In Houston, although it is dry most of the year, many home and business owners are unaware that water damage can cause severe problems in the property. Not only is the water damaging to your infrastructure, but it also creates a moist environment for mold to grow and thrive. 
ServiceMaster Advantage’s priority is to prevent mold from growing after water damage. Although water damage also requires professional help, mold is even more dangerous because it can be a health hazard to inhabitants in the property. This is why we wanted to give you some warning signs that indicate your home or business may have water damage:
  1. Discolored Surfaces & Stains: If you see your counters, walls or ceilings becoming discolored, your property may have water damage. Call ServiceMaster Advantage immediately for an inspection!
  2. Bumpy or Warped Surfaces: If the walls or surfaces around your windows or sink look misshapen or warped, there could be water underneath the surface. Contact a professional if you can’t locate the source of the damage.
  3. Pipe Corrosion: When water isn’t where it’s supposed to be, your plumbing could have corrosion in the pipes. This could cause further damage and mold growth if left untreated.
  4. Peeling paint: If you see peeling paint on the inside (or outside) of your home, this could indicate water damage.
