Do you have a small roof leak or a water spot on the floor where bathwater splashes? While those little leaks and water stains may seem inconsequential, more damage and potential health risks could be hidden underneath the surface. So what are the signs you should be looking for further water damage to your Indianapolis home? 

Water Leaks

If you have a small water stain on your ceiling, you first want to determine where the water came from. If you have access above the ceiling like an attic, you can get up there and look for signs of a water leak from the roof or a leaking pipe. Even condensation from a pipe can cause water to drip and stain a ceiling over time. The source of the water leak is not always right above the water stain. Water from a leak can travel down the wood framing, across wires, along pipes and other structural pieces behind your home's ceilings and walls. 

If you cannot look behind the wall or ceiling, you may want to call water damage restoration experts like us at SERVPRO Indianapolis West. We have the expertise and tools to examine the water damage's full extent and determine the best steps to repair the water damage and stop any further damage from happening. 

Another sign beside a water stain of water damage is a soft spot on your home's walls, ceilings, or floors. This happens a lot around bathtubs, kitchen sinks, windows, and external walls. While there might not always be a water stain or obvious sign of a water leak, a spot where you can push in on the floor or wall, or ceiling can be a sign of water damage that is hidden below the surface. This could be an easy restoration or a potentially difficult one where there could be mold damage and extensive damage to the house's structure. 


In any case, the sooner you call us, the faster the damage can be stopped and repaired. We call this action "Mitigation," and this means to lessen the severity. When we service a home with potential water damage, we work quickly to identify the source of the water damage, the areas of the house that have been affected, then take steps to immediately stop the water leak and restore the water damaged areas and make it "Like it never even happened."
