
