Does Your Home Have Hidden Water Damage?

8/6/2020 (Permalink)

Sometimes water damage is sudden and dramatic: a pipe bursting, an appliance malfunctioning. Sometimes it sneaks up on us in the form of a slow leak that can go undetected for long periods of time. Areas that are prone to cumulative water damage include cabinets under sinks and the areas around AC units, applicances and wobbly toilets. Water can also creep in around exterior doors and windows and under siding. There are many areas in your home that are vulnerable to slow water accumulation and all of them can lead to damaged drywall and flooring, mold, and rot. If you suspect your home may have a moisture issue, contact the restoration professionals at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North and of Anderson. Our trained technicians have the equipment and experience to find moisture where it is hidden and create a plan of action to make your property "Like it never even happened."
