Make Sure You Inspect Walls And Floors Whenever You Have Ceiling Water Damage
I don't know how many homeowners avoid fixing their ceiling water
damage, without realizing the effects it has on other parts of the home.
If you have a water leak and the ceiling damage is next to a wall, what
makes you think that the water isn't running down the inside of the wall
Obviously if you have ceiling water damage and you're not doing anything about it, I doubt if you care about the other areas of your home that could be suffering from water damage also. That's probably the majority of people, but if you're reading this article, you're one of the few, who maintain their home regularly.
If you have any ceiling water damage, you need to inspect all areas directly underneath it or next to it. You wouldn't believe the damage that I have found, when I have removed couches, tables and chairs from areas next to or directly under the ceiling water damage. You wouldn't believe the amount of mold, mildew and fungus that was growing their.
Obviously these people didn't know what the ceiling water damage spots look like and weren't concerned about the rest of their home. If you have any spots on your ceiling, make sure that you inspect the areas around them. This will include all of your furniture, baseboards, flooring and walls.
Often I refer to common sense as the key to home inspecting. If you have a water leak somewhere, it should be fixed as soon as possible. One small water leak can end up costing thousands of dollars in the future in home repair bills.
