Water Damage In Dallas Can Easily Affect More Than What You Can See
Hidden Water Damage
There are several areas in your home that you never see. They exist, in various sizes and shapes, throughout your entire home. Some are above you, other below, and still others, around your home's exterior walls. Other areas exist within your living space - inside walls, under floors, and above ceilings.
Within a Dallas home, water damage can hide within these unseen areas. While you may believe that you have cleaned up all of the water from an overflowing bathtub, a substantial amount has most likely made its way into hidden recesses under the tub. Other areas where water might flow are under floorboards and down the inside of walls. Water does not always come from overflows, but can originate from many different locations within your home, and also from external sources.
Because water can remain hidden, it can also create much damage that can affect your home even though you cannot see it. This kind of harm can be just below the exterior surface that is visible, such as in wallpaper or linoleum, or deeper, for instance, concrete that disintegrates over time because of fluctuations in temperature combined with erosion. Your back steps might seem to be redone easily enough, but what happens when the concrete involved is part of your home's foundation, instead? Misdirected sump pumps may not seem sufficiently necessary to correct as long as the water eventually makes its way out of your home, but the path that water takes does matter, especially when it involves areas of your home that it should avoid.
