Yes, unfortunately water damage may be a slow hidden progression, such as from a small plumbing leak inside a wall. If left untreated, even a small leak can exacerbate over time, leading to extensive damage and pricey repairs.
An untreated leak can cause a number of problems within a household, such as:
- Pipe corrosion
- Electrical issues
- Damaged carpet
- Wall discoloration, bulging, pealing, and cracking
- The appearance of mold and mildew
- The weakening of your foundation and other structural elements
- Decreased home value
If you notice any signs of water damage, take back control immediately by contacting Abbotts Fire and Flood San Diego.
