Wall Water Damage

When it comes to your home or business, you need someone you can trust to protect it from damage. As the preferred residential and commercial provider of water damage restoration services, Same Day Restoration does the job right the first time so you can return to life as normal as soon as possible. Keep reading to know what signs to look for when you suspect water damage has occurred.


The Dangers of Wall Water Damage

Water can be destructive to your home or business. For example, mold growth reduces air quality, which can cause severe respiratory problems—especially for those with preexisting conditions like asthma. Water can also spread quickly to the flooring, subflooring, and foundation below, creating thousands of dollars in damage. Whatever you do, don’t ignore the problem. If you do, it will only get worse. Repair and replace the drywall as soon as possible to prevent water from seeping further into your home’s structure.

Signs of Water Damage on Plaster Walls

Wondering what wall water damage looks like? Here are the top five signs. Call Same Day Damage Restoration when you see water damage on walls.

Soft Spots

Water causes plaster to deteriorate over time. The longer it sits in the drywall, the more damage it will create.


Water seeps under paint and wallpaper and gets trapped between the wall and the material, causing it to bubble from the moisture.


Wet plaster often appears darker than the surrounding material. If you spot brown, yellow, gray, or black water rings on your walls, it’s time to give us a call.

Water Stains

Water stains or streaks on plaster are clear indicators of water damage. These marks can be lighter or darker than the surrounding plaster, depending on how severe the damage is.

Mold Growth

Mold can form on plaster within just 48 hours of contact with water. Mold often looks like blue, brown, or black spots on the wall.

Water Damage Wall Repair

Find the Source

Until the leak is stopped, damage will continue to spread throughout your property. Locate the leak’s source, and put it to a stop.

Remove the Damaged Drywall

Next up is getting rid of the damaged drywall. Once drywall gets wet, it can rarely be repaired. Chances are, it will need to be replaced with new drywall. You might even have to remove the existing drywall to locate the source of the leak.
