Water Damage

DID YOU KNOW? That nearly 37% of U.S. homeowners claim to have had some type of water damage, and nearly 14,000 people experience a water disaster every day.


Today we wanted to focus on water damage tips and what to look out for! There are many areas in your home where water damage can happen. As a homeowner (or renter), you can’t prevent water damage but there are steps you can take to ensure you catch these problems.

As you can see by the picture located above, this was a huge job that UWRG of Colorado Springs had at a homeowners house. Most of the time when water damage enters your home, the water penetrates through the drywall and the water will create this bubbling effect. This happens because paint has elasticity to it and will stretch due to the water coming in. 

The next picture you see is a perfect example of water damage on a homeowners ceiling. You can see that the paint is also doing a type of bubbling effect. If you notice this in your home, it could be water damage and with water damage comes the possibility of MOLD but don’t worry!
