Water damage can take many forms. Some of which are not subtle at all!
Water stains can indicate where water is penetrating a roof for example and leave yellow-ish stains on the ceiling.
Water damage can occur from one-time events such as burst water heater or a broken pipe from a freeze.
Another source of water damage can be from a backed up septic tank.
That’s the other way to determine water damage… it often leaves behind a terrible odor!
Water damage can be significant. The damage remains and can even continue to progress after the water has subsided.
