What to Look for When You Need to Spot a Ceiling Leak in Your North Kingston Home
Do you know what to do if you notice the signs of a ceiling leak at your North Kingston home?
No one likes to think about dealing with big home maintenance issues, especially those that involve water issues. But it’s a common occurrence for American homeowners.
Leak claims are among the millions of water damage claims that are filed every year. On average, about one out of 50 American homeowners every year file a water damage claim.
So if you have to file a claim, you’re likely not even the only person in your neighborhood who has. And that can add up to millions of dollars in cumulative property damage.
Take a Closer Look at Your Ceiling
Here’s what to look for when you’re searching for a water leak in your ceiling:
Water spots on your ceiling. These damp spots or stains are signs of water damage. They can indicate the beginnings of water damage or mold issues.
Bubbling paint. You may notice the paint on your ceiling blistering and peeling away from the wall and ceiling. That’s a sign that water damage could be happening.
A distinctive and musty odor in your home. This is one of the first things many people notice before a leak really becomes noticeable. It’s also one of the first signs your home could have mold or mildew damage, which will require prompt and thorough remediation.
Higher than normal water bills. While not all ceiling leaks are associated with plumbing, some are. It’s important to check your water bill and see if it’s higher than you expect. You can monitor this by checking your water bill every month and looking for abnormalities.
