Don't Overlook Bathroom Water Damage in Your Poughkeepsie Home!
If you’re like most people, your bathroom is one of the dampest spots in your home. Between the sinks, showers and bathtubs, there’s a lot of plumbing going in and out of your bathroom. And it’s plumbing you use every day.
Along with your kitchen and your basement, your bathroom is one of the most common places that water damage can be found. Like the kitchen, your bathroom can show small signs of water damage that are evident before the issue becomes serious.
Because water damage and plumbing repairs can quickly become costly and extensive, it’s a good idea to periodically check your bathroom for small signs of water damage. When you catch a leak or damage early, you can take the necessary steps to correct the problem before it evolves into a major issue.
Since water damage spreads quickly, the sooner you begin to correct the process, the better off you and your home will be. Here are some things you might notice when you’re dealing with bathroom water damage:
Standing water should always raise a red flag. Whether the water is standing inside your shower or on your floor, it’s something that needs to be evaluated. You may want to check for clogs or get in touch with a plumber.
Damp drywall can be a sign of a leak behind your wall. If you notice your drywall has damp spots, water spots or stains, you may be dealing with a leak near it or behind it. That leak will need to be repaired and the resulting water damage corrected. The longer that leak goes, the worse all around it will be for repairs and remediation to the damaged areas around it.
Signs of mold mean a water issue. If you notice mold spots under your bathroom sink, near your tub or around your ceiling, then you likely have a water issue in your bathroom. Mold spreads easily and fast, so any issue like this should be repaired as quickly as possible.
