How to Repair Water Damage On Drywall & Ceilings.
Water can be destructive, especially in locations prone to heavy rainfall. Drywall and ceilings are among the most vulnerable areas in your home. They’re highly susceptible to water infiltration during a storm or water disaster and can even collapse if faced with too much moisture.
4 Common Signs of Drywall Water Damage
It’s generally pretty easy to spot water damage on drywall. Just look for these four telltale signs:
1. Water Stains
Yellow or brown stains are a clear indication of water damage on ceilings. These stains may grow or spread over time due to the water damage worsening behind your walls. Contact Same Day Restoration for same-day water mitigation.
2. Peeling or Bubbling Paint
Your drywall isn’t supposed to bubble or peel off. If you find that an area on your ceiling or drywall is peeling or bubbling, chances are there’s a water leak. Trapped water between your walls will start to deteriorate your paint over time.
3. Sagging or Bulging Drywall
Soft, sagging, or bulging drywall is a clear sign of water damage. Excessive water exposure can weaken drywall, leading to those sagging and building areas. Get in touch with a professional to mitigate the damages and restore your drywall.
4. Musty Odor or Mold Spores
All of that moisture trapped behind your walls creates a breeding ground for mold. Mold thrives in warm, moist environments and emits a musty odor as it spreads. If you smell any strange, musty odors or physically see mold growing on your walls, call the experts at Same Day Restoration.
