Water Damage in St. Petersburg Can Cause Odors and Other Problems

Stained walls and ceilings can be signs of water damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Work to Eliminate Water Damage in Your Home

Many people in St. Petersburg enjoy time by the ocean, but even a small amount of water inside a home can create substantial and costly problems. It is preferable if homeowners can prevent these from happening, but restoration can also help a home after damage starts.

Water seeping into areas of your St. Petersburg residence that should remain dry can cause water damage to develop. It is also possible for moisture to cause damage if it steadily, although slowly, enters through cracks in the foundation or via a loosened washing machine line. Numerous ways exist that permit water to impact your otherwise dry home.

One problem that water causes in a home is the development of odors. Mustiness that seems to come from everywhere can indicate a problem with raised humidity. Sometimes, odors remain concentrated in one location within the home, such as an unventilated bathroom. Stagnant air that remains humid is also perfect for the development of microbial problems, which can also produce bad smells.

Water damage shows itself in other ways, too.

Walls and ceilings are only one surface in your home that paint covers. Other items can have a coat covering them. High humidity can cause many paints to begin chipping and flaking. Other times, bubbling under large areas of paint indicate water damage to an area.

Walls and ceilings with staining can often point to water damage as the underlying cause. The cause is often a drip or other leak somewhere above.

Rust and corrosion of metal décor, hinges, in addition to the tarnishing of polished metals can show that a problem with water damage. This problem can cause health effects to occupants.

Carpets can become loose or begin to disintegrate when exposed to water. Other textiles can slowly become brittle and tear easily.
