Water damages often manifest in covert areas of a home or business.

Where Water Damage Can Hide:

  • Below windows. The exterior seal of a window and wall can become weathered, allowing water to seep into the wall unnoticed.

  • Behind siding. Siding panels overlap at various points around the house, which are where they can be susceptible to leaking.

  • Below thresholds. Most thresholds have a metal plate at their base, but these are not typically sealed against the elements. If the door is often exposed to weathering, water can eventually seep through to the wood.

  • Under exterior paint. Windowsills and deck railings are often painted repeatedly, which creates small gaps that water can seep through.

  • Behind the dishwasher. The dishwasher’s cubby is rarely inspected, and can harbor water damage from leaky seals or hoses.

  • Inside the walls. Water pipes that are leaky can cause water to seep into the walls, especially near sinks and tubs.

  • Under an unsteady toilet. The seal around the base of a toilet can begin to leak, often going unnoticed until the floor becomes unsteady due to the damage.

If your home or office has suffered water damage (even in a hidden place like one of these), SERVPRO of North Huntington is happy to help!
