One of water damage’s worst characteristics is its capacity to lurk deep within areas of your property that you may not discover right away. When water damage stays hidden, you could find issues like mold and excess moisture forming in your Oklahoma City home.

Finding water damage in the places where it hides the most often is a skill that could save your property from costly losses. There are many places in your home you can keep an eye on to guarantee hidden water damage is caught before it gets the chance to wreak havoc.

Pay attention to these problem areas as you work to protect your OKC home from water damage:

Your roof. Water damage that starts on the roof can be difficult to catch, especially if you don’t make a constant effort to climb up and check for issues.

When you do go up to check for damage, you might spot a minor leak and disregard it, only for it to transform into an expensive mess that requires a professional to fix.

Leaks that form on your roof are also capable of dripping down into your attic, presenting another hidden challenge for you to deal with. Your dim and damp attic can quickly begin growing mold as soon as water begins to drip inside.

In your bathroom. You are sure to have already found issues like leaks and excess moisture inside your Mustang bathroom. Your plumbing and appliances are skilled at concealing water issues, leaving you seeking the source.

Look around your sink for any wet spots and your faucet for dripping water. You will find similar issues around your toilet and shower, like puddled water and an excess of bathroom moisture.

Keeping a close eye on these areas is all it takes to prevent bathroom water damage from turning into an expensive disaster. You should also examine your plumbing and schedule routine repairs to keep your bathroom in good shape year-round.

Other appliances. When your appliances aren’t serving as a convenience in your home, you might find them hiding water damage. Appliance malfunctions become even harder to deal with when leaks find a hiding spot under or behind these huge machines.

When performing your hunt for water damage, it’s a good idea to move your appliances away from the wall so you can find any hidden water.

Don’t use your appliances without performing a quick inspection for damage first! You can avoid running into any issues all together by retiring your old appliances as soon as they begin giving you trouble.
