Is It Time To Call For Water Removal For Your Carmel Property?

If you notice water damage anywhere in your home, it is best to determine whether or not the issue is old or new. The quicker you determine whether you are dealing with recent damage or an older problem, the faster the water removal can begin.

Calling SERVPRO to help you assess the potential water damage in your home is essential if you are not sure where the issue stems from. Water removal in Carmel can help you to eliminate the moisture and also make it easier to locate the source of the intrusion. The following are helpful steps that you can use to find out if the signs of water damage are new or if it has been brewing for some time:

Determine the Materials

SERVPRO technicians can show you how water can impact different materials in various ways. Brick, tile, and other sturdy materials show if water damage has been around for a while because it takes time for the signs of wear to show up and create leaking. However, if you see damage on hardwood flooring, carpeting or drywall, this could be new damage.

Spot Rings

With materials like wood floors, drywall, and other soft materials, they could develop rings if the damage has built up over some time. Water soaks in and starts discoloring the material, leaving a stain behind as it dries. Once this pattern goes on, it leaves several rings showing the pattern of water damage.

Touch the Area

When water damage is newer, the area can be wet but not yet soft. Should you touch your drywall or ceiling and the material is soft to the touch, water has had ample time to soak in, ruining the integrity of it. This is when it is time to think about detection services and water removal in Carmel, which is where SERVPRO is more than happy to help.
