Dallas Homeowners Must Be Aware Of Unseen Water Damage

Homeowners in Dallas want to keep their homes in tip-top condition. A well-cared-for home is much nicer to live in than one that hasn’t been maintained. Looking after your house also keeps its value up in case you want to sell it one day.

Homeowners should take the risk of water damage in Dallas seriously. Some water leaks are apparent, such as a leaking faucet or a puddle forming under an appliance. However, there are some hidden sources of leaks.

What are some hidden sources of water damage?

Some common unseen causes of water damage include:
    •    Clogged water lines including plumbing lines but also HVAC systems and gutters
    •    Corrosion in pipes due to age and rust
    •    Damaged pipe joints or warping due to sudden temperature changes
    •    Loose or broken connections between appliances and water lines
    •    Tree roots intruding into pipes and breaking them

How can I look for hidden leaks?

Keep an eye out for any signs of water damage in your home, such as damp spots on the walls and ceiling, signs of mold growth, damp patches on the carpet, or a sudden change in your water bills. Always be vigilant and do not ignore any signs of water damage.
