Homeowners in Garden Grove, Anaheim, Santa Ana and other surrounding communities may not be sure when it’s the right time to seek water damage help. And that’s understandable—many homeowners are unsure if what they’re seeing warrants a professional evaluation and intervention.

Our specialists are here to walk you through figuring it out.

When It’s More Than a Little Water

The reality is that more and more homeowners will have to deal with water damage claims over the coming year. Experts say that the number of fire damage claims have fallen over recent years, but the number of water damage claims keeps rising

So if you suspect you’re dealing with water damage at home, here are some of the signs you shouldn’t miss.

Your home now has a musty odor. Noticing an unusual (and unexplainable) smell can be one of the first signs your home has water damage that should be addressed. The smell is an early sign of mold or mildew. And that can only get worse over time.

You notice changes to your walls and windows. Warped, stained, or wet walls, doorframes, and window panes are a sign of water damage to your property. These issues worsen as time progresses, so you want to start correcting them as soon as they’re visible. And window panes and doorframes can let more water in from outside if they’re compromised.

Your floorboards or furniture are warping. Wood can be damaged within days. If that happens in your home, it’s best to start seeking help from professionals who can help you restore your home.

Water can begin to damage your home in just a few hours, so if you see any of these signs, it’s smart to immediately begin the restoration process. That’s why our team is here to help you at any time.
