One thing that is often very common is it can be hard to spot the early signs of water damage. It is not always something that is visible or easily noticed. Unless you have an expert from a remediation company inspect the home it may not be something that you even notice at all. The nice thing is that they can also inform you about any potential future issues that you might have. Some of the things that you need to be aware of are strange and foul odors in your home.
If you small anything that is funky and not going away then you definitely need to get it inspected. The other thing is water markings on the walls and floors. Also any signs of mold will be a huge red flag and you should call a company to come do some testing in your home as soon as you can. There have been a lot of instances where health problems have occurred because a family neglected to take care of a mold issues and it has even killed people before. This can be very dangerous which is why we always suggest calling your insurance company and getting it taken care of now and not later on because it might just be too late.
